Editorial Reviews

Review

".a comprehensive reference that is easy to read and full of relevant information.this book offers a broader perspective, nicely packaged, with several unique features that make it an excellent choice for both students and healthcare providers.  Weighted Numerical Score: 95 - 4 Stars!" - Maribeth Moran, RN, MSN, CPN, CNE (University of Oklahoma College of Nursing), © Doody's Review Service

"The 700 laboratory and diagnostic tests in this reference are divided into 12 sections according to the body fluid analyzed or the type of scan performed. Each entry explains the basic pathophysiology behind the test, summarizes patient care and the procedure, and lists normal findings, critical values, indications, contraindications, potential complications, interfering factors, the clinical significance of test results, and related tests. The fourth edition adds 30 studies including breast cancer genomics, intravascular ultrasound, computed tomography of the heart, and platelet closure time. Online access is included."

I love this book, I have recommended it to all my nursing classmates, and I use it at work. This is an excellent book and I have learned so much more from it. It goes into really good detail on all tests. What the test is, why its important, what its for, gives rationals for abnormal values. I cant stress enough how great this book is.

I bought this book for my care plan and the book was great, there were a couple of lab values that I wished it would have gone into more depth but that is because my professor wanted very precise information. The book, for the most part, went into depth about each value and the pros and cons of the values. The book save me time and many hours of sleep. I highly recommend the book because trust me, you'll need it.

This book is pretty great. It has very useful information about lab tests and it is organized by type of specimen (blood, urine, etc.) or method (radiologic, magnetic, etc.) and then alphabetically. The only problem I had with it is that the index indicates the wrong page numbers for many items, which made it more difficult to use. It is a nice size with color coding on the edges of the page to designate which section you are in. It explains the purpose of the test, related tests, the nurse's role in the test, and what to teach the patient about the test. as well as normal results and what abnormal findings may mean.

I just bought this book and I'm making a homework about blood chemistry test. So far so good, the only thing is I can't find the normal glucose levels in adults I know everybody knows it but thats BASIC! and I can't find "Albumin" a basic one too. But with the ones that are in the book ITS AWESOME! the explanation is very simple, understandable and it gives you a very nice idea of what you are evaluating, which organs to focus on and which illness to think when you haves altered values. I really recommend this book. :)

This book was required for a med-surg nursing class. Book is somewhat disappointing. Information is usually in-depth and useful, however, the most frustrating aspect is that the page numbers in the index do not correspond to different lab values...so it is frustrating and time-consuming to actually find what you are looking for! Very poor organization of the book...but, if you can find the information, the info. is useful.
