Blood Lab. Values

Happy Saturday everyone.
Hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada. To everyone exposed to Hurricane Matthew, I hope you are safe.

I wanted to remind myself of a normal blood lab value, and my Google search lead me to this useful document from Fraser Health 2011 (Anita Dickson, LPN, PID) :
http://lpnabc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/004-LabsDiagnosticsManual-1-hour.pdf
The mentioned document has three different categories of Chemistry , Hematology and Urine Tests.  For each test, the author has included Normal Findings, Indications, Test Explanation, Interfering Factors, and Test Results and Clinical Significance (i.e. Causes of increased/decreased levels).

(For EDUCATIONAL purposes. If you plan to use this resource for your clinical practice, I STRONGLY recommend double checking the accepted values with your facility guidelines.)
