The definitive haematology app of choice for medical students
This best app has been the worldwide standard in laboratory haematology. This app of Practical Haematology continues the tradition of excellence with thorough coverage of all of the techniques used in the investigation of patients with blood disorders, including the latest technologies as well as traditional manual methods of measurement. Youll find expert discussions of the principles of each test, possible causes of error, and the interpretation and clinical significance of the findings.
Essential Haematology has built a reputation as the flagship haematology app for both students and junior doctors, providing an authoritative introduction to the subject.
Now in its 7th edition, this classic text provides up-to-date knowledge of the pathogenesis, clinical and laboratory features, treatment of blood and bone marrow disorders, in its concise and user-friendly style.
Hoffbrand's Essential Haematology outlines the basic principles of clinical and laboratory haematology and shows how manifestations of blood diseases can be explained by new knowledge of the disease processes.
Provides up-to-date knowledge of the pathogenesis, clinical and laboratory features and treatment of all blood disorders
Features detailed information on the new genetics of leukaemia and lymphoma
Includes a new chapter on thrombosis, focussing on the new oral anticoagulants
Is beautifully presented, with over 300 colour illustrations
The analysis of blood, bone marrow and tissue fluid specimens requires a multi-faceted approach with the integration of scientific data from a number of disciplines. No single discipline can operate in isolation or errors will occur. Flow cytometry is in a privileged position in that it can provide rapid analysis of specimens and it is often the first definitive investigation to produce results and help formulate a working diagnosis.
This companion text to Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology Diagnosis contains 100 worked examples drawn from real clinical cases presenting to the authors institution. Cases are illustrated with peripheral blood and bone marrow cytology, tissue pathology and cytogenetic and molecular data, which are integrated to generate, where appropriate, a diagnosis based on the WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues.
