DESCRIPTION

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Haematology provides a broad-ranging overview of the study of blood, the dynamic fluid that interfaces with all organs and tissues to mediate essential transport and regulatory functions. Written with the needs of the biomedical scientist centre-stage, it provides a firm grounding in the physiology of blood, and the key pathophysiological states that can arise. It demonstrates throughout how an understanding of the physiology underpins the key investigations carried out by a biomedical scientist to forge a clear link between science and practice. The second edition includes a new chapter on acquired disorders of haemostasis. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Haematology features: For registered adopters of the book: * Figures from the book, available to download For students: * Answers to case study and self-check questions. * An interactive Digital Microscope, encouraging the exploration of tissue samples * Video podcasts including interviews with practicing biomedical scientists, and 'in the lab' footage showing biomedical science in practice
