Designed for quick reference, this full-color handbook provides succinct, bulleted information on over 300 of the leading laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures. Entries are arranged alphabetically and follow a consistent format: purpose of the test, patient preparation, procedure steps, post-test care, precautions, normal findings or reference values (including SI values), abnormal findings and clinical implications, and factors affecting the accuracy of results. Recurring icons highlight possible post-test complications and pediatric and geriatric considerations.
