Scheduled downtime: Nursing Consult

 

 

Mosby's Nursing Consult Logo

Mosby’s Nursing Consult is launching two new content areas in the Calculators & Tools section. As a result, the web site will undergo maintenance on Sunday, August 18 2013 from 11:00 pm to 5:00 am MST. During this time, the site will be unavailable.

Details on the enhancements: 

Labs & Diagnostics

  • Labs & Diagnostics lets nurses quickly see the major nursing implications of abnormal values for common labs.
  • Lab values are from Chernecky, Laboratory Tests and Diagnostic Procedures (6th ed.) (2012: St. Louis, Elsevier Saunders).
  • Each page contains:
      • Normal lab values including SI units when applicable
      • Nursing Implications of abnormal values
      • Measurement considerations

Scales

  • Scales helps nurses assess patients and improve patient outcomes by providing a dedicated area to commonly used scales.
  • Each page contains:
    • Scale name
    • Link to the full scale
      • In a book on MNC
      • On an association’s or professional organization’s website
      • As a PDF
    • Brief description of the scale
    • Full reference information

These areas, like all of Mosby’s Nursing Consult, are reviewed and will be updated as nursing evidence and practice evolve.
