Publisher Comments:

PARASITOLOGY FOR MEDICAL LABORATORY TECHNICIANS is the ideal text to guide readers in understanding the background, source, recovery, and identification of a well-representative range of organisms that commonly affect humans. This book organizes a complex set of topics into an understandable and easy-to-read format that will help readers learn more about parasitic infections and how to effectively collect and prepare samples, aiding in the diagnosis of parasitosis. The subtle differences between similar parasitic organisms are all explained in a simple and easily understood manner, increasing the likelihood that readers will be able to recover the parasites, prepare them for identification and, subsequently, ensure effective treatment.

About the Author

John W. Ridley has been involved in training and education for most of his life and has been an active health care educator since 1992. Mr. Ridley has taught a number of academic science courses, as well as initiating two MLT/CLT programs at two separate educational institutions. As the Allied Health Director of a technical college, he has also initiated several other programs, including Veterinary Technology and Pharmacy Technology. John W. Ridley has been a patient care technician, a respiratory therapy assistant, a combat medic in the Vietnam Conflict and a medical laboratory technician at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. He also served in Desert Shield and Desert Storm, where many servicepersons were treated for a variety of parasitic infections. Mr. Ridley is a licensed registered nurse and holds a Doctoral Degree in Health and Human Services, with an emphasis in Psychology. It is Mr. Ridley's belief that health care providers of all disciplines should have a broad theoretical background in all major areas impacting health on a global basis. His wide experience as a medical technologist, along with his added skills from the nursing and human services fields, lends a unique blend to his writing.
