Look in the appendix of any med-surg or fundamentals book and you're sure to find a list of lab values.

This should help:

Just remembered a page that I helped create when I was studying for my ATI finals. The word document is attached.

I never used the "client value" columns but rather folded the page over to hide the reference values for quizzing myself.

Remember, there are no *absolutes.* Every lab has their own reference values so don't be tempted to answer an NCLEX question based on a 5-10% deviation from these *normal* values.

Lab Values.doc

studystack.com is a good site if you wana flash card style review.
