Overview

In this update of the 1998 edition, Dr. McCullough (Biomedical Engineering Institute, U. of Minnesota Medical School) overviews the non-unified US blood supply "system" and current issues in blood banking and transfusion. This leader in the hematology field reviews blood components, disorders affecting blood cells, lab tests, the latest transfusion techniques, and complications. Advances include new methods of platelet collection for the growing number of platelet-only transfusions, and cellular engineering of new blood components for novel therapies. He offers practitioners quality assurance guidance for keeping the US blood supply safe. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
