Summary

This easy-to-use reference helps nurses prepare for and assist with more than 550 diagnostic tests. Part I includes nursing care before, during, and after the test; logos that highlight the most crucial information; and hundreds of illustrations, photos, charts, and tables that clarify and summarize test findings, related physiology, specimen collection, and more. For each test, readers learn the test description, purpose, patient preparation, equipment, procedures and post-test care, precautions, reference values, abnormal results, and interfering factors (such as diet and drugs). Part II presents key test findings for hundreds of selected disorders. Appendices include collection techniques for blood and urine samples, standard precautions, English-Spanish diagnostic test words and phrases, and more.
