FREE TRAINING: 3 Mistakes Even Smart NPs Make Interpreting Labs

Anemia Diagnosis: Lab Interpretation for New Grad NPs

Nov 05, 2019

How often do you open your EHR to find lab results that are slightly abnormal, but you're not sure if you need to worry about them?

Lab interpretation for new nurse practitioners can be confusing!

Anemia is a huge topic, but in this case study I'll be walking you through a common pattern of labs that I see all the time in primary care.

In this video you'll learn:

  • The alarm signs of anemia (and the lab values that go with them)
  • When to send someone to hematology
  • The MOST important lab values to look at (and some lesser known ones that can give you a lot of insight)
  • The tests you may want to order to give you more clarity

(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.)

Once you've watched, I'd love to hear from you.

What's one thing you learned from this video about anemia that you can take into your practice as a new grad NP (or soon to be!)?

Leave me a comment below. Be sure to share your thought directly in the comments, no links or videos as they may be removed.

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and I'll see you soon.
