Updated for its fourth edition, this book includes all major advances in the specialty, including malignant haematology, haemato-oncology, coagulation, transfusion medicine, and red cell disorders, with a brand new chapter on rare diseases.
Practically focused, and specifically designed for ease-of-use, and rapid access to the information you need, this handbook is an indispensable resource on all aspects of haematology for all trainee doctors, nurses, technicians, and research professionals.
The handbook is divided into clinical approach and disease-specific areas. The clinical approach section outlines various symptoms and signs in patients with blood disease to enable the reader to formulate a sensible differential diagnosis before embarking on investigation and treatment. The disease-specific section is written by four authors whose expertise covers the whole breadth of diseases included in the book. All authors have contributed to national guidelines (e.g. British Committee for Standards in Haematology, BCSH) and are experts in the evidence base that exists for each topic.
