Blood Science: Principles and Pathology by Andrew Blann,Nessar Ahmed

By Andrew Blann,Nessar Ahmed

Blood technology is a comparatively new self-discipline which merges biochemistry, haematology, immunology, transfusion technological know-how and genetics. This bringing jointly of conventional disciplines calls for a corresponding swap in schooling and coaching for healthcare scientists and Blood technological know-how: ideas and Pathology is written according to this rising need.

An creation to the topic and an outline of the strategies utilized in blood technological know-how are by means of a chain of chapters in line with teams of analytes investigated in blood - pink blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, by way of the materials of plasma, together with waste items, electrolytes, glucose, lipids, enzymes, hormones, foodstuff, medications, poisons and others.

Each bankruptcy is supported by means of studying pursuits, summaries and extra details, and a spotlight is given to bankruptcy particular case reports with interpretation to illustrate how laboratory information along side medical info is utilised while investigating sufferers with genuine or suspected illness. ultimately, a separate bankruptcy bargains extra certain case stories that combine different elements of blood science.

Undergraduate scholars taking blood technological know-how modules as a part of their BSc programmes in Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences will delight in the extent of integration among medical biochemistry and haematology. moreover, this ebook will supply compatible preliminary analyzing for these scholars embarking on blood technological know-how modules on MSc programmes and may be of price to new graduates getting into the career and beginning their profession in blood technological know-how departments by means of supplementing practice-based education with the mandatory theoretical underpinning.

This publication is licensed by way of the Institute of Biomedical Science and written through its specialist writers, lots of whom paintings at the Institute’s advisory panels.
