Ethical issues in lab and diagnostic testing

I need help to begin to formulate ethical questions and make ethical considerations related to lab and diagnostic testing by identifying the components of these tests and identify reasons why each test might be ordered:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC) with differential
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
  • Arterial Blood Gases (ABGs)
  • Urinalysis
  • Lipid Profile
  • Coagulation Studies
  • Cardiac Bio-marker

2. Create a table identifying at least two main reasons why each group of tests could be ordered. (Use the template below)

3-   Discuss your views on ethical issues in lab and diagnostic testing (refer to this weeks reading assignment articles), Your discussion may be based on the articles or you may introduce a different ethical dilemma.
