Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data, 6th Edition (May 2017 Release)

 Laboratory Medicine  Comments Off on Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data, 6th Edition (May 2017 Release)
Jun 152018
 

Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data continues to be the most popular teaching text on laboratory data for pharmacy students as well as the go-to reference for pharmacists in therapeutic practice. Now in its sixth edition, it has been expanded and updated to cover new drugs, research, and therapeutic approaches. The sixth edition is a comprehensive, in-depth guide to all aspects of lab work that apply to clinical practice. Written by 40 established clinicians and pharmacy faculty members and reviewed by additional experts, it is designed to make all information clear and quickly accessible. Minicases provide clinical scenarios for using tests and managing patients, and quickview charts throughout offer clear interpretations of lab results. New to this edition:* A new chapter on point-of-care testing.* New materials on male infertility workups.* Data on pharmacogenomics testing for neuropsychiatric drugs.* At least one new case and new learning points for almost all chapters.* New discussions in many chapters, including for C-reactive protein, antiglycan antibody and lactoferrin, antithroglobulin antibody, and cryoglobulin, and more.* 23 chapters are now divided into three sections: Basic Concepts and Test Interpretations, System Disorders and Diagnostic Tests, and Tests for Special Populations. Complex but critical skills are required for clinical pharmacists to effectively use lab data in screening for or diagnosing diseases and in monitoring the safety and effectiveness of treatment. As the only book of its kind specifically written for pharmacists by pharmacists, Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data makes it easier to make accurate and critical decisions based on laboratory data.

Important Correction Notice

The publishers wish to inform you of a correction in Chapter 6, page 110.

On page 110, Chapter 6, Interpretation of Serum Drug Concentrations, the equation before the heading “Valproic Acid” in the right column should appear as:

normalized PHT concentration = measured PHT concentration
+ (0.01 x VPA concentration x measured PHT concentration)

In the published book, the equation has boxes where multiplication symbols should appear.
