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 nursing school - needed a lab and diagnostics book that was up-to-date and thorough. This book is amazing - exactly what I needed.

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.

Required for RN program. Did not like this book and it was not as useful to me as the Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests by Joyce LeFever Kee which I used during my LPN program. The Mosby's book is a thicker volume but I cannot seem to find information in there as easily as I could find it in Kee's book. I'm sure it has a lot of information considering how thick it is (about 1200 pages) so either I did not know where to look or it has a lot of information that I did not need. Anyway, it was not useful for me.

I have never had a book that was so easy to use. It went through all the diagnostic and laboratory tests and explained each one in a quick but in-depth way so that you as the reader understood the process and what the correct values should be and also why a value might be abnormal. I utilized this item throughout nursing school when writing nursing assessments and recommendations. It was easy to quantify why the test was being ordered and then write the expected outcome with the help of this resource. Definitely needed in any medical schooling and as a resource after school.

Awesome tool for learning about patient labwork taken in the hospital. It is great in explaining what the test is for, the normal range, and what the abnormal findings mean. It helps in determining a plan of care for a patient including treatment and precautions. It is a very good tool to have on any hospital unit especially for brand new nurses.

Useful even for the layman if you want to understand better the reasons behind the tests you may be getting- even if the format is a bit disorganized. The more you know about your own health the better off you will be.

A-MAZ-ING book. I am generally rather critical when it comes to any books I use as a nurse, and also as a BSN student. This book totally won me over. I am positive I have gained a stronger insight regarding the whys and correlations and hows of labs testing because of this book. WELL DONE MOSBY!!
