Does anyone know of a good website/resource to find specific laboratory values which are correlated to specific types of pathophysiology? In other words, if a patient has a diagnosis of CHF, diabetes mellitus type II, and renal insufficiency, which lab values would be crucial to look at and assess. Or, if someone has pulmonary patho. going on, which specific values would be important, and why. There's lots of info on lab values, ranges, what is happening if the values are out of range, yet I need to know what specifically to look for, why, and how these values relate to the disease process going on in a patient.???
Any assistance with resources would be greatly appreciated!!!
