o Chapter 24 Good and brief review of blood cells physiology ( but i skipped hemostasis - studied it from youtube* ) and investigation .

o Chapter 28 Tables of the laboratory results , i found that having a copy making while rounds helps memorizing them .

* Easy Coagulation Cascade (1 of 2) - Simple & easy to remember
I just changed the rating from 5 stars to 3 stars, as I'm reading more into the different systems, my head stars to hurt. It's unnecessarily detailed, and haphazard...

“Primary hyperparathyroidism Primary hyperparathyroidism is caused by autonomous secretion of PTH, usually by a single parathyroid adenoma which can vary in diameter from a few millimetres to several centimetres. It should be distinguished from secondary hyperparathyroidism, in which there is a physiological increase in PTH secretion to compensate for prolonged hypocalcaemia (such as in vitamin D deficiency, p. 1121), and tertiary hyperparathyroidism, in which continuous stimulation of the parathyroids over a prolonged period of time results in adenoma formation and autonomous PTH secretion (Box 20.37). This is most commonly seen in individuals with advanced chronic kidney disease (p. 487).” 0 likes
