    In first aid 4th ed mini cases,there is written lp analysis in the investigations for headache.
    but if u note closely,only in sub arachnoid hge and meningitis they have written in details what investigations to send for in lp i.e glucose,proteins,cell count,etc.
    my question is,if we are to write lp analysis only in the necessary work up column will it suffice or do i need to write the full,i.e lp for cell count,cell type,protein,sugar,etc.? main concern here is to save time by writing the least but necessary ones.
