This textbook of clinical chemistry contains clear, concise directions for determining the functioning of various organs and for analyzing small amounts of body fluids, feces and urine, calculi, and gastric and duodenal contents. Besides giving instructions for specific tests, the author discusses normal values for the methods included in the text, spectroscopic procedures, hydrogen ion concentration, preparation of volumetric solutions, and the use of colorimetric and photometric instruments. Only brief statements are made on the significance of the tests. The organization of the material, the index, and the make-up are good, but it is a little surprising to find directions for determining pH only by means of indicators.
