Test Interpretation

Expectations

For each of your patients:

  • Provide 1-2 reasons for each significantly abnormal blood chemistry (CBC, CMP, cardiac markers, ABG)
  • Interpret the ECG before reading the interpretation
  • Interpret the CXR before reading the radiology report

We have provided  links to many very high-quality, interactive web sites that focus on interpretation of various types of common studies (e.g. ECG, CXR, PFT, ABG, U/A). You are encouraged to use these for skills practice on your own or in small groups
