The new edition of the best-selling Lecture Notes title is a concise
introduction to clinical biochemistry that presents the fundamental science
underpinning common biochemical investigations used in clinical practice.
Lecture Notes: Clinical Biochemistry allows the reader to make
efficient and informed use of the diagnostic services offered by their clinical
biochemistry department. The result is a text that serves as a reference to the
practitioner as well as the student. The book takes a system-based approach,
with the underlying physiological rationale for any test explained in the
context of disruption by disease. This leads naturally to an integrated and
practical understanding of biochemical diagnostics. Including multiple choice
questions alongside end-of-chapter case studies to help develop test-selection
skills, Lecture Notes: Clinical Biochemistry provides the essential
background to biochemical investigations and is an ideal course companion and
revision guide for medical students, junior doctors, general practitioners,
nurses, and laboratory technicians.
