Summary

CLINICAL AND NURSING IMPLICATIONS OF LABORATORY TESTS is a comprehensive reference designed to help nurses and other health professionals meet the new challenges of managed and efficient health care. The laboratory tests are approached in the same way a clinical evaluation is made: first with a general screening panel, and then with a more in-depth evaluation of each organ system. Each test is explained; its value and limitations are defined, and clinical implications, nursing responsibilities, and patient preparation are discussed.
