Summary

This bestseller emphasizes the practical aspects of general, organic, and biological chemistry with numerous applications to and case histories of clinical nursing and health-related situations. Avoiding excessive math and theory, it offers thorough and uniquely diverse coverage, giving allied health professionals the chemical background necessary to understand the various medical tests and procedures they will be following and performing in their jobs.Stresses the relationship between inorganic chemistry and the life processes with discussions of acids and bases, oxidation-reduction, nuclear chemistry and radio-activity, and more. Explains the various chemical processes taking place in the body during normal and abnormal metabolism, and considers the effects of an excess or deficiency of vitamins and hormones. Offers the state-of-the-art research in genetics, radiation technology, and electron microscopy. Supports material with a generous amount of practical examples--including case histories--and includes quality illustrations and many full-color photographs.For allied health professionals.
