Description

Hematology and Coagulation: A Comprehensive Review for Board Preparation, Certification and Clinical Practice, Second Edition, takes a practical and easy-to-read approach to understanding hematology and coagulation at an appropriate level for both board preparation and refresher courses. The book bridges the gap between large textbooks and medical technology books written for laboratory technicians, providing the sufficient background in genetics, toxicology and immunology that residents and medical students need to know in order to become successful physicians. Readers will use this quick reference to understand how tests are performed and how to interpret results.

This clear and easy-to-read presentation of core topics and detailed case studies illustrates the application of hematopathology on patient care.

Key Features

  • Provides a newly updated source that's in accordance with World Health Organization guidelines on the diagnosis of hematological malignancies
  • Succinctly covers all important clinical information found in larger textbooks in an easy-to-understand manner
  • Highlights essential concepts in hematopathology in such a way that pathology fellows and clinicians can understand methods without being specialists in the field

Reviews

Praise for the first edition:
"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

"…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 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." --Valerie Ng, PhD MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
