AABB brings you the first comprehensive reference on transfusion-related lung injury (TRALI), collecting all the latest research in one timely volume. Since TRALI has moved beyond the confines of the hospital transfusion service or regional blood collector, we wanted to provide an accessible tool which is both an overview and a detailed picture of the relevant clinical, laboratory, pathophysiological and donor-related issues posed by TRALI. Intended to provide transfusion medicine professionals, transfusing clinicians, and other healthcare staff with an up to date reference guide to all the key issues related to TRALI, each chapter has been written by a recognized authority in the field and is intended to summarize existing knowledge as well as to highlight areas of ongoing discussion and investigation.
- Differential diagnosis, incidence, pathophysiology, and treatment.
- Concerns in the ICU.
