Need lab values software

  1. What software is everyone using for lab values reference?

    Labs are something i struggle with and was wanting something for my pda that gives the normal/abnormal ranges and interpretations. I usually buy from skyscape, but purchasing elsewhere is ok too.

    Anyone have something they'd recommend?

    I have software I got from AACN. I like it and it was only $7. I think you might have to be an AACN member though. They do have student membership which is much cheaper. I have found the journals you get with joining to be useful during school.

    Mine is from AACN too. I quite like it; it gives values in both SI units and the US standard, which is very helpful for us here in Canada. It doesn't have too much in the way of the whys and wherefores though.

    I use the epocrates lab values (60 day trial) for now, but I think that I will buy it when it expires. It has values, associated tests, diagnoses, etc....

    Davis' Comprehensive Labratory and Diagnostic Tests with Nursing Implications is really great. If you're looking to save a few bucks you could always get Lab Notes for PDA; it's about $25.00 I used to have Bakerman's ABC's of Lab. Data, but it wasn't nursing focused and didn't have as much information on each lab as the other programs, but did have a lot more obscure lab data that I would never ever need.
