Summary

The current, concise, and easy-to-read guide to urinalysis and body fluids for all clinical laboratory technology students and professionals.

 

Clinical Laboratory Urinalysis and Body Fluids brings together all the information clinical laboratory technology students need about all aspects of urinalysis and body fluids. Current, concise, and easy to read, it reflects the authors' extensive combined experience in academia, research and the technical areas of a clinical laboratory. Topics covered include: safety, quality, renal anatomy/physiology, pre-analytical urinalysis; urinalysis physical components and chemical examination; microscopy; microscopic urine sediment examination; renal diseases; cerebrospinal, serous, and other body fluids; amniotic fluid and pregnancy testing; metabolic diseases, and fecal analysis. Content is sequenced logically, with boxes, tables, and figures augmenting and supporting each chapter's technical information. Chapter objectives are written at two levels, reflecting laboratory technicians' and technologists' differing scope of practice. Periodic self-assessment "checkpoints" challenge students with timely review questions, and chapter-ending review questions are also presented at two levels, reflecting students' differing backgrounds. Students also gain practical insights through case studies at the beginning of each chapter, and "Mini Case" patient scenarios located throughout.
