The purpose of this book is to help nurses, midwives and healthprofessionals to better understand how the work of clinicallaboratories contributes to patient care. It answers thefollowing questions: Why is this test being ordered on my patient? What sort of sample is required? How is that sample obtained? And most importantly: What is the significance of the test result for mypatient? Retaining its accessible and user-friendly style, the aim ofthis book remains the same: to provide nurses with as much relevantinformation as possible about the most commonly requestedlaboratory rests. This is not a book about laboratory technique -its focus is on the clinical significance of test results, andtherefore the patient. The third edition is morecomprehensive in terms of the number of testsdiscussed, incorporates colour to aid the accessibility,and includes more paediatric content.

"With new material, illustrations and updated chapters, the new edition of this enormously successful book provides guidance on the best use of the many tests and investigations currently available. It emphasizes which tests are of value, when tests are not likely to be helpful, and explains likely pitfalls in the interpretation of results. Throughout, the book emphasises the need to avoid over-investigation." "Starting off with a patient-oriented approach to investigation, the book describes key symptoms and signs, along with tests that may be of value in reaching a diagnosis. The remainder of the book is specialty-centered, and provides a comprehensive review of all available tests within a given subject."--BOOK JACKET.
