Nurse’s 5-Minute Clinical Consult: Diagnostic Tests (The 5-Minute Consult Series) 1st Edition

by Springhouse (Author)

Nurse’s 5-Minute Clinical Consult: Diagnostic Tests covers over 500 diagnostic studies—from arthrocentesis to zinc blood levels—with step-by-step procedure guidelines, normal findings, and abnormal results in a quick-scanning format. Tests are arranged alphabetically, and each is presented on one page with consistent headings, including description, purpose, patient preparation, teaching points, key steps, postprocedure care, precautions, complications, normal findings, and abnormal results.

Recurring icons highlight warnings and interfering factors. Illustrated, reproducible patient-teaching aids are included where appropriate. Hundreds of illustrations, photos, charts, and tables complement the text.
