Liver function tests

CPD hours:

Liver function tests (LFTs) are a panel of several blood tests used to assess and monitor potential abnormalities in the liver and hepatic system. Abnormal results may be due to one of two causes: damage to the liver itself, or a disruption in bile flow to or from the liver.

This module provides an overview of the indications for liver function tests and how to interpret the results. It is aimed at any nursing or midwifery personnel involved with conducting the test or providing care to a person having a liver function test.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
