Trainees will benefit from hundreds of EEG figures, helping them spot abnormalities and identify the pattern name. Experienced neurologists will find the book excellent as a quick reference and when trying to distinguish a finding from similarly appearing patterns.to recognize a technical artifact.
This book was written after feedback suggested that stories and analogies were very helpful to students wanting to remember blood tests and their implications. For this reason each section, where appropriate, contains an analogy, in addition to an overview of the relevant anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. This book links tests and conditions, and gives strategies for clinical practice using simple language.
Coagulation Disorders is focused pocket-sized handbook designed for clinical pathologists, lab managers, medical technologists, and residents intended to help them avoid these commonly seen errors. Utilizing a case-based approach each chapter features a concise overview of a major diagnosis, an illustrative case, and then a standards assessment which discusses the relevant evidence, guidelines, and any other standards or regulations pertinent to the problem.
Many books on ECG interpretation use simulated ECG tracings. Most of the traces that you find in this book are from real people and of the quality that you will be expected to interpret from in practice. These are two new chapters in this third edition that add greatly to the usefulness of the book.
The "Diagnostic Standards of Care" series presents common errors associated with diagnoses in clinical pathology, using case examples to illustrate effective analysis based on current evidence and standards. Each volume demonstrates the use of quality assurance and the role of the pathologist in ensuring quality and patient safety.
Inaccuracy due to poor standardization and the presence of interfering substances in biological samples is still a serious and life-threatening issue. Deep knowledge of basic principles of immunochemical methods, sources of analyte-independent interferences and analyte-dependent interferences are very important to understand, detect, reduce and/or eliminate the interferences. This book helps to reduce false results, improve patient's care and patient's safety.
Clear illustrations, clinical examples, and case studies help you quickly learn how identify and interpret hypertrophy and enlargement, arrhythmia's, conduction blocks, pre-excitation syndromes, myocardial infarction, and more.
The Oxford Handbook of Cardiology provides a comprehensive but concise guide to all modern cardiological practice with an emphasis on practical clinical management in many different contexts. This second edition addresses all the key advances made in the field since the previous edition, including interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and pharmacology.
A Davis's Notes book! This pocket-sized reference provides quick access to important phlebotomy information. Clinically focused, it's the perfect guide to collecting, transporting, and processing quality blood specimens for laboratory testing. The write-on/wipe-off pages feature a dedicated space where you can fill in the specific requirements for evacuated tubes, instrumentation, and analytical procedures for two different locations.
The purpose of this book is to shift the focus firmly back onto good recording technique as the fundamental starting point for developing ECG competency. Although the chapters are self-contained, pedagogical aids provide an opportunity to deepen learning through the integration of accumulated skills and knowledge. Each chapter contains review and comprehension questions.
Now in its third edition, this essential handbook for nurses and allied health professionals gives clear, simple explanations of blood results, focusing on routinely requested investigations. There have been many changes since the second edition - from alterations in unites (such as g/L for hemoglobin, rather than g/dL) to the merging of hematology with biochemistry, blood transfusion and immunology to form blood science. Accordingly, in this new edition there are more details of immunology, immunological diseases and blood tests involved.
