Mosby`s Diagnostic and Laboratory Test Reference (ISBN10: 0323020496; ISBN13: 9780323020497)

Summary: This comprehensive and up-to-date handbook features clinically relevant laboratory and diagnostic tests organized alphabetically for quick reference. Tests are presented in a consistent format, which allows for concise coverage without sacrificing the depth of detail necessary for a thorough understanding of diagnostic testing. Each test entry includes, where relevant, alternate or abbreviated test names; type of test; normal findings; possible critical values; test
explanation and related physiology; contraindications; potential complications; interfering factors; procedure and patient care (before, during, and after); and abnormal findings.

New to this Edition:
  • Fifteen new test entries -- including bone turnover biochemical markers (osteocalcin), breast tumor analysis, diabetes mellitus autoanitibody panel (insulin antibody), genetic testing, and HIV viral load -- present the latest tests and procedures.
  • An icon for patient teaching-related care indicates information that should be shared with patients and their families. New two-color illustrations clarify content and demonstrate how procedures are performed.
Key Features:
  • A portable size and durable cover make it handy as an on-the-spot reference.
  • A colorful design highlights vital information and enhances visual appeal.
  • The User's Guide to Test Preparation and Performance provides an overview and guidelines for each type of laboratory test and diagnostic procedure to ensure safety and accuracy.
  • Tests are organized alphabetically with A-to-Z thumb tabs for quick reference.
  • Each test entry begins on a new page making tests of interest easy to find.
  • Normal findings are included for adults (male and female), the elderly, and pediatric patients, where applicable, to provide complete clinical data.
  • Possible critical values are highlighted to alert readers to situations requiring immediate intervention.
  • Symbols next to drug-related interfering factors alert readers to the effects of pharmacologic agents on tests.
  • Increased and decrease abnormal findings are highlighted with directional arrows.
  • Home Care Responsibilities boxes provide important patient teaching guidelines and instructions for patients outside of acute care settings.
  • Each test is concluded with a Notes section that enables readers to add their own information.
  • Lists of tests by body system and test type allow the reader to quickly locate related studies.
  • Abbreviations for tests are listed at the end of the book, and symbols and units of measurement are provided in an appendix.
