Pediatric Hematology: A Practical Guide 1st Edition

[amazon template=image&asin=1107439361]

Hematology is often considered a challenging subject by students and junior medical staff alike. Using key scientific and clinical principles, this succinct guide provides a summary of modern day-to-day clinical practice in paediatric hematology. Focusing on the facts that underpin patient management, each chapter offers an initial summary of a particular paediatric hematologic condition. Several key clinical scenarios set out how common difficulties should be managed, from the neonate with line thrombosis, to the newly presenting patient with leukaemia, and the child who has suffered a stroke. Covering all hematology topics on the syllabus of the American Board of Paediatrics subspecialty examinations, this authoritative guide is ideal for both postgraduates and junior doctors, whose understanding of hematological conditions will increase greatly upon reading. This comprehensive and practical book specifically aims to equip clinicians to diagnose and manage children with hematological illness, and to support them and their families.

Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology Thirteenth Edition

[amazon template=image&asin=1451172680]

With the 13th edition of Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology, this new edition once again bridges the gap between the clinical practice of hematology and the basic foundations of science.

Broken down into eight parts, this book provides readers with a comprehensive overview of: Laboratory Hematology, The Normal Hematologic System, Transfusion Medicine, Disorders of  Red Cells, Hemostasis and Coagulation; Benign Disorders of Leukocytes, The Spleen and/or Immunoglobulins; Hematologic Malignancies, and Transplantation. Within these sections, there is a heavy focus on the morphological exam of the peripheral blood smear, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and other tissues.

With the knowledge about gene therapy and immunotherapy expanding, the book includes new, up-to-date information about the process and application of these therapies. Likewise, the editors have  shed a completely new light on the process of stem cell transplantation in regards to both malignant and benign disorders, graft versus host disease, and the importance of long-term follow-up of transplantation survivors.

The textbook features an online, interactive companion that has a reference list for each chapter as well as two appendices one reviewing the clusters of differentiation (CD) molecules and one that reviews lab values and photomicrographs of the blood of animals.

Along with these tools, the authors plan to post updates online when they are particularly pertinent or important.

Greater emphasis on molecular genetics and flow cytometry
Increased number of hematopathology illustrations
Expanded coverage of Transplantation
Online companion with reference features and relevant updates



Hematologic Malignancies: Acute Leukemias

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3540723021]

Better therapy of acute leukemias depends ultimately on better understanding of the distinction between leukemic and normal progenitor cells. This hugely important new book describes the current knowledge of acute leukemia biology and discusses new classification systems that have arisen as a result of emerging insights into pathogenesis. Estey, Faderl and Kantarjian, who all work at the respected Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, USA, examine in detail advances in the treatment of particular types of acute leukemia. Their book also covers the management of acute leukemia in general as well as the development of new therapies. This book will be extremely useful to clinicians.



Flow Cytometry in Neoplastic Hematology: Morphologic-Immunophenotypic Correlation, Third Edition 3rd Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1498775020]

This third edition is the product of the author’s 25 years of experience with flow cytometry; although it covers the wide spectrum of hematopoietic tumors, the focus remains on most important clinical diagnoses, such as acute promyelocytic leukemia, identification of blasts, identification of clonal B-cell population, differentiating mature versus immature T-cell proliferations, deferential diagnosis between hematogones and B-ALL or distinction between chronic and acute monocytic proliferations. All hematopathologists and neoplastic hematologists will find this an important resource for keeping up to date with developments in clinical practice.



Patient-specific Hemodynamic Computations: Application to Personalized Diagnosis of Cardiovascular Pathologies 1st ed. 2017 Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319568523]

Hemodynamic computations represent a state-of-the-art approach for patient-specific assessment of cardiovascular pathologies. The book presents the development of reduced-order multiscale hemodynamic models for coronary artery disease, aortic coarctation and whole body circulation, which can be applied in routine clinical settings for personalized diagnosis. Specific parameter estimation frameworks are introduced for calibrating the parameters of the models and high performance computing solutions are employed to reduce their execution time. The personalized computational models are validated against patient-specific measurements.

The book is written for scientists in the field of biomedical engineering focusing on the cardiovascular system, as well as for research-oriented physicians in cardiology and industrial players in the field of healthcare technologies.
