Summary Handbook of Transfusion Medicine is unique in that it provides a comprehensive and practical description of all blood products and blood cell types currently used in transfusions, their appropriate applications, pathophysiology of conditions managed by transfusion, and pathophysiology of adverse reactions. Each chapter follows a standard format including numerous tables and algorithms, with summary elements highlighted throughout by a second-color for quick reference. Sections Include: * Blood collection and testing * Blood component description * Preparation and usage * Red blood cell antigens and antibodies * Specialized component processing * Specialized transfusion situations * Transfusion-transmitted diseases * Transfusion reactions * Infectious complications of transfusion * Therapeutic apheresis and quality * Acute bleeding and massive transfusion * Transfusion of the patient with a coagulopathy * Transfusion of obstetrics, pediatric, immunocompromised, and platelet refractory patients * Up-to-date references to all aspects of transfusion medicine
