Essentials of Haematology

by Shirish M Kawthalkar

This book is an attempt to present haematology and blood transfusion in a concise and simplified manner and is primarily intended for undergraduate students (second and final year MBBS and BDS). At the same time, it will also be useful for postgraduate students of pathology, medicine, paediatrics, and obstetrics and gynaecology. One comes across a haematological problem frequently in all branches of medicine. Haematology and blood transfusion are closely related and blood bank forms an integral and life-saving support system of a multidisciplinary hospital. A concise textbook of haematology and blood transfusion is needed for undergraduates who have to take on major subjects during their MBBS years. The coverage of haematology in available books is either too extensive or too short for their requirements. Changes are constantly occurring in haematology especially in molecular diagnostics, classification, and treatment of malignant disorders. So it updates each chapter to ensure that current knowledge and practices are reflected. Laboratory investigations play a major role in proper diagnosis and management of blood diseases. Therefore, laboratory aspects have been given relatively more coverage. As the scope of this book is limited, it has not been possible to give treatment of blood disorders in detail, especially dosages and drug schedules. During preparation of this book help has been taken from various well-known textbooks and numerous journals that have been duly acknowledged at the end of each chapter. Figures of blood and bone marrow cells have been presented in a manner that highlights the important morphological details and helps in better understanding.
