- Description
- Mathematics for the Clinical Laboratory gives you a hands-on, in-depth understanding that goes beyond rote memorization. You'll learn calculation skills that will stay with you throughout your education and into your career. This comprehensive, practical text shows you how to perform the clinical calculations used in each area of the laboratory to ensure accurate results for patients. These features make it all possible: a general introduction to each mathematical calculation, including its theoretical and practical applications; a different color highlighting the progression from calculation to solution to demonstrate how to work through a problem; step-by-step examples of mathematical calculations that can be used as templates to ensure your calculations are correct every time; separate chapters on each area of the laboratory, including immunohematology and microbiology, as well as chapters on statistical concepts; coverage of commonly used clinical laboratory calculations such as molarity, dilutions, and concentration for a better understanding of clinical laboratory mathematics; practice problems at the end of each chapter to further reinforce math concepts; and an answer key that provides detailed rationales for all solutions to calculations.
