This book helps with labs in the following ways
1) Alphabetical order with any lab you could want listed with normal values and lists of reasons why that value could be elevated or decreased
2) There is a section at the beginning that for some labs lists accompanying or follow-up labs you might consider ordering
I am a physician assistant and the doctor are frequently coming to my office to borrow this book.

I purchased the book because it seemed to offer the detailed relationship between medical/pathology lab tests and the reason they might be ordered. The layout is cumbersome, non intuitive and clearly designed for a mono professional. Credit can be given for the extent of the coverage of tests that the nursing profession might have need to understand.

I continue to find this reference handbook useful, and prefer to have it available for ready consultation in most medical office practice settings.

I've taught nursing for the past 22 years and this is by far the best lab book I've ever used. At first glance it may appear intimidating, but it is very user friendly. The first few pages are medical diagnoses and their common labs with the most critical few astericked. The majority of the text is alphabetized by lab name and includes not only the values, but panic values, highlighted boxes for signs and symptoms of toxicities and treatments for each, and an extensive list of causes for high and low levels. There is much more to this text, but these are the qualities I love most. If you want to prevent patient's problems or at least identify them early, this text is a must and it will make you look like a genius in the process! I won't leave home without it.
