|3||Clinical hematology : theory and procedures / Mary L. Turgeon||Lippincott Williams & Wilkins||2005||WH100 T936c 2005||Advanced||Doody Review Services Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital) Description: This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive textbook of clinical hematology. Purpose: This book was written for clinical laboratory scientist (CLS) or clinical laboratory technologist (CLT) students. The author has succeeded admirably. Audience: This book would be ideal for CLS or CLT students, and medical students, pathology and/or laboratory medicine residents would also find this book useful. The practicing pathologist, CLS or clinical hematologist might also be interested. Features: This hardcover book consists of 27 chapters devoted to clinical hematology. This new edition contains relevant updates in clinical hematology:e.g., the WHO classification of leukemias, lymphomas and myelodysplastic disorders:as well as advances in molecular techniques applied to various hematological disorders. The chapters are quite complete and include illustrative diagrams or representative photomicrographs. Each chapter begins with a title page showing the chapter objectives and ends with a set of case studies followed by a self assessment exam. The center of the book contains a comprehensive set of color photomicrographs of virtually all hematological conditions and their appearance in the peripheral blood or bone marrow. I must admit that I would have liked to have seen more color photomicrographs scattered throughout the book, but perhaps this simply reflects the attitude of a spoiled hematologist. The last chapter on laboratory automation is particularly well written and helpful. This information is not widely available, yet represents the daily workhorses of the average clinical hematology laboratory. An endearing feature is the appendix containing protocols and recipes for manual cell counts (does anyone do these anymore?). Assessment: This is a really nice book on clinical hematology and is comparable to other accepted authoritative texts in this field. ＜Barnes&Noble.com＞|
|4||Consultative hemostasis and thrombosis / [edited by] Craig S. Kitchens, Barbara M. Alving, Craig M. Kessler.||W.B. Saunders Co||2002||WH322 C758 2002||Advanced||Doody Review Services Reviewer: Lisa Boggio, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine) Description: The consultation of thrombotic and hemorrhagic problems can be extremely difficult. The data regarding treatment of these disorders is continually changing, making accurate diagnoses and treatment decisions based on the available data a process of continually reviewing the literature. Then one must prove that these recommendations are sound to the primary care physician. This book gives hematologists the backround information needed in the form of concise reviews of pertinent topics. Purpose: This book provides in-depth information about bleeding and thrombotic disorders including basic science, treatment options, case studies, and medicolegal considerations. The authors state that the purpose is to provide in-depth information pertaining to the basic sciences to provide the foundation of clinical practice in general information, hemorrhagic processes, and thrombotic processes. This is a long-needed compilation of these topics to aid consultants in their decision making. It meets the authors' objectives well. Audience: This book is written for the attending hematologist, but students, fellows, and residents can benefit from its wealth of information. Topics pertaining to pregnancy and neurologic states are also extremely helpful to those specialties as well as to internists who see patients with all these problems. The authors are well known and respected members of the thrombosis and hemostasis community. Features: There is a complete discussion of the basic laboratory tests used commonly in thrombosic and hemostatic consultations as well as other issues including insurance, cost, and medicolegal issues. Topics are presented as a review of basic science, clinical applications, and practical applications with an effort to discuss questions that will be asked by other physicians and to discuss controversies or "grey areas" in the treatment of these disorders. Ethical issues are also well covered, an unusual and welcome addition. The book is dedicated to C. Lockard Conley, MD, who has been a great influence on both the authors and the entire hematology community. The dedication is a beautifully written testament to a great mind and a great man. Assessment: This is a valuable resource for a busy hematologist. It contains all the pertinent information and provides this information in a compact package. It is an essential part of the library of anyone who treats patients with hemorrhagic or thrombotic disorders.|
|5||Essential haematology / edited by A.V. Hoffbrand, P.A.H. Moss, J.E. Pettit||Blackwell||2006||WH120 H698e 2006||Advanced||From the Publisher "This is a major revision of the standard textbook of haematology for medical students. The book outlines the basic principles of clinical and laboratory haematology and how manifestations of blood diseases can be explained by new knowledge of the disease processes." "Essential Haematology describes how advances in molecular biology, immunology, biochemistry and physiology have increased our understanding of normal blood cell formation and function, and how they are disturbed in different diseases. The impact of molecular biology is apparent, especially in the inherited diseases of thalassaemia, haemophilia and haemostatic defects, and in the sections dealing with growth factors and leukaemogenesis. The range of treatment available for patients continues to expand and is covered in individual chapters as well as in an expanded section on bone marrow transplantation and the management of bone marrow failure. Colour is used for clarity in line diagrams, and all blood and bone marrow appearances are now illustrated by colour photographs." The book is suitable not only for medical students preparing for final examinations but also for postgraduates preparing for examinations in general medicine and haematology. It will also be a useful resource for nurses, and for other professionals involved in the care of patients with blood disease. ＜Barnes&Noble.com＞|

