Summary

This comprehensive and up-to-date handbook offers clinically-relevant information on laboratory and diagnostic tests. Test entries are organized alphabetically for quick reference and are presented in a consistent format, which allows for concise, yet detailed coverage. Each test entry includes: 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. Related tests are extensively cross-referenced throughout the book. The book's portable size and durable cover make it a handy on-the-spot clinical reference.
