Phlebotomy Fundamentals Book Excerpt:

The purpose of this book is to help you learn proper phlebotomy and EKG procedures and understand the whys of phlebotomy procedures. Many times, as a patient, I have observed phlebotomy techniques, and I would ask the phlebotomist, “What is the reason for drawing the tubes in that order?” I would get either no reply or “I’m not sure.” Now don’t get me wrong. I have met many technicians who have great skills, but some cannot explain the most important question—why? If you were asked to eat fish once a week, and you ask why, and the only answer you get is because it’s good for you, well, I’m sorry but where is the why? In the same vein here, why do you draw the tubes in a certain order? When using my book, you will also be able to link onto my website as an interactive guide. So what are we waiting for? Let’s begin.

Accurate Results in the Clinical Laboratory Book Excerpt:

This practical, easy-to-use guide, named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, addresses interference issues in all laboratory tests, including patient epigenetics, process of specimen collection, enzymes, biomarkers. Clinicians and laboratory scientists can therefore rely on one reference which speaks to both their needs of accurate specimen analysis and optimal patient care. Erroneous hospital and pathology laboratory results can be confusing and problematic, especially in acute care situations. While some factors creating interference, can be identified in the laboratory, detecting many others is often dependent on clinical details unavailable to the laboratory scientists or pathologists. Therefore, clinicians must become proficient in identifying such erroneous reports, and working with pathologists and laboratory scientists so that they can understand the source of such interferences, correct the results, and then decide what course of action must be followed for proper patient management. Named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, a collection development tool for health sciences libraries of all sizes, by Doody Enterprises Practical information for both clinicians and laboratory scientists, presented in the form of tables and charts for easy reference Focus on range and sources of interferences rather than details of toxicologic mechanisms which are well covered in toxicology textbooks Covers interferences across endocrine, oncology, hematology, immunohistochemistry, immunology, serology, microbiology, and molecular testing
