More than 500 cards deliver concise, but complete coverage of the major disciplines on the Board of Certification’s content outline and practice today.
Use this comprehensive resource to gain the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to be prepared for classroom tests and certification and licensure examinations.
This easy to use resource prepares clinical laboratory scientists and clinical laboratory technicians for the certification and re-certifica tion examinations. An update of questions and answers reflects the mos t recent changes to the NCA exams. Organized by curriculum area, the b ook is sub-divided into review questions for CLT and questions for CLS, with answers accompanied by rationales directly follow the questions . The back of the book features two review tests for practice, for CLT and for CLS. An accompanying CD-ROM contains 500 practice questions.
This self-examination review is designed to prepare students for exams such as the US National Certificate Examinations. Over 200 multiple choice and objective questions are accompanied by detailed explanations. The new edition features a practice exam and additional case study questions.
This unique collection of 55 multidisciplinary case studies is designed to help laboratory technologists and technicians "experience" how departments work together to help the physician make a diagnosis and determine the best course of treatment for the patient. In working through the comprehensive, real-world scenarios, readers deal firsthand with interpreting data from two, three or four disciplines (Blood Bank, Chemistry, Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology, Urinalysis), integrating the facts (laboratory data) from different departments and thinking critically about what they mean. Includes 55 cases--11 Blood Bank cases; 12 Chemistry cases; 10 Hematology/Coagulation cases; 5 Immunology/Serology cases; 10 Microbiology cases; 7 Urinalysis cases. Technicians and technologists who have been out of the field for awhile and are in the process of reentry into the profession and technicians and technologists who are looking for a general review of clinical laboratory science.
Thoroughly revised and updated, the 6th Edition of this popular text continues to set the standard for developing a comprehensive understanding of modern routine blood banking and transfusion practices. Building from a review of the basic sciences to the how and why of clinical practice, this text is the ideal guide to immunohematology and transfusion practices.
This study guide was designed specifically for medical laboratory students and those studying for ASCP certification as an MLT. It uses a unique approach and leaves out the gobbledygook and concentrates only on the stuff that you need to know. It begins with a thorough learning outline that leave a space for notes on each opposing page. This allows a student to add information and taylor it to their own specific needs. It ends will a thorough multiple choice and Q & A section. This study guide includes thorough outlines and study sessions that encompass erythropoiesis, RBC morphology, and anemias.
