Editorial Reviews

"Unique features of this book include the emphasis on evidence for practice, interpretation of abnormal results, the influencing factors that might skew the results, and nursing interventions pre- and post-test. The appendixes are a wonderful addition, setting it apart from other books. Here the reader will find common tests; physiology of the endocrine system and how its function may influence test results; patient safety and how to communicate test results; health professional safety while conducting or assisting with tests; and evidence-based practice and how that process is applied in clinical situations....This book is a nice addition and fresh look at an old subject."--Doody's Review Service
