Key Concepts in Transfusion Medicine - Print

Product Code: 222023

ISBN: 978-1-56395-962-2

As its title notes, Key Concepts in Transfusion Medicine is intended to review and re-enforce the key concepts that professionals involved in the clinical aspects of blood transfusion (including apheresis and cellular therapy) need to know. For the clinicians who order blood components and the nurses who administer them, for physicians and technologists in training to become blood bankers, and for seasoned professionals who are mentoring newcomers in the field—this book is ideal.

Key Concepts distills the current body of transfusion knowledge, presenting the material in a conversational style using language comprehensible to the nonspecialist. It highlights key ideas, facts, conclusions, and suggested readings, so readers who complete this volume should have a solid basis on which to make intelligent transfusion decisions as well a good foundation for further reading. Its rather unique format includes marginal notes that re-emphasize the most important points, whether they are good ideas or warnings to remember.

Topics covered:

  • Blood component preparation and storage
  • Blood typing and compatibility testing
  • Indications for transfusion
  • Administration of blood
