The Second Edition of Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis continues 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 in short, focused chapters, organized by multiple hierarchical headings, short, concise paragraphs, and up to 10 suggested reading citations. This single reference is designed to cover essentially all the topics as required for 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 in coagulation testing and their incorporation into clinical practice. New coverage includes essential updates on the critical 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 essential updates in the understanding of molecular testing and pathogen reduction; two separate quality control chapters- one for blood centers and one for hospitals
