Abstract

Although prophylactic vaccines and a better screened blood supply have contributed to a decreased incidence of viral hepatitis, liver injury remains a common problem. It is important that nurse practitioners know which patients are at risk for hepatic injury, when and how to screen for hepatic injury, and how to monitor patients diagnosed with hepatic damage. The National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry guidelines related to hepatic injury provide a framework for the screening, diagnosis, and monitoring of hepatic injury resulting from a variety of causes.
