    "The acclaimed full-color guide to selecting the correct laboratory test and interpreting the results covering ALL of clinical pathology Laboratory Medicine is the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and well-illustrated guide available for learning how to order the correct laboratory test and understand the clinical significance of the results. The book features an easy-to-follow, consistent presentation for each disease discussed. Chapters begin with a brief description of the disorder followed by a discussion that includes tables detailing the laboratory evaluation of specific disorders, diagnosis, baseline tests to exclude diagnostic possibilities, and clinical indications that warrant further screening and special testing. With new, increasingly expensive and complicated tests appearing almost daily, Laboratory Medicine, Third Edition is required reading for medical students, clinical laboratory scientists, and healthcare professionals who want to keep abreast of the latest testing procedures and maximize accuracy and patient safety. Features: 48 clinical laboratory methods presented in easy-to-understand illustrations that include information on the expense and complexity of the assays More than 200 tables and full-color algorithms that encapsulate important information and facilitate understanding Full-color blood-smear micrographs that demonstrate common abnormal morphologies of red blood cells Valuable learning aids in each chapter, including learning objectives, chapter outlines, and a general introduction -- and new to this edition: chapter-ending self-assessment Q&A.

  • Charles C. Tseng, Xiaoli Yang.
    Learning Basic Genetics with Interactive Computer Programs is a comprehensive and interactive learning program that focuses on chromosome simulation and model building. It is intended to assist students in learning more about genetics with ease. The 11 modules of this program form an integrated system for learning the basic concepts of genetics. The program innovation lies in its unique content design that incorporates cognitive feedback and experiential learning through the novel use of interactive applications. Each of the modules is designed to enhance learning by simultaneously employing "eyes-on," "minds-on," and "hands-on" activities. Topics are motivated by questions, information is presented in simple terms, and concepts are clarified by interactive prompts. Used as a supplement to traditional lectures and textbook assignments, the program not only serves as a foundation upon which to build more complex and detailed topics, but as a tutor to clarify and guide when there is confusion. The software that accompanies this book has been shown to be an ideal tool for learning about genetics, which requires a combination of understanding, conceptualization, and practical experience.

    This textbook presents hands-on training material for medical students. The style reflects the need for practice-based teaching with a modern edge in daily clinical routine; accordingly, it also employs online material and pocket cards. Each chapter begins with specific learning objectives, which are cross-referenced with the European curriculum for undergraduate medical education released by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) together with the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS), as well as the minimum geriatric competences for medical students established by the American Geriatrics Society (AGS). World-renowned European experts in practicing and teaching the interdisciplinary field of Geriatrics contributed to this work, with the aim of offering the new generation of health professionals a global perspective on one of the greatest public health challenges of our time: the management of the steadily increasing number of older, multimorbid, and vulnerable persons. The major strength of this book - published under the auspices of the EUGMS - is its pragmatic, goal-oriented approach, which makes it suitable for bedside learning and patient-centered medicine; further, all of the chapters are firmly based on the pillars of the ageing process in all of its biological aspects, helping readers understand the pathophysiology of and rationale behind interventions for the main geriatric syndromes and disorders.

    "Lippincott Certification Review: Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner is the ideal companion while preparing for the Acute Care CPNP(r) exam administered by the Pediatric Nursing Certification Review Board, or for anyone who seeks to perform at a higher level of practice for children who are acutely, chronically, and critically ill. The AC PNP (Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner) program is designed to prepare experienced pediatric nurses to meet the specialized physiologic and psychological needs of infants, children, adolescents and young adults with complex acute, critical and chronic health conditions. The focus of AC PNP care includes complex monitoring and ongoing management of intensive therapies in a variety of settings, including but not limited to, inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, emergency departments and home care settings. Specialty areas of practice are varied and continue to emerge. AC PNPs collaborate with an interprofessional team to provide optimal patient care. The Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner: Acute Care (CPNP-AC) certification exam was developed by the Pediatric Nursing Certification board nearly 10 years ago. Since that time, there has not been a review book specific to this exam, and students have been seeking preparation materials for the exam. For the (approximately) 26 programs in the United States offered to complete pediatric certification, this book is the only available certification review material for the exam. Organized in a simple, bulleted format, this invaluable resource includes multiple choice self-assessment questions with rationales at the end of every chapter, plus two self-assessment exams with rationales - totaling more than 750 questions. Content focuses on the diagnosis and management of pediatric acute care problems typically treated in the emergency department or an inpatient setting._ Certification must be renewed every five years._"-- Provided by publisher.
