Description - Understanding Laboratory Investigations by Chris Higgins

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

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.
