Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Simone Silberman, MD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This third edition of a comprehensive overview of transfusion medicine covers virtually every aspect of this discipline in 27 chapters written by over 30 contributors. Although the structure of the text has remained essentially the same as in the last edition, two new chapters have been added on quality assurance and blood bank information system.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide current theoretical and practical knowledge of modern transfusion practices. These objectives have been achieved.
Audience: The book is mainly directed toward the laboratory staff; however, residents and blood bank specialists can definitely benefit as well. The authors are all knowledgeable and have clearly extracted the essential facts.
Features: This well-produced book has an attractive appearance. There are 20 color plates at the beginning of the text, and although they aid the reader's understanding, they could have been placed more appropriately in the relevant chapters. The book has an expanded index, which together with the bold headings, helps the reader find the required information. As with multiauthored books, there is some repetition, such as in the case of blood components, which is covered chapters on transfusion therapy and donor selection and component preparation. As in the past, the contributors reflect practices currently used in the U.S.
Assessment: This book provides basic information and practical applications concerning current knowledge of blood transfusion practices and should be highly useful to any laboratory scientist who deals in this area.

A textbook for health sciences students. The new edition is revised to reflect current theory and practice. Provides a thorough grounding in the major blood banking and immunohematologic concepts. Half the contributors are new to this edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
