Description

Hematology and Coagulation is a clear and easy-to-read presentation of core topics and detailed case studies that illustrate the application of hematopathology knowledge to everyday patient care. In order to be successful, as well as to pass the American Board of Pathology examination, all pathology residents must have a good command of hematopathology, including the challenging topics of hematology and coagulation. Hematology and Coagulation meets this challenge head on.

This basic primer offers practical examples of how things function in the hematopathology clinic as well as useful lists, sample questions, and a bullet-point format ideal for quick pre-board review. This book provides only the most clinically relevant examples designed to educate senior medical students, residents and fellows and "refresh" the knowledge base, without overwhelming students, residents, and clinicians.

Key Features

  • Takes a practical and easy-to-read approach to understanding hematology and coagulation at an appropriate level for both board preparation as well as a professional refresher course
  • Covers all important clinical information found in larger textbooks in a more succinct and easy-to-understand manner
  • Covers essential concepts in hematopathology in such a way that fellows and clinicians understand the methods without having to become specialists in the field

Readership

Residents and fellows in pathology and clinical chemistry, practicing pathologists and clinical chemists

Reviews

"It would be of interest to any pathologist or laboratory medicine practitioner in practice wanting a quick review of the subject…a great book to review in preparation for the clinical pathology board exam. Score: 86 - 3 Stars" --Doody's

"At A Glance Hematology and Coagulation is a clear and easy-to-read presentation of core topics and detailed case studies that illustrate the application of hematopathology knowledge to everyday patient care. In order to be successful, as well as to pass the American Board of Pathology examination, all pathology residents must have a good command of hematopathology, including the challenging topics of hematology and coagulation. Hematology and Coagulation meets this challenge head on. This basic primer offers practical examples of how things function in the hematopathology clinic as well as useful lists, sample questions, and a bulletpoint format ideal for quick preboard review. This book provides only the most clinically relevant examples designed to educate senior medical students, residents and fellows and "refresh" the knowledge base, without overwhelming students, residents, and clinicians.

Description: This is a review of clinical hematology and coagulation concepts, principles, and practices that are assessed in the clinical pathology board exam.

Purpose: The purpose is to provide a "strong foundation for students, residents and fellows embarking on the journey of mastering hematology" and to be a reference for preparation for the exam.

Audience: This book was written for "students, residents and fellows." It would be of interest to any pathologist or laboratory medicine practitioner in practice wanting a quick review of the subject. It may be of interest to other medical practitioners who want to gain some insight into contemporary hematology and coagulation testing (e.g., primary care physicians, specialists, etc.). The first author is relatively new to this field, but the senior author is widely published and internationally respected in the fields of clinical chemistry and toxicology.

Features: The 17 chapters cover most aspects of laboratory hematology, hematopathology, and coagulation. Each chapter follows a standard format of an introduction, explanation of standard tests/interpretations/processes, ending with a bulleted list of key points. This is a pretty comprehensive book, written in a no-frills, concise manner. I agree with the authors if the reader knows the majority of the material in this book, s/he is ready for the American Board of Pathology exam. There are no photomicrographs and only one flow cytometry figure in the book, instead readers are referred to online image banks for examples. Chapter 17, which discusses sources of error in hematology and coagulation, is relatively unique and enlightening. Experienced hematology laboratory directors would find this chapter useful.

Assessment: This is a great book to review in preparation for the clinical pathology board exam." --Valerie Ng, PhD MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
