Study Notes

Urinalysis

  • Urinary sediment analysis: involves the detection and identification of insoluble materials in the urine.
  • Microscopic constituents: urine sediments can contain various microscopic constituents, including:
    • Casts
    • Crystals
    • Blood cells
    • Bacteria
    • Yeast
    • Parasites

Examination of Urine Sediment Structures

  • Demonstration slides: examining demonstration slides of urine sediment structures helps to:
    • Familiarize oneself with the morphology of normal and abnormal urine sediment components
    • Enhance identification skills

Preparing Urine Sediment for Microscopic Examination

  • Main objective: the main objective of preparing urine sediment for microscopic examination is to:
    • Concentrate and preserve the formed elements and insoluble materials in the urine for accurate identification and diagnosis

Formed Elements in Urine Sediment

  • Formed elements: some of the formed elements that can contribute to the urine sediment include:
    • Red blood cells
    • White blood cells
    • Epithelial cells
    • Casts
    • Crystals
