Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marguerite T. Shevlin, BS, SH (ASCP), MT (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This 203-page new book is a series of hematological units consisting of learning objectives, glossary, theory, exercises, summary, and review questions. Each exercise consists of a purpose, equipment needed, and a procedure.
Purpose: The book is designed to provide self-instruction for students of basic laboratory hematology. It allows a hands-on approach so that the student can gain skills and knowledge of the basic principles of hematology. With a strong emphasis on basic principles, the objective of the author has been somewhat met. If the future of the hematology laboratory is one where the majority of the staff consists of technicians whose purpose is to perform tests with minimal interpretation, the objective achieved by this book is worthy and futuristic.
Audience: The author has written this book specifically for students of hematology laboratory medicine, i.e., medical technology students. However, this seems inappropriate since medical technologists working in the hematology laboratory need a more extensive knowledge of hematology than presented in this book to function independently and effectively. Hematology technicians would be a more appropriate target group.
Features: This book is well organized. The various components of the units are distinctly separated. In particular, the gray on white that distinguishes the exercises from the rest of the text makes it easy to focus in on them. The references are relatively current and consist of authors knowledgeable in the field of hematology. Although the charts, diagrams, and sketches are clear and detailed, the black-and-white cellular photographs are dark and indistinct. Aside from this discrepancy, the book is appealing in appearance.
Assessment: Although this book has a definite value for individuals without a strong science or medicine education; i.e., a technician being prepared to perform minimal hematological duties, it does not fully serve the needs of the medical technology student in training.
