Course objectives :
This course is concerned with the study of the pathological conditions including lipid disorders, Cardiovascular diseases, Thyroid, Parathyroid functions and Assessments of Male, Female reproductive systems and their assessment in clinical laboratory and interpretations. Also, this course focuses on the relevance of biochemical tests, reference range and abnormal levels of these biochemical components. Moreover, the students will apply diverse analytical procedures, instrumentation, automation and laboratory mathematics common used in labs
Course description :
At the end of this course, the student will: • Demonstrate and understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of different organs. • Be thoroughly familiar with each technique, with general methods of clinical chemistry, and with the purity of chemicals, solvents and reagents. • Correctly perform various types of laboratory calculations. • Explain the principles of methods and the selection and use of appropriate analytical equipment. • Explain the purpose of each reagent used in an analysis and each essential component of an instrument. • Adopt and demonstrate safe work practices. • Discuss the functions of reference values and changes seen in health and disease. • Evaluate and interpret laboratory data to ensure accuracy and reliability. • Detect and verify abnormal results and confirm the presence of disease states. • Work independently but as an essential part of the health care team.
