Overview

Renowned for its clear writing style, logical organization, level and depth of content, and excellent color illustrations, Fundamentals of Urine & Body Fluid Analysis, 3rd Edition covers the collection and analysis of urine, fecal specimens, vaginal secretions, and other body fluids such as cerebrospinal, synovial, seminal, amniotic, pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal fluids. Expert author Nancy Brunzel shares her extensive knowledge and expertise in the field, presenting key information and essential techniques and procedures, as well as easy-to-grasp explanations of how to correlate data with basic anatomy and physiology to understand pathological processes.

Vaginal Fluid Analysis chapter covers vaginal wet preps, a topic not found in many other references.
Case studies help you understand how key concepts apply to real-world practice.
Full-color images and photomicrographs show you what you should see under the microscope.
An image glossary presents 94 additional images to help you identify rare and common cells.
Multiple-choice questions at the end of every chapter allow you to test your understanding of the material.
A glossary at the end of the book offers quick access to key terms and definitions.

Editorial Reviews

Stephen E. Kahn
This soft-covered book covers the basic principles of urine and body fluid analysis. This text uses a format best suited for any educational program of clinical laboratory science. The purpose is to illustrate fundamental principles of urine and body fluid analysis in a format suitable for all students of clinical laboratory science. The text is aimed at students of clinical laboratory science from the undergraduate medical technology student to graduate level medical and nursing students. The postgraduate fellow or resident with an interest in clinical laboratory science would also find the book applicable. This text includes appropriate illustrations of good quality, particularly high-quality color micrographs, which is imperative for the subject material. The study review questions for each chapter make the text best suited for educational programs. The last chapter, with more than two dozen cases, and the appendixes are worthwhile features of the text. This book is a very good fundamental text for illustration of basic principles of urine and body fluid analysis. The illustrations, micrographs, chapter formats, appendixes, and the final chapter devoted to clinical cases all make this text a very good addition to the field. Included are practical chapters on the care and operation of the microscope as well as chapters on relevant safety and quality assurance principles. This text is highly recommended for undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate educational programs in clinical science.
