Hematology: Clinical Principles and Applications

Front Cover
Elsevier Health Sciences, 2007 - Medical - 816 pages
2 Reviews
This comprehensive text examines normal hematopoiesis through diseases of erythroid, myeloid, lymphoid and megakaryocytic origins. Hemostasis and coagulation theory, testing, and instrumentation are also thoroughly discussed. Beautiful full-color illustrations throughout the text enhance comprehension and allow students to realistically visualize hematology concepts.

  • Detailed, full-color illustrations appear near hematology concept discussions to visually support comprehension and recognition.
  • Opening Case Studies present real-life scenarios to apply concepts presented in each chapter.
  • Learning Objectives and Review Questions work together to list expected outcomes and then test those concepts for each chapter.
  • A Bulleted Summary highlights the key concepts at the end of each chapter.
  • Hematology/Hemostasis Reference Ranges inside the front and back covers provide quick reference.


  • Three new chapters detail significant information: An Overview of Clinical Laboratory Hematology, Hematology in Selected Populations, and Monitoring Anticoagulant Therapy.
  • All chapters have been revised to feature the most current technology and research updates.
  • The included Glossary of Terms and consistent pedagogy ensure a cohesive, effective tool for learning.
  • Two well-respected editors contributed more significantly to this third edition: George Fritsma shared his expertise for the Hemostasis section and Kathy Doig managed the pedagogical features.
