Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf
In everyday clinical practice, physicians cope with all kinds of problems while establishing the precise diagnosis and adequate treatment.The Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf book gives quick, pertinent information about parameters, tests, and their purposes, clinical conditions associated with disease and drugs related to abnormal test results.
The author offers this Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf book to medical doctors in most areas, to laboratory medicine, pathology, dentistry, laboratory technology, biochemistry, pharmacy staffs as well as to medical and nursing students. Its unique, easy to use and easy-to-understand format has been developed to provide help in undergraduate and postgraduate studies, in the laboratory and clinical practice, in emergency rooms and within the field of diagnosis/differential diagnosis.
Some of the clinical-biochemical laboratory parameters presented in the book enhance the value of the book because they might still be more common in basic research and not yet in current use.Parameters which are also employed by clinical biochemistry departments are included because of apparatus availability, work organization or other reasons, although they do not fall directly within their competency.
The Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf book fully considers the wide range experience of medical doctors. The introductory chapter of the book deals with technical and organizational questions that are connected with clinical-biochemical diagnosis and introduces laboratory medicine.
The second part provides alphabetically ordered passwords of more than 850 biochemical! laboratory parameters and laboratory tests in 17 biological materials. Each password definition starts with brief clinical, biochemical, and physiological characteristics, test purposes followed by pathological units or other conditions that are accompanied by increased or decreased levels of biochemical laboratory parameters in question.
Medicamentous interfering factors are also noted. Mentioned are not only “direct” parameters, but also ”borderline” and derived items. In spite of the enormously varied medical terminology, the authors utilized more uniform versions.
The final part of the Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf book provides a summary of the international reference values of clinical biochemical/laboratory parameters in biological samples/materials. Reference values may differ among institutions. Values mentioned are guidelines and users should check with their institution the laboratory policies and reference values for the tests. The book uses Systeme International (SI) units, a table to convert SI units into conventional units is included.
The book comprises a detailed parameter register, synonymous terms/names, dictionary terminology and a list of most abbreviations currently in use. The Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf book does not provide special technical issues and directions, selected referral laboratory, bibliographic references for individual tests. Most of the data are not original but have been adopted from hundreds of regional and literature sources worldwide over the years.
The innovative concept, the contents as well as the structure and format of the book resulted from the needs and requirements of medical practice. The Differential Diagnosis by Laboratory Medicine pdf book was written to intermediate and improve the laboratory-clinical linkage by making it simpler for both sides to select and interpret the biochemical/laboratory tests and parameters.
