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.
Let your wry medical side shine when you wear this tee featuring the four major blood types (blood groups) along with the caption "What's Your Type?" Blood groups are based on the presence and absence of antibodies and on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs). Make others do a double-take on which blood group they have whenever you wear this educational, scientific query t-shirt!
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.
A full-color clinical reference covering both common and uncommon blood disorders – referenced to the world’s leading hematology textWilliams Manual of Hematology, Ninth Edition provides a quick-access summary of the epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, and therapy of blood cell and coagulation protein disorders. The 93 chapters of the Manual are a distillation of the disease- and therapy-focused chapters from the Ninth Edition of Williams Hematology. The book has been carefully edited to deliver only the most clinical point-of-care facts, making differential diagnosis faster, easier, and more efficient. Concise but comprehensive, this complete guide includes sections on:• Initial Clinical Evaluation• Disorders of Red Cells• Disorders of Granulocytes• Disorders of Monocytes and Macrophages• Principles of Therapy for Neoplastic Hematological Disorders• The Clonal Myeloid Disorders • The Polyclonal Lymphoid Diseases• The Clonal Lymphoid and Plasma Cell Diseases• Disorders of Platelet and Hemostasis• Disorders of Coagulation Proteins• Thrombosis and Antithrombotic Therapy• Transfusion and Hemapheresis

Hematology Case Review is a comprehensive text that covers the expansive knowledge about the study of blood cells.After collecting blood smears and bone marrow aspirates for over 40 years, Dr. Doll has created the most up to date and comprehensive compilation of hematology case studies. These samples form the core of the case studies featured in this book, including benign disorders, such as hereditary spherocytosis, to neoplastic neoplasms like acute leukemia.Within the text, both rare and common conditions are discussed, with the presenting symptoms, blood counts, and pertinent images. The book is formatted in an interactive problem-based layout in order to enhance the question and answer features of the book. It is a widely applicable text that has been utilized for its practicality for over 15 years, and is becoming particularly important for general internists, family practice physicians, and hospitalists. Additionally, Hematology Case Review continues to be a vital tool and asset for medical students, medical residents, hematology-oncology fellows, and pathology residents. FEATURES:· 95 comprehensive case studies· 227 full-color images· Up-to-date information from hands-on clinical practice
