I am very happy to know that Dr. V.B. Mastamaradi, Dept. of Roga Nidan & Vikriti Vijnana of our college, has written a text book of 'Doctrines of Diagnostic Pathology', as per the CCIM, New Delhi Syllabus. In this Emerging world of Ayurveda, there is a drastic need of such text book which will enhance the knowledge of VG & PG students with ready references. This book highlighted the theory and practical aspects of diagnosis along with the diagnostic aids with expert depth interpretations. The Language used in this book is very easy to understand with real meaning of Ayurvedic terminologies. I wish the success of this book. I personally recommend this book to all the students of Ayurveda. Hope all well wishers of Ayurveda will appreciate this book.
I congratulate Professor Dr. VB. Mastamaradi for publishing this book.
This book "Doctrine's of Diagnostic Pathology" addresses the practical aspect of how to diagnose the disease by using diagnostic aids and laboratory procedures, content of this text was weighed towards Laboratory procedures and diagnosis of diseases to analyse perfectness in both modern and Ayurvedic diagnosis. It is a suitable book for undergraduate and post graduate training in Vikruti Vijnana and Roga Nidan. The books are never finished, but that they are abandoned. Finally it may have seemed a mission for a single author to attempt to write a comprehensive text on Vikryti Vijnana and Roga Nidan with Ayurvedic practical and Modern Practical Part.
The component of this book provides complete knowledge towards understanding of the factors which are essential for diagnosis of diseases.
It is unique in providing information related to laboratory diagnosis according to Ayurveda and Modern Medicine. The primary focus is to generate interest among Ayurveda graduates to adopt according to Ayurvedic diagnostics with comparison to Modem diagnostics in the routine practice. The material has been organized meticulously in such a way that the student can easily understand, retain and reproduce it.
A lot of development is taking place in the Clinical Laboratory methods. Information collected in this book is so comprehensive and each item is de It clearly and concisely. I am sure that it will meet the demand for update reference among the Laboratory Technologist and Students of Ayurveda. An ordinary Technician or a Doctor, who is in the remote place has no simple reference book with well accepted and simple procedures, with this in view "Doctrines of Diagnostic Pathology" has been compiled, hoping that it will prove useful to those in the field of laboratory investigations and Ayurved graduates Post graduates and practitioners.
When a person is ill, diagnosis begins with a physical examination by a doctor. It may not be possible to diagnosis a disease only, on the basis of physical examination there are various diagnostic tests to conform a suspected diagnosis. The pathology laboratory tests are extremely useful to find out the causes of a disease. Many life threatening diseases are curable if diagnosed at early stage and it is possible on the basis of reliable pathology, laboratory test results.
Is a branch of biological science which deals with the nature of disease through a study of its causes, its processes and it effects, with associated structural and functional alteration when a person becomes ill his symptoms are due to disturbances in the normal functions of the affected cells of his body. Pathology deals with the study of these disturbed functions how they arise, how they progress and how they affected other cell systems. Pathology also considers the factors which returns the functions of the affected cells to normalcy.
Is the application of laboratory techniques to find out the causes of disease. Clinical laboratory testing is regarded as one of the several important sources of clinical data essential for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of disease. Clinical laboratory medicines involves all aspects of medicine ranging from the fields of biochemistry, microbiology, haematology, immunology, clinical microscopy, biophysics, cytogenetics to istopology etc.
The physician orders laboratory testes in order to arrive at a diagnosis when a patient approaches the laboratory with a registration form requesting pathological testes, the pathologist with the help of other laboratory staff carries out of the following duties:
1. Instructing the patient
2. Collecting the specimen
3. Preserving the specimen
4. Analyzing the specimen
5. Preparing the reports and
6. Dispatching of the typed and signed reports
The test reports are useful to the physician to:
1. Establish a diagnosis
2. Confirm a clinical interpretation
3. Monitor therapy
4. Establish prognosis
5. Screen or detect disease
The functional components of the clinical laboratory are:
1. Clinical pathology
3. Clinical biochemistry
4. Clinical microbiology and Serology
5. Blood bank
6. Histology and Cytology
Clinical Pathology laboratory definition
According to clinical laboratory improvement act CCLlA, 88 USA, Pathology laboratory means a faculty for the biological, biophysical, cytological, pathological immunohematological, Serological or other examination of materials derived from the human body for the purpose of providing information for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of disease (or impairment of) or the assessment of the heath of human beings. These examinations also include procedures to determine or otherwise describe the presence of absence of various substances or organisms in the body.
Facilities only collecting or preparing specimens or both or only serving as mailing service and not performing testing are not considered laboratories.
The functions of clinical pathology laboratory is to perform qualitative and quantitative analysis on body fluids, such as blood (Serum, plasma) urine, sputum, feces, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) other body fluids, tissues and calculi.
Test reports are useful to the physician in the diagnosis and treatment of disease use of sound analytical methods and good instrumentations help to get accurate test results.
Various types of Laboratories
Following categories of clinical Pathological laboratories are based on clinical laboratory improvement Act (CLlA) of 1988 USA.
Pathology Laboratories that perform low complexity test
These laboratories can perform waived tests based on the determination that, they are simple and have an insignificant risk of erroneous results. These tests can also be performed at home. The methods employed are simple and accurate as to make the risk of erroneous results negligible and those that pose no reasonable risk of patient harm. If performed incorrectly the waived tests are:
1. Hemoglobin determination
2. Determination of Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)
3. Determination of packed cell volume (PCV)
4. Physical examination of urine
5. Chemical examination of urine
6. Dip stick urinalysis for: Glucose, bilirubin, ketones, hemoglobin, leukocytes, nitrites, PH, protein, urobilinozen and specific gravity, urine pregnancy test.
