Summary

Summary

The highly successful first edition of MOSBY'S MANUAL OF LABORATORY AND DIAGNOSTIC TESTS received rave reviews for itsfull-color design and illustrations, user-friendly organization and format,comprehensiveness, and readability. THE MANUAL is a complete resource for nurses and other health professionals in either academic or clinical settings. It is the first and only full-color lab test book available and is liberally illustrated with color photos and drawings that show exactly how various tests are performed. Virtually every clinically significant test is covered, including the latest tests for allergy blood testing, atrial natriuretic factor, homocysteine, N-telopeptide, and troponins. Patient teaching priorities are now noted with a special icon, and a dozen additional Home Care Responsibilities boxes have been added to support the increasing emphasis on early discharge and outpatient testing.
