Atlas of Hematology discusses a range of haematological disorders and their management. The criteria for diagnosis are listed in tables for ease of use, along with peripheral smear and bone marrow examples, and biopsy samples illustrating normal and abnormal results for both haematological and non-haematological diseases.

Topics covered include Anaemias, Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes, Platelet Disorders, Leukemia, Myelofibrosis and Stem Cell Transplant. Well-illustrated clinical photographs and microphotographs of some more common disorders are included.

Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis is a manual-style book that links transfusion medicine and hemostasis to laboratory methods and diagnostic tests engaged in routine and specialized coagulation laboratories. The book is divided into two main parts with chapters that are brief and readable.
The first main part of the book is subdivided into blood banking and transfusion medicine. Under blood banking, the chapters cover blood collection, donation process, component manufacturing, donor testing and storage; transfusion-medicine chapters examine the components for transfusion, pre-transfusion immunohematology testing, blood groups, blood products and their modifications, approaches to transfusion therapy in specific clinical settings, and transfusion reactions and complications. In addition, chapters that talk about apheresis, cellular therapy, and tissue banking in the hospital setting are included.
Hemostasis, the second main part of the book, is subdivided into three sections. The first section, clinical coagulation, includes chapters about neonatal thrombocytopenia, inherited platelet function disorders, immune thrombocytopenia, immune-mediated coagulopathies, congenital bleeding disorders, and acquired bleeding disorders. The second section relates to laboratory testing of coagulation, with chapters about laboratory assessments of platelet disorders, von Willebrand disease, coagulation factor disorders, fibrinogen and fibrinolysis, tests for hypercoagulable state and for activation of the coagulation system, and laboratory support for anticoagulation. The third section discusses coagulation factor products.
This book will be valuable for the education of trainees, practitioners, and future leaders in these fields.

Safe and effective prescribing is a cornerstone of proper patient care. There has in recent years been a significant increase in the numbers of healthcare professionals able to prescribe; however, sources of drug information tend to focus on only one area of prescribing. The Oxford Handbook of Practical Drug Therapy links practical information about how to use medicines with concise details about the pharmacology of a drug, and the principles of clinical pharmacology that govern its action. The overall structure of this handbook is similar to the UK national formulary, with topics on each drug arranged broadly by therapeutic category. When a drug has several different uses, these are brought together in a single topic, allowing the reader to appreciate its full range of actions, whether therapeutic or adverse. Each drugs topic provides information in a clearly laid out and standardised form, and includes a graphical representation of the pharmacological actions of the drug, and its potential uses, practical advice on a drug's major indications, a list of common and serious adverse effects, major drug-drug interactions, practical advice on monitoring for therapeutic and adverse effects, and what to tell the patient. Teaching points throughout the text draw out pharmacological principles, so that readers can increase their basic knowledge by linking theory with practical examples. Also included are several boxes giving guidance on the approach to therapy of specific diseases an clinical problems. In some cases, algorithms for the treatment of medical emergencies are given, and this new edition features case histories throughout the text to illustrate the issues one may face in practical prescribing. The Oxford Handbook of Practical Drug Therapy brings together for the first time in a single book really practical information on safe prescribing, with the background knowledge that underpins clinical pharmacology. Fully revised with new guidance and important safety information, this book is aimed primarily at medical students and trainees, it will also be invaluable to family doctors, clinical pharmacists, and nurse prescribers.

This comprehensive book, lavishly illustrated with over 700 colour pictures, addresses the subject of bone in internal medicine. It is based on biopsies of bone and first describes the normal range of physiological findings in iliac crest biopsies in young, middle-aged and elderly individuals.
The book then deals systematically with the osseous disorders most frequently encountered in internal medicine, and some that would be considered in the differential diagnosis. Numerous up-to-date references are included. The clinical applications of biopsies of bone are emphasized as well as their clinical interpretation; sections on histomorphometry and functional aspects of bone cells are also included.
The book will be of particular interest to specialists in internal medicine, endocrinology, nephrology, haematology and oncology, as well as being a bench manual for the practising pathologist.
