About this title:
Written by a world-renowned expert in the field of blood morphology, A Beginner's Guide to Blood Cells provides a concise introduction to normal and abnormal blood cells and blood counts for trainees in haematology.
The third edition of this popular pocket book:
- Includes a brand new chapter on emergency morphology, designed to make the clinical significance and urgency of certain laboratory findings clear for biomedical scientists and to assist trainee haematologists in the recognition of major clinically important abnormalities
- Contains exceptional full colour images throughout
- Introduces important basic concepts of haematology, setting haematological findings in a clinical context
- Provides a fully updated self–assessment section
In an easily manageable 160 pages, including an index, this handy volume is divided into six chapters on: The Blood Film and Count; Assessing Red Cells; Assessing White Cells and Platelets; Haematological Findings in Health and Disease; Emergency Morphology: The Relevance of the Full Blood Count and Blood Film in Acute Illness, and Self-assessment. Each chapter (except the last) is further divided into discrete sections focussing on all the essential topics – e.g., hepatic damage and liver failure, acute leukaemia, bacterial infection and other causes of leucocytosis, eosinophilia, lymphocytosis, malaria, neutropenia, pancytopenia and leucoerythroblastic blood films, and neonatal emergencies – ensuring that A Beginner's Guide to Blood Cells remains an essential resource for trainee haematologists, biomedical scientists, and biomedical science and medical students.
