Reviews

"It's not hard to see why this book would be so popular. The subject alone is probably one of the most variably practiced within haematology, with many different possible strategies to manage each situation - often with each strategy being as valid as the next....Consultative Hemostasis and Thrombosis is wonderfully evidence based and clear on what has and has not been discovered in trials, and the shortcomings of those studies...This is certainly a good investment, particularly if your practice is outside a major teaching hospital, with limited access to a sub-specialist in coagulation. The online access to the entire text via th ExpertConsult.com website is just the icing on the cake."
