Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michele D. Raible, MD, PharmD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of an immunohematology book that encompasses the basics of immunohematology, along with technical and practical aspects of the discipline, in a format meeting the needs of undergraduate clinical laboratory science students.
Purpose: The purpose is to integrate the basic foundations of immunohematology with technical aspects and practical applications. Safety and quality assurance issues are discussed as well as routine and special blood banking procedures.
Audience: Undergraduate clinical laboratory science students, educators, and blood banking personnel comprise the suggested targeted audience, and this book is well suited for educational purposes. The author has written additional texts in hematology, immunology, and serology.
Features: The illustrations are clear and appropriate, enhancing the text. Many tables and charts are included, serving as useful additions to, or summaries of, narrative text. Clear chapter objectives, interspersed illustrative case studies, and review questions will be helpful to the student reader, as will a glossary of fundamental terms. Two brief appendixes introduce foundations of genetic interactions and paternity assessment. Thorough bibliographies with contemporary references conclude each chapter.
Assessment: This book will be useful to undergraduate clinical laboratory students and their educators by combining the foundations of immunohematology with practical applications and technical aspects. The format of the text should lend itself easily to either a formal classroom setting or to self-study.
