This complete lab book contains the latest information on testing organized alphabetically for quick reference. It is both student-friendly and provides great information for practicing nurses. Significance of Test Results sections list the diseases and disorders that are associated with abnormal findings and Test Result Indications sections list the possible clinical significance of abnormal findings. Tests are presented in a format that emphasizes the nurse's role, and includes Basics the Nurse Needs to Know and Nursing Care. The clinical purpose of each test is identified, and how each test is performed is clearly explained. A pronunciation guide for the name of each test helps with difficult terminology.
