Liver function tests

  • : Online
Overview

Liver function tests (LFTs) are a panel of several blood tests used to assess and monitor potential abnormalities in the liver and hepatic system. Abnormal results may be due to one of two causes: damage to the liver itself, or a disruption in bile flow to or from the liver.

This module provides an overview of the indications for liver function tests and how to interpret the results. It is aimed at any nursing or midwifery personnel involved with conducting the test or providing care to a person having a liver function test.

  • Know the indications for a liver function test
  • Understand the normal parameters of liver function as tested through the test
