The 21 chapters presented by the authors (of Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland) first cover requesting and interpreting tests; disturbances of water, sodium, and potassium balance; and acid-base balance and oxygen transport and are thereafter organized by disease category, with the exception of the two final chapters on therapeutic drug monitoring and chemical toxicology and clinical biochemistry
in pediatrics and geriatrics.
Mr Rooke started his pathology career in Carmarthenshire in 1968 before taking up a senior clinical biochemistry
position in Merthyr in 1979.
The National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry
has drafted Laboratory Medical Practice Guidelines for pharmacogenetic testing (www.aacc.org), which will likely expand along with the growth of this new and exciting field.
