This audio CD is a reference library of 46
heart and lung sounds. There is a brief
verbal description before each sound
is presented. Normal heart and lung
sounds are included, as well as the more
common abnormal sounds encountered
in clinical practice. You can test your skills on the
unidentified sounds at the end of the CD, for which an
answer key is included.
Laboratory tests are an indispensable
part of the array of clinical tools.
It’s essential that all health care
professionals understand why specific
tests have been ordered and what the
results might implicate. This reference
book provides both the “need to
know” information, as well as the more
in-depth “nice to know” details relevant to your patient's
lab results. Inside this text you will find summaries, up-todate references and pertinent case studies. You will better
understand how your response to these lab clues really can
improve the care provided to your patients!
