Overview

Renowned for its clear writing style, organization, level and depth of content, and excellent color illustrations, this reference 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. It covers all aspects of fluid analysis from basic factual information and essential techniques and procedures, to easy-to-grasp explanations of how data is correlated with the basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology to understand pathologic processes.

• More than 120 photomicrographs are pictured beside their textual explanations to ensure maximum comprehension and understanding.
• Extensive diagrams and tables throughout the text clarify concepts and reinforce content.
• Discussion of each body fluid includes the physiology of formation, its composition, diagnostic importance, and the clinical procedures frequently performed.
• Various pedagogical elements such as chapter outlines, learning objectives, key terms, case studies, and study questions reinforce the most important information in each chapter.
• The chapter on Quality Assurance and Safety (Chapter 2) focuses on the importance of following established lab protocols and guidelines in the clinical lab.
• A glossary of scientific terms appears in the back of the book for convenient reference to succinct, accurate definitions.

• A unique, new chapter on Analysis of Vaginal Secretions covering wet mount preparation, evaluation, and disease correlation.
• A urine sediment image glossary containing over 90 images that serves as a visual reference for identifying cells, crystals, casts, and other elements at the microscope. In addition, these images are almost exclusively of unstained sediment using Brightfield microscopy — the technique most frequently used in clinical laboratories.
• Case studies at the end of relevant chapters to assist in applying key concepts to real-life scenarios and test reader knowledge.

This book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

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.
