I keep a clipboard with me at work, with my “brain,” frequently used phone numbers, a few checklists for things like new admissions, discharges, and so on, and my handy-dandy lab interpretation sheet. A clinical instructor gave me something like this years ago, and I’ve edited it over the years to make it more helpful to me. It includes the normal values, a brief description, and – most important – what would cause those numbers to go up or down. So, for your clinical pleasure, feel free to download below.
