In light of recent advances in scientific understanding, this textbook provides a comprehensive yet focused guide to anemia, the most common hematologic malady in medicine. This authoritative, clinical resource covers the scientific basis of the many forms of anemia, while offering a practical approach to prognosis, diagnosis and management. Chapters cover a multitude of topics, ranging from the basic components and physiologic functions, to secondary anemias and transfusion therapy. Modern in approach, this text also looks ahead to new and innovative methodologies. With recommended treatment plans and many case studies, this heavily-illustrated book is essential reading for hematologists and oncologists. In providing a pathophysiologic context, it is also of interest to nurse practitioners, physician assistants and medical students in the field. This book provides access to an online version on Cambridge Core, which can be accessed via the code printed on the inside of the cover.
