Reference ranges are provided for many new analytes, such as dihydrotestosterone, estrone, iodide, pregnenolone, and zinc protoporphyrin. Several new platforms have also been added, such as Dade Behring RxL, DPC IMMULITE, and Sysmex.
The seventh edition of Pediatric Reference Intervals is a valuable reference providing instant and accurate reference intervals for over 250 chemistry and hematology analytes in an alphabetized, user-friendly format. Changes to this edition include: * New analytes in the Chemistry section, including C-peptide, haptoglobin, and insulin; * New analytes in the Hematology section, including hemoglobin A, hemoglobin A2, hemoglobin F, immature platelet fraction, and reticulocyte hemoglobin equivalent; * Addition of reference intervals for steroids, free thyroxine, and free triiodothyronine measured by tandem mass spectrometry; and * Addition of reference intervals employing new platforms such as the Abbott Architectr ci8200 and the Roche cobasr 6000 analyzer. Since the first edition was published in 1995, Pediatric Reference Intervals (formerly Pediatric Reference Ranges) has been a must-have for clinical chemists, hematologists, pathologists, endocrinologists, and pediatricians. It enhances interpretation of patient results, allows comparison of test results using different methods, and helps optimize patient care. Pediatric Reference Intervals provides the following information: * Age- and sex-related reference ranges; * Methodology; * Type of specimen; * References; * Statistical basis; * Population sources; and * In most cases, SI units.

A succinct summary of the key principles and facts that guide the everyday practice of modern, clinical paediatric hematology. Covering all the information necessary for examinations in the topic, this book is ideal for postgraduates studying paediatric hematology, as well as for junior doctors in training.
Make sure you are thoroughly prepared to work in a clinical lab. Rodak’s Hematology: Clinical Principles and Applications, 6th Edition uses hundreds of full-color photomicrographs to help you understand the essentials of hematology. This new edition shows how to accurately identify cells, simplifies hemostasis and thrombosis concepts, and covers normal hematopoiesis through diseases of erythroid, myeloid, lymphoid, and megakaryocytic origins. Easy to follow and understand, this book also covers key topics including: working in a hematology lab; complementary testing areas such as flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular diagnostics; the parts and functions of the cell; and laboratory testing of blood cells and body fluid cells. UPDATED nearly 700 full-color illustrations and photomicrographs make it easier for you to visualize hematology concepts and show what you’ll encounter in the lab, with images appearing near their mentions in the text to minimize flipping pages back and forth. UPDATED content throughout text reflects latest information on hematology. Instructions for lab procedures include sources of possible errors along with comments. Hematology instruments are described, compared, and contrasted. Case studies in each chapter provide opportunities to apply hematology concepts to real-life scenarios. Hematology/hemostasis reference ranges are listed on the inside front and back covers for quick reference. A bulleted summary makes it easy for you to review the important points in every chapter. Learning objectives begin each chapter and indicate what you should achieve, with review questions appearing at the end. A glossary of key terms makes it easy to find and learn definitions. NEW! Additional content on cell structure and receptors helps you learn to identify these organisms. NEW! New chapter on Introduction to Hematology Malignancies provides and overview of diagnostic technology and techniques used in the lab.
Designed as a practical, succinct guide, for quick reference by clinicians with everyday questions, this title guides the reader through the range of approaches available for diagnosis, management, or prevention of hemorrhagic and thrombotic diseases or disorders. Provides essential practical management for all those working in the field of hemostasis and thrombosis Includes new chapters on direct oral anticoagulants, acquired inhibitors of coagulation, and expanded discussion of thrombotic microangiopathies Covers in a clear and succinct format, the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of thrombotic and haemostatic disorders Follows templated chapter formats for rapid referral, including key points and summary boxes, and further reading Highlights controversial issues and provides advice for everyday questions encountered in the clinic
Issues of thrombosis, bleeding, and transfusion are extremely common, and often complex, in critically ill patients. Haematology in Critical Care: A Practical Handbookprovidesa dependable source of expert guidance on how to handle common haematological problems seen in the critical care setting, as well as the acute care of patients with a primary haematological disorder. Full-time clinical haematologists, regularly attending on intensive care, the Editors begin with an approach to abnormal laboratory tests, following with a disease-orientated approach to topics such as coagulation and haematological malignancy. Other key topics include paediatric and neonatal care, transfusion, point of care testing and the emergency presentation of haematological disease. This title brings together two of the most highly scientific specialties in clinical practice, delivering a practical approach to these problems, and guiding the clinician through the diagnosis and management of common scenarios encountered in the ICU.
Iron deficiency is ever-present among all populations throughout the world irrespective of race, culture, or ethnic background. Even with the latest advances in medicine, improved nutrition, and the ready availability of cheap oral iron, there is still no satisfactory explanation for the widespread occurrence of iron deficiency or for the absence of an effective treatment. Iron Deficiency and Overload: From Biology to Clinical Medicine is an important new text that provides a timely review of the latest science concerning iron metabolism as well as practical, data-driven options to manage at-risk populations with the best accepted therapeutic nutritional interventions. Chapter topics reflect the excitement in current theoretical development and laboratory activity in this area. The distinguished authors address their presentations to professionals and graduate students who need to be better informed about the concepts, methodologies, and current status of the field. Iron Deficiency and Overload: From Biology to Clinical Medicine is an essential text that presents a sampling of the major issues in iron research, from the most basic research level to human applications.
