Product Description


...the perfect practical protocol companion for clinical research scientists. (Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices)

This book would appeal to virtually anyone early in his/her medical career - medical students, interns, residents, and junior attendings. It would also appeal to anyone in the allied health sciences whose daily work involves the various tests discussed, or anyone in the field of healthcare who is interested in why certain tests are done for which diseases. ... I found this book to be very useful firsthand when asked to consult on which laboratory test(s) were needed to evaluate a patient with hypernatremia. Sure enough, I turned to the endocrinology section, found the appropriate text, and read off the correct tests to order; all the while sounding like a competent clinical pathologist. This experience highlights the easy accessibility of information and overall clinical usefulness of this book. (Doody's Journal)

Found this book very dull and uninspiring and not anywhere near as useful as other books in the Oxford handbook series.

Understanding Laboratory Investigations: For Nurses and Health Professionals covers all of the basics and is much more readable and I'd recommend to medical students, especially those in the early clinical years.
