Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lisa Boggio, MD (Northwestern University Medical School)
Description: This overview of blood as an organ system briefly describes, in easy to understand terms, the functions of blood and its cellular components, disorders, and treatment. The uses of blood in therapy for anemias and malignancies are also well described.
Purpose: This book meets its purpose: to describe blood and its functions without confusion and in a straightforward manner.
Audience: Ancillary medical personnel without extensive scientific background such as medical technologists, medical secretaries, and patients, as well as nurses without extensive experience in hematologic disorders and malignancies are the audience.
Features: Blood as an organ system, the circulatory system, and components of blood are discussed well. Brief descriptions of abnormalities of blood, therapeutic uses of blood products, and treatment of malignancies are included. The illustrations are useful as teaching aids to understand the points discussed in the text.
Assessment: This book would be very useful for ancillary medical personnel such as medical technologists and some nurses with little clinical background in the function of blood, blood therapy, and treatment of disorders of the blood. As such, this is a useful reference tool and may be used as a starting point to learn more about the topic. The bibliography may be helpful to guide those who wish to have a more complete discussion of each topic. I gave the book to the nurses in my clinic as they could use it for a reference when explaining things to patients.
American Medical Writers Association
...put this text at the top of the acquisition list for any library serving students in allied health sciences and make it essential reading for perfusionists, nurses, and others who care for patients with hematologic disorders...[Dailey] has succeeded in producing a book on this topic that students and professionals in a variety of life sciences and health care fields will find to be highly readable and an excellent self teaching and reference tool.
