Description

"About the Book ""The primary purpose of this edition remains the same as the first, namely to provide a comprehensive guide to transfusion medicine. The book aims to include information in more depth than is contained within handbooks of transfusion medicine, and yet to present that information in a more concise and approachable manner than is seen in large, standard reference texts. The feedback we have received not only from formal and informal reviews but also from colleagues is that these objectives continue to be achieved, and that the book benefits from a consistent style and format for its chapters. We have again striven to maintain this standard in the sixth edition and to provide a text that will be useful to clinical and scientific staff, both established practitioners and trainees, who are involved in transfusion medicine and require an accessible text. The book is divided into seven sections, which systematically take the reader through the principles of transfusion medicine, the complications of transfusion, practice in blood centres and hospitals, clinical transfusion practice, a new section on patient blood management, cellular and tissue therapy and organ transplantation and the development of the evidence base for transfusion. The main changes from the fifth edition are a new chapter on transfusion-associated circulatory overload by Alexander Vlaar to underline the condition's importance as a complication of transfusion, and a reconfiguration of the section on clinical transfusion practice to consider the transfusion management of medical, surgical and haematology patients with and without bleeding. The number of chapters has therefore been increased from 49 to 51. The first and final chapters on the recent evolution of transfusion medicine and scanning the future of transfusion medicine have always generated much interest in previous editions, and we are very grateful that Sunny Dzik, Ed Snyder, Paul Ness and Jay Menitove have provided excellent updates of their respective reviews for this edition""-- Book Synopsis Practical Transfusion Medicine Practical Transfusion Medicine, Sixth Edition The pace of change in transfusion medicine is relentless, with new scientific and technological developments and continuing efforts to improve transfusion practice.
