  1. Screening laboratory evaluation in psychiatric patients : a review : Developing guidelines for treating depressive disorders in the primary care setting.

    Article - En anglais

    Routine laboratory screening of pschiatric patients is a common clinical practice.

    Several studies have demonstrated the limited utility and higher cost of ambulatory and preadmission screening in the evaluation of general medical patients.

    The data concerning the use of such screening profiles in psychiatric patients are reviewed.

    Widespread use of extensive screening batteries, consisting of complete blood cell count (CBC), complete blood chemistry analysis, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ERS), urinalysis, B12, folate, electroencephalogram (EEG), electrocardiogram (EKG), and chest x-ray film, is not indicated in the majority of psychiatric patients.
