I need a a good reference website. Help!

  1. I'm a recent grad working in critical care, and I am looking for a website that has reference ranges for some common lab tests, as well as normal values for cardiac pressure monitoring (PAP, SVR, EDVI, etc.). I am in the process of putting together a reference sheet to use when I'm having a brain fart! Any sites you can direct me to would be great. Thanks

    http://www.labtestsonline.org/ -- this site has been designed as a single resource where people can find up-to-date lab testing information vital to the understanding and management of their health, or the health of someone close to them. it includes test descriptions, conditions, screening guide and current news. when looking up disease conditions, the lab tests typically ordered for them are listed with links to explanations about them. make sure to check out their site map for more information about lab services.

    http://labtestsonline.org/understand...ases/test.html - an explanation of blood gasses - there are links within the text that you should check out as well

    i don't have any links for the other stuff. you might try doing a search for "hemodynamic monitoring" to see what you net.
