Page 1: ABO AND RH TYPE
- 2nd table “Reaction of Patients Red Blood Cells with Known Antiserum.” In the second row (blood group A) Patient’s red cells plus Anti-A,B should be POS rather than Neg. Thus, the second row of the table should read: POS NEG POS A 40 27 16 28.
Page 189: CREATINE PHOSPHOKINASE ISOENZYMES
- In the REFERENCE RANGE section the final number in that paragraph should be 100 rather than 10. Thus, the last sentence should read: “The relative index is calculated by dividing the CPK-MB in ng/mL (mass assay) by the total CPK activity in U/L and multiplying by 100.”
Page 253: FRACTIONAL EXCRETION OF SODIUM
- In the INTERPRETATION section, the equation for fractional excretion of sodium should read: Fractional Excretion = Urine/Plasma Sodium X 100 of Sodium (FENa) Urine/Plasma Creatinine (The word “creatinine” was left out of the denominator.)
Page 496: SODIUM
- In the section on Chronic Symptomatic Hyponatremia (>48h) at the end of the second line, beginning of the third line, the sentence should read: “…followed by slow correction rate, not exceeding 1-1.5 mmol/L/h or 15 mmol/L in 24 h.” Units should be mmol/L/h rather than mol/L/h.
