Abstract:

This book is for undergraduate medical surgical nursing, and lab and diagnosis. Written by a highly respected author in the lab and diagnostic test field, this text/reference explains in detail the clinical significance of tests and diagnostic procedures. Its comprehensive coverage is augmented by a strong emphasis on nursing care as applied to lab and diagnostic tests, and on the relationship between nursing diagnoses and nursing care. Both scholarly and practical, it is ideal for use in both classroom and clinical settings. Each chapter is organized as an independent study unit complete with objectives, an organizing theme with background information (called an expository organizer), and test questions. - Publisher.
