  3. Fundamentals of Urine and Body Fluid Analysis 3rd Edition Ebook


This book is designed as a teaching and reference text
for the analysis of urine and body fluids. The intended
audience is students in clinical/medical laboratory science
programs and practicing laboratory professionals.
However, other health care professionals—physicians,
physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses—
can also benefit from the information provided.
As with previous editions, the task of achieving a
balance in depth and breadth of content to meet all needs
is challenging. I believe that to gain a true understanding
of a subject requires more than the mere memorization
of facts. Therefore, a guiding principle in the format and
writing of this book was to present comprehensive information
in a manner that arouses interest, enhances learning,
and facilitates understanding and mastery of the
content. Although the content is comprehensive and
detailed, educators can easily adapt it to the level of
content desired.

The organization is similar to previous editions, with a
couple of minor changes: the Urine Sediment Image
Gallery has been centralized for easy access and two
new chapters are present. As in previous editions, the
first two chapters cover general topics that are important
in laboratories that perform urine and body fluid analyses,
namely microscopy, quality assurance, and safety.
Chapter 1 describes various types of microscopy, proper
microscope handling and care, including important do’s
and don’ts, as well as step-by-step instructions for properly
adjusting a binocular microscope for optimal viewing
(i.e., Kohler illumination). Chapter 2 reviews quality
assurance and safety concerns that apply to laboratories
that perform urine and body fluid analyses.
Chapters 3 through 9 focus on the study of urine—
preanalytical considerations, analysis, and the role urinalysis
plays in the diagnosis and monitoring of disorders.
Chapter 3 provides a thorough discussion of urine specimen
collection, handling, and preservation; chapters 4
and 5 review the anatomy and physiology of the urinary
system. Together, these chapters set the stage for an indepth
discussion of the three components of a complete
urinalysis, namely the physical examination (Chapter 6),
chemical examination (Chapter 7), and microscopic
examination (Chapter 8). Located between Chapters 8
and 9 is a Urine Sediment Image Gallery containing
more than 100 urine sediment photomicrographs to be
used as a teaching tool and reference for the
identification of urine sediment elements. Chapter 9
completes the study of urine with a discussion of the
clinical features of renal and metabolic disorders and
their associated urinalysis results…
