The Hidden Assassin: When Clinical Lab Tests Go
Awry is an anthology about ordinary people's encounters with clinical
laboratory testing. Something innocent like a blood glucose test can kill, or
the finding of a chemical in blood can uncover a terrorist plot. Lab tests are
also essential for determining the health of an unborn child. Genetic testing
can now be used to determine if you are predisposed to get cancer or suffer a
fatal side effect to a medication. We can determine if someone has suffered a
heart attack or more importantly predict who will get one in the near future.
The stories are based on true events. Because of patient privacy laws, the names
and places have been changed. Reading this book might help you avoid the bad
outcomes that happened to these people.
