Pediatric Transfusion: A Physician’s Handbook, 4th edition is a concise yet comprehensive reference book for all practitioners who transfuse neonatal and pediatric populations. This book is invaluable for physicians treating patients in the hospital or those answering questions while on call in the blood bank. Written in response to questions from a variety of professionals in the field, this unique book presents, in one easy-to-use handbook, information that typically would require multiple volumes of text. Charts and tables outline information concerning volumes of blood components and doses of medication for neonatal and pediatric patients. Contributors with a wealth of practical experience share their knowledge in a resource that fits conveniently in your lab coat pocket.

This edition includes a new chapter addressing patients with special transfusion needs, including neonates, patients undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, cardiovascular surgery patients, sickle cell disease patients, and other pediatric patients who require chronic transfusion support.
