Transfusion Medicine is the proceedings of the 25th Jubilee International Symposium on Blood Transfusion and reviews what has been achieved and what can be expected. There have been many achievements during the last quarter of the 20th century - for example the Landsteiner discovery of red cell markers and the Huestin development of an appropriate anticoagulant.
The proceedings of this landmark symposium offer a wealth of information on the future of this new and evolving field of medicine. The material is presented in four sections: Blood Supply Systems and Organisation; Technical and Pharmaceutical Developments; Quality Principles and Risk Management; and Transfusion Medicine for the Patient.
Transfusion Medicine provides a comprehensive review of this area and its accomplishments and future directions. This is a worthwhile and recommended edition for those involved in transfusion medicine: clinicians, policy makers, and researchers.
