\usepackage[final]{pdfpages}

in the preamble and in the body of your document:

\includepdf[pages={19}]{<your_pdf_file.pdf>}

The pages option is a comma separated and/or hyphen separated range of
pages.

Run pdfLaTeX and you get a pdf with page number 19 of the document you
needed to have.

You can also use pdfpages to merge two pdf documents. You may not have
pdfpages.sty in your TeX system by default, grab it from CTAN.

Best.
