9780815155867: Mosby's Manual of Diagnostic and Laboratory Tests

MOSBY'S MANUAL OF DIAGNOSTIC AND LABORATORY TESTS is a complete and comprehensive resource for both nurses and allied health professionals in either academic or clinical settings. This is the first full-color lab test book available, and is liberally illustrated with color photos and drawings that show exactly how various tests are performed. Every clinically significant test is covered, including the latest tests: arteriography, bone densitometry, and the CA 19-9, CA 125, and CA 27.29 (CA 15-3) tumor markers. The Manual is written in the clear style that has become the hallmark of its authors, Kathleen and Timothy Pagana. Mosby's Manual is the most thorough, reliable, up-to-date, and easy-to-use lab test book on the market. Each chapter of the Manual opens with an overview of the studies grouped the test type being discussed, including specimen collection techniques. The studies within each test type chapter are then presented in easy-to-find alphabetical order, and consistently include the following information: test name (including alternative test names and abbreviations), normal findings, indications, test explanation, contraindications, potential complications, interfering factors, procedure and patient care (before, during, and after), test results and clinical significance, and related tests.
