Description


Ideal for instruction in nursing, health information, medical assisting, medical transcription or health unit coordinator programs, this book contains numerous end-of-chapter exercises and case studies to challenge the learner. The most commonly ordered tests are covered, complete with an accurate description of the name and type of test, how the test is performed, indications and contraindications for the test, and most importantly the purpose or diagnostic significance of the test. When appropriate, tests are linked to diagnoses or problems. Many lab books on the market are geared solely for the nurse or technician who must perform the test whereas this book is an excellent resource for any allied health professional who needs a basic understanding of commonly ordered laboratory and diagnostic tests.
