Summary

LABORATORY TESTS AND DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES WITH NURSING DIAGNOSES, 8/e is the complete nurse's guide to using data from today's laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures to formulate, organize, and plan high-quality nursing care. This edition has been extensively updated to reflect the latest standards of care and the shift towards evidence-based practice, and to illuminate links between the nursing process and testing even more effectively. It introduces dozens of new tests and procedures, and offers updated information on many more, including expanded uses for many proven tests. Several new genetic tests are covered, as well as many rapid tests now available for point-of-care testing by nurses.
