This series is directed to Healthcare professionals who are leading the transformation
of health care by using information and knowledge. Historically, the series was
launched in 1988 as Computers in Health Care, to offer a broad range of titles:
some addressed to specific professions such as nursing, medicine, and health
administration; others to special areas of practice such as trauma and radiology; still
other books in the series focused on interdisciplinary issues, such as the computerbased
patient record, electronic health records, and networked Healthcare systems.

Blood and urine are the common specimens for drug analysis in both antemortem and postmortem cases. Usually, urine is used for drug screening using immunoassays at the first step; secondly, the drug detected is chromatographically quantitated with blood. The data obtained are carefully assessed with taking the values reported in references into consideration together with clinical and postmortem findings; the judgement of poisoning and its degree is made comprehensively.
Drug abuse in the developed world is an international problem. In the USA, in an
effort to deter drug use and identify abusers so they may receive treatment, testing
an individual’s urine has become a large commercial enterprise. Drug testing has also
been a traditional part of clinical care in medicine and in the medicolegal investigation
of death. While scientists conducting drug testing in the postmortem arena routinely
analyze a variety of biological matrices, the specimen of choice in the drug testing
industry in the USA is urine and in clinical medicine, serum.
