Overview

To address the exponential growth in the fields of pediatric hematology and oncology, this classic reference has been separated into two distinct volumes. With this volume, devoted strictly to pediatric hematology, and another to pediatric oncology, you’ll keep you on the cutting-edge of these two specialties. The completely revised 7th edition of Nathan and Oski’s Hematology of Infancy and Childhood is now in full color, and provides you with the most comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date information for diagnosing and treating children with hematologic disorders. It brings together the pathophysiology of disease with detailed clinical guidance on diagnosis and management for the full range of blood diseases that you encounter in everyday practice. Written by the leading names in pediatric hematology, this resource is an essential tool for anyone involved in caring for children with hematologic disorders. And, as an Expert Consult title, this thoroughly updated 7th edition comes with access to the complete contents online, fully searchable.

• Balances summaries of relevant pathophysiology with clear, practical clinical guidance to help you thoroughly understand the underlying science of diseases.

• Offers comprehensive coverage of all hematologic disorders, including newly recognized ones, along with the latest breakthroughs in diagnosis and management.

• Uses many boxes, graphs, and tables to highlight complex clinical diagnostic and management guidelines at a glance.

• Presents an all-new full-color design that includes clear illustrative examples of relevant science and clinical problems for quick access to the answers you need.

• Provides access to the complete contents online, fully searchable, enabling you to consult it rapidly from any computer with an Internet connection.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rafael Ducos, MD (Ochsner for Children)
Description: This is the gold standard reference in pediatric hematology, an indispensable tool for the offices of practicing pediatric hematologists. It provides a comprehensive review of blood disorders in neonates, infants, and children at the clinical and basic science level. The six authors and 74 contributors are well known experts in the field of pediatric blood disorders. The rapid advances of molecular biology make this seventh edition necessary. The first edition was published in 1974, and the sixth in 2003.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a comprehensive review of the field, including not only the clinical aspects but also the basic science behind each of the blood disorders of neonates, infants, and children.
Audience: Practicing hematologists, especially pediatric hematologists, and pediatric hematology trainees are the intended audience. Medical students, pediatric residents, and general pediatricians also will find this book useful as a reference.
Features: It thoroughly covers childhood anemias, leukocyte and platelet disorders, hematologic malignancies, supportive care, and hematologic manifestations of systemic diseases, both the clinical aspects and the basic science.
Assessment: While this is the gold standard for pediatric hematologists, it also is an excellent resource for general pediatricians, providing basic information on the hematology of children. I prepared for my pediatric hematology board examination with the first edition of this book in 1974. The seventh edition updates, preserves, and fulfills the objectives set out by the original editors, David Nathan and Frank Oski, in 1974.
From the Publisher
"This is an excellent text of non-malignant paediatric haematology, carrying on the well established tradition of previous editions... The book is underpinned by inclusion of up-to-date information about the pathogenesis of haematological diseases, which is especially important given the huge contribution of molecular geneticists to the understanding of paediatric haematology, and vice versa." BMA Book Awards 2009- judges comments

"This is the gold standard reference in pediatric hematology, an indispensable tool for the offices of practicing pediatric hematologists... it also is an excellent resource for general pediatricians, providing basic information on the hematology of children... The seventh edition updates, preserves, and fulfills the objectives set out by the original editors, David Nathan and Frank Oski, in 1974." - Doody's Review, 4 Stars

    Poor choice

    Very poor choice. Book is too large for the device. Loading pages is extremely slow. Support staff also not helpful. Do not recommend this book for anyone. You are better of with the actual textbook
