The fifth edition of this practical textbook on transfusion medicine has been thoroughly revised with the latest in scientific and technological developments and edited by a leading team of international expert haematologists, including a new co–editor Mark H. Yazer MD.

The concise and comprehensive content covers the diverse field of transfusion medicine including; the fields of haemostasis, immunology, transplantation and cellular engineering; apheresis technology; treatment using recombinant and plasma–derived plasma proteins; and the daily use of blood components in clinical medicine. Such is the reach of the field that without transfusion resources ensuring the provision of a safe blood supply very little of modern surgery and medicine could be accomplished. The seven sections of this book guide the reader systematically through the key areas of the speciality; principles of transfusion medicine; complications of transfusion; practice in blood centres and hospitals; clinical transfusion practice; patient blood management; cellular and tissue therapy and organ transplantation; and development of the evidence base for transfusion.

This book offers:

  • A succinct and user–friendly resource with key points, charts and algorithms
  • Discussion of practice in blood centres and hospitals, including regulatory aspects, transfusion safety, production and storage, donor care, and blood transfusion in a global context
  • Coverage of cellular and tissue therapies and organ transplantation, including stem cell collection and haematopoietic stem cell processing and storage
  • Review of the development of the evidence base for transfusion medicine
  • Content on the alternatives to transfusions, and practical clinical advice

This book is ideal for trainee or resident haematologists revising for examinations and as a reference source for clinical and scientific staff working in the field of transfusion medicine.
