Chemical reactions in Healthcare
Question 1: Chemical reactions
Diagnostic reactions are those occur in a medical instrument, outside of the human body
(Timberlake). These reactions help doctors make a medical diagnosis from diagnostic tests e.g.
the diagnostic test to establish the concentration of serum albumin in blood. This reaction is
represented by the following equation;
Albumin + bromocresol green --> albumin-bromocresol green complex
Pharmaceutical reactions are responses and interactions of pharmaceutical drugs with the
biomolecules in the body. This is important to the health care expertise in th...
