The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Haematology provides core and concise information on the entire spectrum of blood disorders affecting both adults and children. Updated for its fourth edition, it includes all major advances in the specialty, including malignant haematology, haemato-oncology,coagulation, transfusion medicine, and red cell disorders, with a brand new chapter on rare diseases. Practically focused, and specifically designed for ease-of-use, and rapid access to the information you need, this handbook is an indispensable resource on all aspects of haematology for all traineedoctors, nurses, technicians, and research professionals.The handbook is divided into clinical approach and disease-specific areas. The clinical approach section outlines various symptoms and signs in patients with blood disease to enable the reader to formulate a sensible differential diagnosis beofre embarking on investigation and treatment. Thedisease-specific section is written by four authors whose expertise covers the whole breadth of diseases included in the book. All authors have contributed to national guidelines (e.g. British Committee for Standards in Haematology, BCSH) and are experts in the evidence base that exists for eachtopic. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Haematology offers a concise and logical approach to caring for patients with diseases of the blood.
Practical Guide to Clinical Haematology stemmed from the strong belief that a doctor should learn, act and spread knowledge. Enriched with relevant case studies, high-quality images, useful diagrams, tables and flowcharts, and appropriate facts and figures, the guidebook is a must-have in the shelves of medical practitioners interested in the study of haemato-lymphoid neoplasms and haematopoietic cells and the treatment and management of leukaemia and lymphoma. The guidebook is current and updated in every sense, covering latest diagnosis methods, treatment regimes, best practices, clinical trials, and recent advances in the field of blood diseases. This is a ready-reckoner that will come in handy for practising clinical haematologists, medical graduates and postgraduates, and students preparing for competitive medical exams.
This fully illustrated text is an essential guide for trainees in Haematology and Medicine studying for higher examinations, as well as for professionals wishing to expand their knowledge or revalidate. The book contains over 100 illustrated cases covering the whole field of malignant and non-malignant haematology, including coagulation problems and infectious diseases. Each case contains a set of questions written by two Royal College examiners, with answers on the reverse page. Readers can make differential diagnoses and devise treatment plans and prognoses, before turning the page to read the experts’ detailed answers. The cases are presented in random order – just as they would be in real life – and are of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty, accompanied by hundreds of colour photomicrographs, photographs, and x-rays. This new edition is revised and updated, with new cases, images, and tables.
Thoroughly revised and updated, ABC of Clinical Haematology is an essential guide and introduction to clinical haematology and to the treatment and management of common blood related disorders. The fourth edition contains new chapters that reflect the most recent developments whilst other chapters have been extensively revised to include the new tests and treatments that are now available for certain conditions such as chronic leukaemia, multiple myeloma and bleeding disorders. With contributions from leading experts in their respective fields, this text provides an ideal reference for primary care practitioners and other healthcare professionals working with patients who have blood related problems.
Completely revised for its Third Edition, this Spiral(R) Manual is a practical quick-reference guide for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the blood. Coverage includes leukemias, disorders of lymph nodes, bleeding disorders, anemias, and platelet disorders. The book is organized by disease type, with several chapters broken down into discussions of specific disorders. Concise and easy-to-read descriptions of each disease provide clinical recommendations and essential pathophysiological information. This edition includes a new chapter on allogeneic and autologous bone marrow transplantation procedures for hematologic malignancies. All other chapters have been extensively revised and updated.
This examination companion provides a broad coverage of clinical and laboratory haematology through clinical cases, data interpretation and slide material. Clinical scenarios are accompanied by relevant investigation data to enable examination candidates to generate a clinical diagnosis and improve their examination skills. Key features: * detailed and realistic questions with fully explanatory answers test the candidates' knowledge in haematology * synopsis of current topical areas likely to be examined in vivas or written papers * comprehensive revision lists and recommended reading for both juniors and more experienced haematologists. An essential exam companion for candidates studying for the MRCP and MRCPath examinations. It will also prove a useful revision aid for senor medical students and all those studying clinical haematology.
This text on clinical haematology is aimed at undergraduates and contains all the information on this subject required for final exams in a form that should make revision easier and more efficient. Topics covered include anaemias, hypersplenism, lymphoproliferative disorders and more.
Now available in a thoroughly revised Twelfth Edition, Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology continues to be an industry leader with its ability to correlate basic science with the clinical practice of hematology. With the first edition of Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology published in 1942 clearly establishing hematology as a distinct subspecialty of Internal Medicine, the latest edition continues the influence of the Wintrobe name and helps to set this book apart from the competition.With its strong focus on the clinical aspects of hematology, the book has generated a strong following among internists and general practitioners who want a single resource to consult for their patients who present any blood related disorder. The Twelfth Edition is in full color for the first time, boasts a new editorial team, and includes expanded coverage of new medications and four new chapters on Newborn Anemias, Pathology of LHC, Spleen Tumors, and Myeloproliferative Disorders and Mast Cell Disease. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.
Provides coverage of the pathogenesis, clinical, morphologic, molecular and investigational aspects of a full range of blood disorders seen in daily practice The revised fifth edition of this renowned atlas presents readers with a comprehensive, visual guide to clinical hematology, featuring 2700 full-color photographs and figures depicting the spectrum of hematological diseases. Ranging from photographs of the clinical manifestations and key microscopic findings to diagrams of the molecular aspects of these diseases, the book provides up-to-date information of the blood diseases that clinicians encounter every day. Color Atlas of Clinical Hematology: Molecular and Cellular Basis of Disease offers the reader an understanding of normal cell machinery, and of the molecular basis for such processes as DNA and cell replication, RNA species, trafficking and splicing, protein synthesis, transcription factors, growth factor signal transduction, epigenetics, cell differentiation, autophagy, and apoptosis. The text goes on to explore how these processes are disturbed in the various diseases of the bone marrow, blood, and lymphoid systems. Helps solve difficult diagnostic challenges and covers complex principles using highly illustrative, full-color images Explores all aspects of benign and malignant hematology, including blood transfusion and coagulation with extensive coverage of the pathogenesis of common clinical entities Provides a quick and easy reference of key diagnostic issues in a comprehensive yet concise format Includes and illustrates the WHO Classification of Hematologic Malignancies Illustrates the new knowledge of the molecular basis of inherited and acquired blood diseases Color Atlas of Clinical Hematology: Molecular and Cellular Basis of Disease is the must-have resource for both trainee and practising hematologists, and for every department of hematology. "Substantially updated and now multi-authored so that all aspects of haematology are equally covered, including the newest developments in molecular biology and genomic sequencing" "There is a surplus of invention in communicating complex problems here and an admirable effort to keep the reader totally up-to-date"
