A Guide to Laboratory Investigations, 6th Edition
Author(s): Michael F. McGhee
This concise, highly practical guide to the interpretation of normal and abnormal laboratory results is now fully revised and expanded, with updates on established and familiar tests, as well as interpretations on recent developments.
With increasing responsibility being placed on primary care, this new edition presents guidelines on specific clinical conditions such as heart failure, management of female infertility, specific lipid monitoring in diabetes and guidance for monitoring renal failure. It also includes suggestions for appropriate laboratory tests in certain clinical situations, for example: dementia screen, screening tests when a patient presents with a neuropathy, and appropriate tests for patients presenting with hypertension, chronic fatigue syndrome, erectile dysfunction and gynaecomastia. Completely up-to-date, A Guide to Laboratory Investigations, Sixth Edition remains an essential reference for all healthcare professionals.
"Probably one of the most useful books I have ever bought. Answers all those questions when, as a GP, you are faced with an obscure test result that you are not sure what to do with"
