The second edition ofTransfusion Medicine and Hemostasiscontinues to be the only "pocket-size" quick reference for pathology residents and transfusion medicine fellows. It covers all topics in blood banking, transfusion medicine, and clinical and laboratory based coagulation. Short, focused chapters, organized by multiple hierarchical headings, are supplemented with up to 10 suggested reading citations. This single reference covers essentially all the topics required to meet the goals and objectives of a major program in transfusion medicine and clinical coagulation.

New chapters in the coagulation testing section reflect the development of new tests available and their incorporation into clinical practice. Coverage includes essential updates on the importance of new cellular therapies, peripheral blood and bone marrow hematopoietic progenitor cells, as well as cord blood banking and regenerative medicine. The authors also examine advances in the understanding of molecular testing and pathogen reduction in two separate quality control chapters (one for blood centers and one for hospitals).

  • Updated content covers new coagulation tests, cellular therapies, and quality control issues
  • Easy to use, with focused, well-defined chapters in a standardized format throughout
  • Offers quick "cross-reference" lists at the end of each chapter
  • Includes lists of common abbreviations and indexes that cross reference diagnostic, clinical and therapeutic commonalities

Editorial Reviews

"Given the cross disciplinary nature of transfusion medicine and the intensive focus on transfusion medicine and hemostasis as evidenced by the Transfusion Medicine, Hemostasis Clinical Trials Network sponsored by NHLBI, this textbook is both timely and needed by practitioners in both clinical and laboratory disciplines. The book is written exclusively by faculty of one of the leading programs in transfusion medicine, hemostasis, and hematology and covers important adult and pediatric concepts in these two fields. I know that hematologists, pathologists, and clinicians who depend upon transfusion and hemostatic support will find this novel text interesting and valuable in their practice and teaching efforts." --Paul M. Ness, MD, Director, Transfusion Medicine, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Professor of Pathology and Medicine & Oncology,  Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA "Few transfusion medicine texts have given such weight and focus to hemostasis. The combination of clinical and laboratory aspects in a concise format is superb. This book will be very useful both for those interested in transfusion medicine and those interested in hemostasis." -- Ellis Neufeld, MD, PhD, Associate Chief, Division of Hematology/Oncology , Children's Hospital Boston, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA  "This is an outstanding addition to transfusion medicine textbooks. For years we have needed the optimal text for training residents, fellows, and practitioners all in one book. The inclusion of coagulation, laboratory aspects and transfusion medicine was insightful and reflects the multi-disciplinary and clinical identity of Transfusion Medicine." --Leslie Silberstein, MD, Director, Joint Program in Transfusion Medicine at Children's Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Professor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA "The book edited by Dr. Christopher Hillyer, Beth Shaz, James Zimring and Thomas Abshire entitled Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis:  Clinical and Laboratory Aspects provides wonderful bite-size comments and clear concise recommendations.  This makes for a very practical textbook that should be useful to a wide body of healthcare workers who deal with the use of blood products or patients with bleeding or thrombosis.  The coverage of topics in transfusion medicine and coagulation is broad.  This is a major advantage of the textbook that makes it particularly useful.  The connection between the underlying pathophysiology and the clinical disorders and the treatment recommendations is at the level of just what you want to know.  This book is a winner, and I strongly endorse its use by anyone requiring information in this field."   --Michael Laposata, MD, PhD,  Pathologist in Chief, Vanderbilt University Hospital, Professor of Pathology and Medicine, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA
