Updated Clinical Guide: Use of ALS to Identify Fluids on the Body

We can’t update Part II and not update Part I, so here’s the updated clinical guide, Use of ALS to Identify Fluids on the Body. There’s much less new here, but it’s nice to be complete. Let me know if I’m missing something, but I think all the peer-reviewed literature is there. Please don’t read one clinical guide without the other–much of what is contained in the ALS for Bruising guide is applicable, particularly as it concerns understanding the underlying science of how ALS works and its limitations.
