Laboratory Tests and Diagnostic Procedures with Nursing Diagnoses (6th Edition)



B> Written by a highly respected author in the lab and diagnostic test field, this comprehensive resource explains in detail the clinical significance of tests and diagnostic procedures. It focuses on the human element in the nurse's role in relation to diagnostic testing--e.g., health teaching, client preparation, and assessment for adverse reactions to diagnostic procedures--and on the independent role of the nurse. Related tests or procedures are grouped to highlight common nursing diagnoses. The book includes the pathophysiologic conditions that cause altered laboratory values; implications of high and low test results; current NANDA nursing diagnoses, with specific nursing interventions for each test and procedure; medical diagnoses and medical interventions, and how they differ from nursing diagnoses and nursing interventions; and extensive references, with a strong focus on current nursing literature that emphasizes research. A wide range of examples includes all age groups (newborn to the aged) from a variety of practice settings, and case studies give readers an opportunity to practice interpreting lab data to formulate nursing diagnoses. to Childbearing Years. Ideal as a review for Nurses who want to update their knowledge in specific areas, and for Nurses in clinical settings who want a quick reference.
