Help your students master the skills needed to perform clinical laboratory calculations! Mathematics for the Clinical Laboratory, 4th Edition provides clear guidelines for the calculations used in the analysis of test specimens. It begins by explaining basic mathematical principles and then covers the types of calculations needed in clinical lab areas including urinalysis, hematology, and microbiology. Finally, it focuses on the statistical calculations used in quality assurance and quality control. Step-by-step examples reinforce understanding, and calculation templates and practice problems help students learn to make correct calculations every time.

    • Step-by-step examples explain basic mathematical principles and show you exactly how to perform each type of calculation.
    • Sample problems with answers can also be used as templates for solving laboratory calculations.
    • Practice problems at the end of each chapter provide a self-assessment tool, helping you determine what you need to review.
    • Summaries of important formulas are included at the end of the text’s major sections.
    • Coverage of statistical calculations includes standard deviation, as well as calculations associated with quality assurance and quality control. 
    • Quick tips and notes make it easier to understand and remember pertinent information.
    • Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter provide measurable outcomes to achieve by completing the chapter material.
    • Full-color design includes 100 illustrations.
