Intravenous literature: Agarwal, M. and Cottam, S. (2009) Laboratory tests in hepatic failure. Anaesthesia and intensive care medicine. 10(7), p.326-327.


Laboratory tests of liver function are widely used and often poorly understood. As in any field of medicine, they should be used as part of a diagnostic process involving history-taking and clinical examination. Interpretation of tests will depend on the situation in which they are used: to obtain a diagnosis, to assess prognosis in acute or chronic liver failure or to monitor disease progression and response to treatment.
