Authoritative experts in transfusion medicine describe in critical detail the most important procedures for obtaining, selecting, and transfusing red blood cells to patients. The topics covered include such key issues as transfusion problems in the immunocompromised, the complications of autoantibodies, transfusion of infants with hemolytic disease, difficulties arising from solid organ transplantation, stem cell transfusions, and the challenges of massive transfusion. Also discussed are the use, limitations, and alternatives to autogeneic cells; long-term red cell transfusion; the management of adverse reactions to red cell transfusions; and the question of blood group antigens and their association with disease and differential diagnosis. The book offers transfusion specialists fresh insights and information to maximize and extend their current knowledge.
