Featuring additional tests, updated reference values, and coverage of the latest advances in CT scans, nuclear scans, and genetics, this edition maintains the organization and coverage that have made it the ideal reference and point-of-care guide for educational and practice settings.

This Ninth Edition is accompanied by a complete online teaching and learning package that includes case studies for application, a wide range of in-class activities and assignments, and Blackboard and WebCT cartridges for course management.

  • Learn vital information to keep in mind when implementing tests with “Clinical Alerts” that highlight critical safety information.
  • Easily find the test you’re looking for even if you don’t know the exact name with a presentation that supports the way a nurse thinks.
  • Master key information with helpful tips, inclusion of both conventional and SI units, and coverage of clinical implications for increased and decreased values.
