This is a great resource put together by the Acute Care Section. Many important decisions about your treatments in acute care are based on patient lab values. This document explains each lab value and why you should care about it. There are a lot of suggested readings within this document that complete the knowledge base to make it a great tool to brush up on your "to treat or not to treat" decision making.
