This book Clinical Biochemistry is Written by Allan Gaw, Denis St., Michael J. Stewart, James Shepherd. This book covers all the clinical biochemistry that undergraduate medical students need. It is an Illustrated Text in Color with the theme divided into a double page; this makes the information very accessible to the reader. The entire thrust of the book is to focus on how clinical biochemistry relates to patient care and to ensure that the medical student understands how to interpret laboratory results. In contrast, the reader is not overwhelmed by descriptions of laboratory techniques.
According to Allan: To reflect the difficulties that people sometimes have in analyzing hyperkalaemia and hypokalaemia, the existing distribution is divided into two: one on hyperkalaemia and one on hypokalaemia. The extension on hypertension will be revised and updated to reflect the fact that biochemistry is used as much or more to guide treatment than it is in the detection of secondary hypertension. Extensions on markers for myocardial infarction, cancer and tumor will be substantially revised and updated.
