Overview

The 5th Edition continues to set the standard for developing a working knowledge of modern routine blood banking. Building from a review of the basic science to the how and why of clinical practice, this text is thorough guide to immunohematology and transfusion practices. "It begins with six color plates of which Plate 2 - standardized grading of macroscopic red cell antigen-antibody reactions - is extraordinarily useful. These are actual photomicrographs of immediate spin reactions and at a glance, will automatically assure standardized reporting of the reactions. Chapter on medicolegal and ethical aspects of providing blood collection and transfusion service is simply fascinating reveting reading. An added bonus is the table of blood group characteri stics (antigen, ISBT number, frequency in different ethnicities, expression during life, etc.) on the inside covers at the front and back of the book. Nothing like having a quick complete reference when you need it! This is a great book." Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD, University of California, San Francisco, California for Doody Review Service.
