Overview

Laboratory Tests and Diagnostic Procedures with Nursing Diagnoses is a complete nurse's guide to applying lab results and diagnoses to patient care. It will teach you how to use data from lab tests and diagnostic procedures to plan nursing care, while emphasizing the human side of testing.

Guided by case studies and NCLEX®-style questions, you can practice applying knowledge of tests and diagnoses to varied clinical situations. Throughout the text, examples of patient scenarios with clinical significance provide examples across the lifespan, from newborns to older adults.

The 9th Edition is useful as both a theory text and a quick reference guide. It reflects new evidence-based practice standards. It also introduces new and expanded uses for tests, with a special focus on genetic and rapid tests.