The previous edition was published in 1995. Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to provide a resource for both beginners and experts eager to learn about the science and practice of hematology. They have achieved this laudatory goal rather well. Audience: The book is targeted for a broad audience including both clinical hematologists and bench scientists at all levels of training. The editors are all eminent authorities in their respective fields. Features: This edition is particularly exhaustive in coverage of hematology with numerous new contributors and chapters being added. For example, the emerging area of stem cell transplantation is now extensively covered in depth. A unique feature of this textbook is the inclusion in most chapters of the contributors' preferred work-up and treatment of a clinical entity; this feature is particularly helpful to the non-expert. Also of benefit is the liberal use of charts and tables, which reinforce the main points of the text. The book could have benefited from color glossies, especially in the presentation of hematopathology slides. Assessment: This third edition is a truly remarkable textbook with a thorough yet highly readable presentation of the hematology field. While the primary purpose is to provide a standard reference, it can very well be read from cover to cover. The quality of chapters is uniformly excellent with virtually all topics covered by experts in the field. This third edition compares favorably with other hematology references, including William's Hematology and Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology. ＜Barnes&Noble.com＞|

Doody Review Services
Reviewer: Anaadriana Zakarija, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive and practical overview of clinical hematology. The previous edition was published in 1995.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an overview of common clinical hematologic conditions, both benign and malignant. There is a definite need for a good, concise portable manual. The editor and authors have succeeded in this.
Audience: According to the author, this book is geared primarily toward students and housestaff., but the manual's detail and content make it useful for an even broader audience. Internists and family physicians can use this book to update their knowledge of this rapidly changing field and answer clinical questions encountered in daily practice. It is a good reference even for physicians doing subspecialty training in hematology. The references at the end of each chapter provide good direction for further reading. Most references are primary sources, original journal articles.
Features: The manual covers both benign and malignant conditions in hematology. Disorders of each of the hematopoetic cell lines are reviewed. Most topics are introduced with a review of the basic pathophysiology and biochemistry, which is quite detailed. Clinical presentations, diagnostic methods, and treatment options are discussed. Chapters on leukemia include the most recent updated classifications. Hemostasis and coagulation is not forgotten. There is also a detailed chapter on transfusion medicine, which is very practical. New to this edition is a basic introduction to bone marrow transplantation. Important information is summarized well in tables. Most chapters include figures and tables. The one feature this book lacks is a color atlas. Just a few photographs would be necessary to round out an otherwise excellent resource.
Assessment: It is quite a task to put together a comprehensive manual of hematology in a spiral bound format that is portable. This book accomplishes that quite well. The new edition includes updates from discoveries at the molecular/genetic level to summaries of everchanging advances in treatment. This manual is a valuable resource for physicians at all levels. It can be a good introduction to the field or a concentrated review.

Doody Review Services
Reviewer: Lisa Boggio, MS, MD(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This basic primer of thrombosis and hemostasis is split into three parts: laboratory, clinical disease, and special conditions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise yet practical guide to clotting and bleeding disorders. This area can often be confusing and cause consternation among practicing hematologists.
Audience: According to the authors, this book is written for hematologists, trainee hematologists, and clinicians as a reference source when faced with problems. A basic overview is provided, but the references are scanty and there are no clear links to the references within the book.
Features: The figures and algorithms are very useful. The use of key points within each chapter which can be obtained at a glance are helpful. There is a suggested reading list, but this is not helpful when further information about a specific topic in the chapter is needed.
Assessment: This book is more appropriate for students and allied health professionals. It is too basic for practicing hematologists.
