Biochemistry Interpretation in the ECC (for Nurses)
This webinar will focus on biochemistry and electrolyte analysis, with particular emphasis on interpretation in the Emergency and Critical Care setting. This webinar will be a clinical pathology focussed session, and will discuss the diagnosis, rather than the treatment of diseases.
Aspects that will be discussed include the following:
- The benefits and disadvantages of running an in-house serum biochemistry and electrolyte panel in the ECC setting
- What tests make up a biochemistry and electrolyte panel, and the most common causes that lead to increases or decreases in these results
- A basic overview of how we interpret patient results
- What factors may affect results and why

Rebekah was born and raised in Melbourne, and apart from a one year stint as an amateur backpacker, has not strayed far. She graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2011, and spent three years working in general practice in the inner suburbs, and one year working as an emergency and critical care veterinarian in a veterinary referral hospital. Her passion for the microscope redirected her to pathology, and she completed a Veterinary Clinical Pathology Residency at the University of Melbourne. She currently works as a clinical pathologist at ASAP labs in Melbourne. She is the proud mother of a sassy little Jack Russell Terrier called ‘Momo’.
