Using a discipline-by-discipline approach, Linne & Ringsrud's Clinical Laboratory Science: Concepts, Procedures, and Clinical Applications, 7th Edition provides a fundamental overview of the skills and techniques you need to work in a clinical laboratory and perform routine clinical lab tests. Coverage of basic laboratory techniques includes key topics such as safety, measurement techniques, and quality assessment. Clear, straightforward instructions simplify lab procedures, and are described in the CLSI (Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute) format. Written by well-known CLS educator Mary Louise Turgeon, this text includes perforated pages so you can easily detach procedure sheets and use them as a reference in the lab! Hands-on procedures guide you through the exact steps you'll perform in the lab. Review questions at the end of each chapter help you assess your understanding and identify areas requiring additional study. A broad scope makes this text an ideal introduction to clinical laboratory science at various levels, including CLS/MT, CLT/MLT, and Medical Assisting, and reflects the taxonomy levels of the CLS/MT and CLT/MLT exams. Detailed full-color illustrations show what you will see under the microscope. An Evolve companion website provides convenient online access to all of the procedures in the text, a glossary, audio glossary, and links to additional information. Case studies include critical thinking and multiple-choice questions, providing the opportunity to apply content to real-life scenarios. Learning objectives help you study more effectively and provide measurable outcomes to achieve by completing the material. Streamlined approach makes it easier to learn the most essential information on individual disciplines in clinical lab science. Experienced author, speaker, and educator Mary Lou Turgeon is well known for providing insight into the rapidly changing field of clinical laboratory science. Convenient glossary makes it easy to look up definitions without having to search through each chapter. NEW! Procedure worksheets have been added to most chapters; perforated pages make it easy for students to remove for use in the lab and for assignment of review questions as homework. NEW! Instrumentation updates show new technology being used in the lab. NEW! Additional key terms in each chapter cover need-to-know terminology. NEW!

This unique collection of 55 multidisciplinary case studies is designed to help laboratory technologists and technicians "experience" how departments work together to help the physician make a diagnosis and determine the best course of treatment for the patient. In working through the comprehensive, real-world scenarios, readers deal firsthand with interpreting data from two, three or four disciplines (Blood Bank, Chemistry, Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology, Urinalysis), integrating the facts (laboratory data) from different departments and thinking critically about what they mean. Includes 55 cases--11 Blood Bank cases; 12 Chemistry cases; 10 Hematology/Coagulation cases; 5 Immunology/Serology cases; 10 Microbiology cases; 7 Urinalysis cases. Technicians and technologists who have been out of the field for awhile and are in the process of reentry into the profession and technicians and technologists who are looking for a general review of clinical laboratory science.

As with the previous four EeeLS Seminars, the contributions to the fifth Seminar in Siena have been collected together for the benefit both of those who were fortunate to be present and those unable to come. This Seminar differed from the others in having a more purely scien tific content; however the contributors also considered the possible need for standardization in the future. The speakers were chosen for their acknowledged expertise in the specific topics. The papers are now presented in the order in which they were given with editorial change only to give consistency of style of presentation. It follows that each paper can stand alone at the expense of a minimum of repetition. Because the topics are in rapidly developing fields of high technology, speed of publication was essential; for help with this, EeeLS thanks the contributors. vii List of Contributors W. H. W.

This innovative textbook and CD-ROM package provides the most interactive case-based learning tool for clinical lab science. Cases are presented in a simulated laboratory setting allowing students to hone their clinical reasoning skills as outlined in the new curriculum guidelines, Body of Knowledge, published by the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science. Each clinical sample includes patient demographic information establishing the case. Students are then asked to perform or interpret laboratory test results or retrieve additional test results to resolve the case – exactly as they would in the clinical laboratory.
