Book Description :

Training in clinical chemistry is acquired via different avenues that include didactic lectures on pathophysiology of disease, methodologies and practical aspects of testing, and through attendance of operations meetings, sign-out sessions, seminars and tutorials. There is little instruction on how to apply the vast amount of knowledge gained in the process to practice. In other branches of medicine, cases are regularly presented with clinical information and therapeutic interventions which form the basis of training. Diagnostic Reasoning: Laboratory Based Case Studies in Clinical Chemistry fills this gap for clinical chemistry. The concise and practical approach of the book, including real-life scenarios, is an excellent resource for pathology trainees, clinical laboratory science students, clinical chemistry fellows, clinical laboratory professionals, and clinicians. These cases help professionals remain competent in the field and be successful in their board exams. The cases are stated as they present, often with no or few clinical details accompanying the sample request with only barcoded samples arriving into the laboratory. In a busy laboratory, thousands of these cases are received daily and it is impossible to review the clinical information associated with the specimens. There are no books with a similar approach and emphasis Fills the gap in teaching by addressing the subject from a laboratory practical prospective with concomitant application of evidence-based laboratory investigation Presents laboratory data in tabulated format to resemble real-life scenarios, shows list of abbreviations and conversion factors Cases begin with clinical presentation and information not available to those within the clinical laboratory Discusses the differential diagnosis and suggests additional testing or investigations as necessary

Book Description :

This innovative textbook and CD-ROM package provides the most interactive case-based learning tool for clinical lab science. Cases are presented in a simulated laboratory setting allowing students to hone their clinical reasoning skills as outlined in the new curriculum guidelines, Body of Knowledge, published by the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science. Each clinical sample includes patient demographic information establishing the case. Students are then asked to perform or interpret laboratory test results or retrieve additional test results to resolve the case – exactly as they would in the clinical laboratory.

Book Description :

This case study based workbook provides veterinary students and non-specialist with a guide to effective use and interpretation of clinical chemistry laboratory methods in domestic animals. The 100+ case studies involve real patients and findings in dogs, cats, horses, lamas, alpacas, pot belled pigs and ferrets. These consist of patient history, physical examination findings, and clinicopthologic data such as CBC, urinalysis, cytology or fluid analysis. A summary is given for each patient that includes a description of follow up tests and response to treatment. Multiple cases of common diseases illustrate the variety of clinciopathologic findings with the same diagnosis depending on individual patient factors. Diagnostic dilemmas in which different diseases may present with similar clinical signs and laboratory data are also included. Published by Teton New Media in the USA and distributed by CRC Press outside of North America.

Book Description :

Many texts address the physical examination component of health assessment, but do not cover the diagnostic reasoning process that a health care provider must go through when assessing an actual case. In the Second Edition of Advanced Health Assessment and Diagnostic Reasoning, authors Rhoads and Petersen do just that. By including each step of health assessment, they demonstrate the links between health history and physical examination, and offer the healthcare provider with the essential data needed to formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan. Furthermore, the content in Advanced Health Assessment and Diagnostic Reasoning, Second Edition is accessible and presented in a way that is easy to follow and retain. Key Features & Benefits • Three introductory chapters cover general strategies for health history taking, physical examination, and documentation, and the remaining chapters cover clinical aspects of assessment, and focus on various systemic disorders (e.g., gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal). • Aspects of the health history are presented in two columns. The first column gives the type of information that the provider should obtain, and the second column provides specific questions or information to note and gives examples of what conditions the findings may indicate. • Aspects of the physical examination are presented in two columns. The first column gives the action, and the second column lists normal and abnormal findings, and possible diagnoses associated with those findings. • Every clinical chapter contains a “Differential Diagnosis of Common Disorders” table. This table summarizes significant findings in the history and physical exam and gives pertinent diagnostic tests for common disorders. • Every clinical chapter also includes “Assessment of Special Populations.” This section highlights important information on assessing pregnant, neonatal, pediatric, and geriatric patients. • Case studies are integrated into each chapter. These case studies recount a patient’s history and provide sample documentation of the history and physical examination. The sample documentation familiarizes students with proper and complete documentation and use of forms, and is complete with a final assessment finding or diagnosis.
