Summary

Best money I have spent in a LONG time. “I'm a nursing student and part of our clinical rotation was to write down our patient’s lab results and note on any abnormals why they were abnormal for my particular patient. This book lists out not just the normal levels, but what conditions can contribute to the high or low values. Sometimes it's pages and pages of possible reasons. This baby is a fantastic time saver for me.”—Online Reviewer

Great for nursing school, you will use it constantly. “Best nursing lab book I've encountered. Definitely worth the money.”—Online Reviewer

Accuracy. “Very useful in clinical settings. Easy to read! Love this book!”—Katrina, Online Reviewer

The information nurses need…when, where, and how they need it!
Nursing-focused and easy-to-read, this full-color manual delivers all the information you need to understand how tests work, interpret their results, and provide quality patient care—pre-test, intra-test, and post-test.

Tests and procedures are listed in alphabetical order by their complete name for quick reference. The integrated index allows fast searches by abbreviation, synonym, disease/disorder, specimen type, or test classification.
