9780470659519: Understanding Laboratory Investigations: A Guide for Nurses, Midwives and Health Professionals

The purpose of this book is to help nurses, midwives and health professionals to better understand how the work of clinical laboratories contributes to patient care.  It answers the following 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 my patient?

Retaining its accessible and user-friendly style, the aim of this book remains the same: to provide nurses with as much relevant information as possible about the most commonly requested laboratory rests. This is not a book about laboratory technique - its focus is on the clinical significance of test results, and therefore the patient.  The third edition is more comprehensive in terms of the number of tests discussed, incorporates colour to aid the accessibility, and includes more paediatric content.

Review:

Reviews of previous editions:

"This is a really useful book for midwives. I expected it to be a textbook which I could recommend to students—and indeed that is true. However, when I picked this up I realised how useful it can be qualified staff, no matter how familiar the topics may be to those in practice ... . I would recommend this for any team or ward reference library." (Practising Midwife, January 2009)

"If you have not come across this book before then I would certainly recommend this new improved edition." (Heather Jarman in Accident and Emergency Nursing, Volume 15, 2007)
