Book Description

Transfusion Medicine: A Clinical Guide is a concise, patient-focused handbook that guides physicians in the art of blood transfusion. The book begins with a clear explanation of the simple task of ordering blood, something many physicians have never learned. The next four chapters describe evidence-based transfusion for the common patient types across the specialties. Following this are four chapters devoted to special patient groups, including obstetric, pediatric, and neonatal, each with a thorough discussion of the management of frequently encountered problems. The book concludes with a synopsis of transfusion reactions, emphasizing the role of the physician at the bedside. This handbook balances bullet-form text boxes with prose paragraphs to provide the physician with real-world advice for real patients, and also full treatment of underlying medical principles for real understanding of real patient issues.
