The purpose of this book is to help nurses, midwives and healthprofessionals to better understand how the work of clinicallaboratories contributes to patient care. It answers thefollowing 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 mypatient? Retaining its accessible and user-friendly style, the aim ofthis book remains the same: to provide nurses with as much relevantinformation as possible about the most commonly requestedlaboratory rests. This is not a book about laboratory technique -its focus is on the clinical significance of test results, andtherefore the patient. The third edition is morecomprehensive in terms of the number of testsdiscussed, incorporates colour to aid the accessibility,and includes more paediatric content.
