Laboratory Procedures for Medical Assistants.
The purpose of the manual is to provide the medical assisting student a text which presents the common laboratory procedures in use today in physician's offices. The procedures for performing a complete urinalysis are outlined, along with those for carrying out various hematological tests. Information is also presented to help the student learn to identify forms of bacteria, to become acquainted with the various test media for growing cultures, and to learn to prepare smears and stains. A review test follows each of the three units of study. These procedures are based on the requirements for the certifying examination given by the American Association of Medical Assistants. The procedures are not intended to encompass the advanced skills needed in medical technology. (Author/NJ)
