Graff's Textbook of Urinalysis and Body Fluids is a thoroughly revised and updated second edition of a standard textbook first published in 1983.
The text begins with introductory material about laboratory operations and safety issues. There is comprehensive coverage of renal anatomy and physiology, and the mechanics of urine formation. Following this are chapters discussing: collection and physical examination of urine; chemical analysis of urine; microscopic examination of urinary sediment (including a most useful 93-page atlas of color photomicrographs of structures found in the urinary sediment). There is an excellent chapter on urinary and metabolic diseases and related urinalysis findings.
Body fluids are covered in great scope and detail, to include: cerebrospinal fluid, serous body fluids, synovial fluid, semen analysis, fecal analysis, and miscellaneous body fluids. Short sections of the text discuss automation of urinalysis and body fluid examination, historical perspectives, and reagent strip color chart, and there is a handy glossary.
This excellent text will serve as a useful desk reference for the practicing technologist.
Each section meets the Florida 1-hour requirement in clinical chemistry.
