Three books for the price of one—a text, a laboratory procedures manual, and an atlas of cell morphology—all in full color! The tools your students need to quickly master the basic principles of hematology and the fundamentals of hemostasis are here. They’ll begin with an introduction to clinical hematology and the anemias, and then progress through white blood cell disorders, and hemostasis to thrombosis, and laboratory methods.
- A brand-new chapter on the examination of body fluids.
- Full color throughout.
- Complete coverage of red blood cells, white blood cells, hemostasis, and thrombosis.
- Chapters on flow cytometry and molecular diagnosis.
- Thorough discussion of anemias.
- Case histories demonstrate the link between the test and the patient to foster critical thinking.
- Laboratory methods section includes chapters on routine hematology methods, automated differential analysis, cytochemistry, and more.
- More than 900 illustrations, including 309 full-color microphotographs.
- Chapter Outline and Educational Objectives at the beginning of each chapter
- Study Questions and answers for each chapter.
- Table of normal hematologic values on the inside covers
- Glossary for easy access to definitions for medical terms unique to hematology and hemostasis.
- Summary charts provide quick review, enhancing readability
