Clinical chemistry continues to be one of the most rapidly advancing areas of laboratory medicine. Since the publication of the first edition of this textbook in 1985, many changes have taken place. New technologies and analytical techniques have been introduced, with a dramatic impact on the practice of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine. In addition, the health care system is constantly changing. There is increased emphasis on improving quality of patient care, individual patient outcomes, financial responsibility, and total quality management. For this reason, the editors have replaced “Procedures” with “Techniques” in the title in order to reflect the continued evolution of the laboratorian’s role in healthcare. Point-of-care testing (POCT) is also at the forefront of health care practice and has brought both challenges and opportunities to clinical laboratorians. Now, more than ever, clinical laboratorians need to be concerned with disease correlations, interpretations, problem-solving, quality assurance, and cost effectiveness; they need to know not only the how of tests but more importantly the what, why, and when. WHAT’S NEW IN THIS EDITION The editors of Clinical Chemistry: Techniques, Principles, Correlations have designed the sixth edition to be an even more valuable resource to both students and practitioners. Like the previous five editions, the sixth edition of Clinical Chemistry: Techniques, Principles, Correlations is comprehensive, up-to-date, and easy to understand for students at all levels. It is also intended to be a practically organized resource for both instructors and practitioners. The editors have tried to maintain the book’s readability and further improve its content. Because clinical laboratorians use their interpretative and analytic skills in the daily practice of clinical chemistry, an effort has been made to maintain an appropriate balance between analytic principles, techniques, and the correlation of results with disease states. In this sixth edition, the editors have made several significant changes in response to requests from our readers, students, instructors, and practitioners. Ancillary materials have been updated and expanded (see “Additional Resources,” below). Chapters now include current, more frequently encountered case studies and practice questions or exercises. To provide a thorough, up-to-date study of clinical chemistry, all chapters have been updated and reviewed by professionals who practice clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine on a daily basis. The basic principles of the analytic procedures discussed in the chapters reflect the most recent or commonly performed techniques in the clinical chemistry laboratory. Detailed procedures have been omitted because of the variety of equipment and commercial kits used in today’s clinical laboratories. Instrument manuals and kit package inserts are the most reliable reference for detailed instructions on current analytic procedures. All chapter material has been updated, improved, and rearranged for better continuity and readability. As a new offering, a Web site with additional case studies, review questions, teaching resources, teaching tips, additional references, and teaching aids for instructors and students is available from the publisher to assist in the use of this textbook (see section that follows). ADDITIONAL RESOURCES Clinical Chemistry: Techniques, Principles, Correlations, Sixth Edition, includes additional resources for both instructors and students that are available on the book’s companion Web site at thePoint.lww.com/Bishop6e. Instructors Approved adopting instructors will be given access to the following additional resources: ■ Brownstone Test Generator ■ Answers To Case Studies ■ Answers To Review Questions ■ Image Bank ■ PowerPoint slides ■ Web links and Teaching Tips Students Students who have purchased Clinical Chemistry: Techniques, Principles, Correlations have access to the following additional resources: ■ Chapter Objectives ■ Flash Cards ■ Quiz Bank In addition, purchasers of the text can access the searchable Full Text Online by going to the Clinical Chemistry: Techniques, Principles, Correlations Web site at thePoint.lww.com/Bishop6e.
