Summary

 Easy to read.“Very easy to follow. Made it easy to understand difficult topics!”—Amazon Reviewer


I highly recommend this book.
“… straight forward and I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a solid understanding of the most important concepts behind the tests performed in a modern hematology laboratory. Some textbooks today make it difficult for hematology students and lab professionals alike to figure out what it is that they "really need to know" to be effective and competent in the lab. Hematology in Practice addresses exactly this problem. In addition, this book will give a student an understanding that is more than good enough to pass general and categorical licensing exams.”—Michael B., Amazon Reviewer

Basic principles of hematology made memorable. Build a solid understanding of hematology in the context of practical laboratory practice and principles. Visual language, innovative  case studies, role-playing troubleshooting cases, and laboratory protocols bring laboratory practice to life.  

Superbly organized, this reader-friendly text breaks a complex subject into easy-to-follow, manageable sections. Begin with the basic principles of hematology; discover red and white blood cell disorders; journey through hemostasis and disorders of coagulation; and then explore the procedures needed in the laboratory.
