Lecture Notes: Clinical Biochemistry presents the fundamental science underpinning common chemical investigations used in clinical practice. It takes a practically relevant approach that enables medical students and junior doctors to:



  • Understand the value and limitations of chemical investigations
  • Develop the skill to select appropriate investigations for diagnosis and management
  • Interpret investigations correctly
  • Develop a critical approach to diagnostic investigations


Lecture Notes: Clinical Biochemistry takes a system-based approach. The underlying physiological rationale for any test is explained in the context of disruption by disease. This leads naturally to an integrated and practical understanding of chemical diagnostics.


Case studies at the end of each chapter provide a clinical setting to help develop test-selection skills.


Lecture Notes: Clinical Biochemistry provides the essential background to chemical investigations for medical students, junior doctors on foundation programmes, and nurses and practitioners involved in requesting or providing diagnostic service.

Review:

"This book is really rather good and proves to be an invaluable study tool. One quick dip into the edition to check a fact left me engrossed, reading avidly, and wanting more...Clinical Biochemistry is divided into clinically realted chapters, ecah beginning with a review of the relevant medical concepts. Appropriate tests are described, and each section ends with a key points box. Extra marks are awarded to the authors for putting each topic into a clinical context with case studies. Essential reading for all medical students." Sharp, St George's Union Magazine
