This classic reference - a companion to the Effects of Drugs on Clinical Laboratory Tests and the Effects of Preanalytical Variables on Clinical Laboratory Tests - is significantly updated and expanded. More than 10,000 new entries are included, and several obsolete tests and entries of marginal value from the last edition have been deleted. This new edition allows the user to determine the pathological cause of laboratory test abnormalities; at what point in the disease course a test result can be affected; and how a test result can change over time depending on particular disease states. Following the format of the other volumes in the series, the book is divided into five sections: laboratory test index, disease keyword index, laboratory test listings, disease listings by ICD-9-CM code, and references. Each interaction entry includes the test name, the disease, and ICD-9-CM code; specimen type; direction of abnormality; and a discussion of the course, extent, and frequency of the abnormality (when available) with reference citation.
