Caption: A nurse draws a blood sample from the arm of an elderly woman, in order to carry out a liver function test. A tourniquet (strap) is used to restrict the flow of blood in the vein. This blood sample will be chemically tested for elec- trolytes and levels of urea. It will help diagnose liver disease, inflammation, and the efficiency of the liver to filter and cleanse the blood of toxic substances.
