Clinical Laboratory Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine has all the content you need to succeed in a transfusion medicine laboratory. It gives you the didactic foundation, background and tools to successfully function in a typical transfusion medicine laboratory. A blend of theoretical and practical information helps you synthesize and analyze information and, ultimately, answer questions and solve problems.
A running case study introduces each chapter and then reemerges throughout chapters, tying material together. Checkpoint questions throughout chapters let you check your understanding as you go, while chapter review questions tell you about your progress toward meeting each chapter's learning objectives.
