Featuring hundreds of full-color photomicrographs, Hematology: Clinical Principles and Applications prepares you for a job in the clinical lab by exploring the essential aspects of hematology. It shows how to accurately identify cells, simplifies hemostasis and thrombosis concepts, and covers normal hematopoiesis through diseases of erythroid, myeloid, lymphoid, and megakaryocytic origins. This book also makes it easy to understand complementary testing areas such as flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular diagnostics. Well-known authors Bernadette Rodak, George Fritsma, and Elaine Keohane cover everything from working in a hematology lab to the parts and functions of the cell to laboratory testing of blood cells and body fluid cells.Full-color illustrations make it easier to visualize complex concepts and show what you’ll encounter in the lab.Learning objectives begin each chapter, and review questions appear at the end.Instructions for lab procedures include sources of possible errors along with comments.Case studies provide opportunities to apply hematology concepts to real-life scenarios.Hematology instruments are described, compared, and contrasted.Coverage of hemostasis and thrombosis includes the development and function of platelets, the newest theories of normal coagulation, and clear discussions of platelet abnormalities and disorders of coagulation.A bulleted summary of important content appears at the end of every chapter.A glossary of key terms makes it easy to find and learn definitions.Hematology/hemostasis reference ranges are listed on the inside front and back covers for quick reference.Respected editors Bernadette Rodak, George Fritsma, and Elaine Keohane are well known in the hematology/clinical laboratory science world.Student resources on the companion Evolve website include the glossary, weblinks, and content updates. New content is added on basic cell biology and etiology of leukocyte neoplasias.Updated Molecular Diagnostics chapter keeps you current on techniques being used in the lab.Simplified hemostasis material ensures that you can understand this complex and important subject.Coverage of morphologic alteration of monocytes/macrophages is condensed into a table, as the disorders in this grouping are more of a biochemical nature with minimal hematologic evidence.
Three books for the price of one—a text, a laboratory procedures manual, and an atlas of cell morphology—all in full color!The tools your students need to quickly master the basic principles of hematology and the fundamentals of hemostasis are here. They’ll begin with an introduction to clinical hematology and the anemias, and then progress through white blood cell disorders, and hemostasis to thrombosis, and laboratory methods.
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is pleased to introduce the second edition of Anderson's Atlas of Hematology, the most comprehensive atlas for the laboratory technologist. Understanding that effectiveness as a technician comes through the ability to identify what one sees under the microscope, this atlas equips students with visual examples of the concepts covered in their programs. With its four-color illustrations and clear descriptions, this atlas enables you to describe and identify all stages in the development of blood cells. Moreover, it provides an illustrated guide to a broad range of hematologic disorders. Used as a quick reference, study guide, or atlas, this is an invaluable tool for today's laboratory technician student.Updated and Revised!This Second Edition of the acclaimed Anderson’s Atlas of Hematology has been thoroughly updated and revised based on the latest basic science and clinical findings. In addition, you’ll find new, higher-quality images as well as the most recent World Health Organization classification of hematologic disorders. Anderson’s Atlas of Hematology is divided into two units: Unit One, Cell Descriptions, features three sections covering blood cells, bone marrow, and cytochemistry. For each cell type, you’ll find a description of the cell size, nucleus, and cytoplasm as well as a list of associated clinical disorders. High-quality photos and drawings illustrate the maturation stages of each cell type. Unit Two, Hematologic Disorders, includes three sections dedicated to red blood cell disorders, white blood cell disorders, and miscellaneous disorders. For each disorder, there’s a summary of pathology as well as clinical and laboratory features. In addition, a diagnostic scheme sets forth the relevant laboratory findings that lead to the delineation of each disorder.Take advantage of this text’s online resources!
