DESCRIPTION

Intended for undergraduate students in nursing, medicine, and allied health practicing nurses (general clinical reference), this text is a comprehensive reference for laboratory and diagnostic tests. It covers a wide range of diagnostic tests, presenting the material in a quick reference outline format that makes it easy to locate and identify key information, particularly for on-the-spot use in the clinical setting. It covers essential, clinical information in a concise, consistent, easy-to-follow format, consisting of the following heading sequence - explanation of the test; normal values; procedure; clinical implications (of decreasing or increasing findings); interfering factors; patient preparation/aftercare; and clinical alerts. Tests are organized by specimen (blood, urine, faeces, CSF), types of tests (X-ray, nuclear, ultrasound, endoscopy) and function (pulmonary function, hormones, enzymes, metabolism, immunity, prenatal).
