• Presents the practice-proven experience of a leader in the field of pathology and hematology.
• Includes chapter summaries throughout for quick access to key guidance.
• Offers complete, quick access guidance on the full range of topics in blood bank and transfusion—from blood collection and storage...to testing and transfusing blood components...to cellular engineering.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michele D. Raible, MD, PharmD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This softcovered text covers transfusion medicine subjects including history, the U.S. blood supply system and donor issues, component production and use, immunohematology, and transfusion techniques and complications. Additional chapters discuss hematopoietic growth factors in transfusion medicine, cellular engineering for the production of new blood components, and therapeutic apheresis, and an appendix addresses quality programs.
Purpose: It is intended to be a concise yet comprehensive alternative to larger, more extensive textbooks.
Audience: The intended audience includes those working in transfusion medicine, as well as those using blood, such as hematologists and oncologists, pathologists, surgeons, and anesthesiologists. Other potential readers include hematology or oncology fellows, technologists working in the field, or others in educational positions wanting to learn more about transfusion medicine.
Features: The book features 19 chapters and an appendix that are written by the author (with the exception of "The HLA System in Transfusion Medicine"). Chapters on the history of transfusion, the blood supply system, and recruitment of blood donors provide an interesting introduction for readers unfamiliar with these areas. References are current and extensive. Illustrations and graphs are clear and appropriate and tables are uncomplicated and informative.
Assessment: This new text fills a niche in blood banking and transfusion medicine references, providing a reasonably priced, compact volume for physicians and others interested in the area but who do not need a more extensive textbook. Virtually every area of transfusion medicine is represented. The text flows smoothly, probably due to the consistency of a single author, with little overlap or duplication. This book provides a welcome alternative to the available publications in the field.
