Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Test Your Skills ~

1. What is the significance of an elevated mean corpuscular volume (MCV)?
2. What does an elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN) level with a normal creatinine level indicate?
3. What is the diagnostic difference between ST depression and ST elevation?
4. How does pregnancy affect fibrinogen or platelet levels?

This seminar will look at the answers to these and many other questions regarding laboratory and diagnostic tests. Participants will learn the significance of both the normal findings of numerous commonly ordered laboratory tests as well as the implications of various abnormalities. The course is loaded with case studies to bring laboratory abnormalities to life. Content will cover everything from hematology to chemistry studies, liver function tests to kidney function tests, as well as topics such as interpreting the urinalysis, the electrocardiogram and the chest X-ray. The effects of factors such as age and pregnancy will also be considered. This seminar is meant to enhance the practice of healthcare workers in all clinical areas, from critical care to medical-surgical, surgical services to rehabilitation services.
