Rossi's Principles of Transfusion Medicine 5th Edition 2016 by Simon
Transfusion medicine as a multidisciplinary clinical specialty allied to blood banking continues to be a dynamic and increasingly complex evolution. Patients who require blood transfusions generally fall into two categories: those requiring transfusions resulting from acute blood loss that might be associated with surgery or accident; or those requiring chronic transfusions associated with treatment for chronic anaemias, chemotherapy, or bone marrow transplant. As such transfusion medicine impacts all areas of critical care medicine, and multiple areas of chronic care.
Rossi′s Principles of Transfusion Medicine is the most comprehensive and practical reference on transfusion science and medicine available. Now updated for a fifth edition with new material on donor care including the frequency of donation and management of iron deficiency/status, patient blood management, hemovigilance, and the novel cellular therapies and stem cell transplantation. This is a key resource for specialists and trainees in transfusion medicine and blood banking, as well as physicians, nurses, and medical technologists active in the transfusion of patients.
