Lab Value Interpretation and Hematologic Disorders – Med-Surg Nursing

by Rhonda Lawes, PhD, RN, Paula Ruedebusch

There are dozens of labs that nurses should be familiar with regardless of the clinical setting. Laboratory values help paint a picture of what’s happening in the patient’s body, how the organ systems are (or aren’t) compensating, and what imbalances are present.

In this course, we’ll discuss some of the most foundational and common laboratory values, including the CBC, blood gasses, renal function studies, urine analysis, and cardiac lab values.

Well explained theory regarding the importance of protein indicators in urine testing
By Michael B. on 11. February 2024 for Introduction to Urine Protein Test (Nursing)

This lecture helped me to consider more in-depth the connection between diabetes, albuminura and the effect of diabetes on the kidneys. It will help to give me more of a stronger foundation with other areas of study later. Would recommend the Urinalysis series of videos.

Another excellent lecture on reading test results.
