Editors Warekois, Robinson, and Primrose present the 4th edition of this text for phlebotomist, medical technologist, medical assistant, laboratory technician, and nurse training programs, updated to reference the most common equipment, procedures, and guidelines. The book is divided into five units with the first unit dedicated to the phlebotomist's place in the overall health care system, with particular attention to safety and infection control. Unit 2 is anatomy and physiology focused, including terminology drilling and overview of the main systems relevant to phlebotomy: circulatory, lymphatic, and immune. Unit 3 spans most of the book and covers specimen collection technique including venipuncture, capillary collection, arterial blood collection, nonblood collection, complications, special populations, and special procedures. Unit 4 discusses specimen handling in both chain-of-custody situations and point-of-care testing. The final unit offers a primer on professional issues of care quality and legal liability in the field. The appendix offers competency checklists, answers to chapter questions, and a mock certification exam, among other tools. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
