K+, Ca, pH, huh?: Lab Values for EMS Providers-Stephanie Louka
We are often called to a facility to transport a patient to the hospital due to an abnormal lab value.

We'll cover the basics of common labs and panels (BMP, CBC, cardiac enzymes, ABG) and identify when to be concerned for possible patient deterioration.
