    Davis's Comprehensive Manual of Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests With Nursing Implications

    Davis's Comprehensive Manual of Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests With Nursing Implications

    Best money I have spent in a LONG time. "I'm a nursing student and part of our clinical rotation was to write down our patient's lab results and note on any abnormals why they were abnormal for my particular patient. This book lists out not just the normal levels, but what conditions can contribute to the high or low values. Sometimes it's pages and pages of possible reasons. This baby is a fantastic time saver for me."--Online Reviewer

    Great for nursing school, you will use it constantly. "Best nursing lab book I've encountered. Definitely worth the money."--Online Reviewer

    Accuracy. "Very useful in clinical settings. Easy to read! Love this book!"--Katrina, Online Reviewer
