A comprehensive guide to Investigations and Pathology - updated for 2021 to include COVID testing.
Edited by Warwick J Carter MBBS, FRACGP, FAMA
Pathaid is a compact but comprehensive guide to Clinical Investigation. It provides advice as to which pathology tests should be ordered, and then guides the doctor in the interpretation of those tests, making it easier to arrive at a diagnosis.
The aim of Pathaid is to be a quick ready reference for all doctors, from interns to senior specialists, when they are faced with even slight uncertainty. They will know the outline of the knowledge but need something other than a detailed text to quickly refresh their memory.
What is the normal value for a result?
What tests do I perform to confirm a diagnosis?
What other conditions can cause these symptoms?
Pathaid is an invaluable guide to doctors, covering hundreds of pathology investigations used in medical practice, in a single easily referenced volume. This new edition covers all diagnostic tests including COVID-19 testing.
Pathaid was first published in 1978 and has been updated annually since then. More than 3* million copies have been published in eleven languages and distributed in more than 85 countries.
