Pathology & Genetics for Nurses

by K Swaminathan

This unique book Pathology and Genetics provides the reader an excellent opportunity to understand the basic concepts in Pathology and Genetics together, especially for the paramedical nursing students, who will be handling sick patients in the hospital wards. For a logical understanding, this book is divided into two parts. The Part I deals with Pathology and Part II deals with Human Genetics. The Part I on Pathology is further divided into Section 1 which deals with General Pathology, which provides a deep knowledge about the basic concepts of cellular pathology. Sections 2 to 5 deal with Systemic Pathology which is an application of the concepts of general pathology to organ systems. Sections 6 and 7 deal with Clinical Laboratory Pathology, which provides an overview on various methodologies of basic laboratory procedures, observation and interpretation of the investigations used in the diagnosis of various disease conditions. This will be of immense help for the nursing students especially with regard to the bedside investigations. The Part II of the book is dedicated to basic concepts of Human Genetics. Since genetics per se is a very vast speciality with various topics, only the most essential concepts have been incorporated in this section. It deals with basic structure of the chromosome and the various anomalies associated with it. The chapters on prenatal diagnosis, Genetic counselling and Role of paramedical personnel in diagnosis of genetic diseases have been dealt with in a detailed manner as these will be areas of primary importance for a paramedical nursing student.
