In my opinion, knowing the following lab values will help you because I've encountered them the most while doing questions -

- electrolytes (Na, Cl, K, HCO3)
- ABGs (pH, Po2, Pco2)
- Hematocrit, Hemoglobin, Leukocyte & Platelet count
- Know that Cl sweat test value above 60 = Cystic Fibrosis

Other than that you might want to know the PT, PTT etc but those aren't encountered as much I think.
