It is targeted for practicing nurses and other healthcare professionals and faculty and students within these fields. This book is appropriate for primary, acute, and restorative healthcare settings. Positive features include the alphabetical listing of the tests and the well-done index. Each test is presented in a concise, consistent, and logical format. Mosby’s Manual of Diagnostic and Laboratory Tests includes the normal findings, test explanation and related physiology, interfering factors, procedure and patient care (before, during, and after the test), and abnormal findings.
