Description

"Haematology at a Glance" presents the information required by medical students in the concise, easy to learn format of the A Glance series. Starting with an explanation of normal blood cells and routine laboratory tests, the book takes the student on a whistle-stop tour of blood disorders, covering anaemias, leukaemias, lymphomas, coagulation disorders and blood transfusion in the familiar double page spread format of one page of illustrations and one page of text for each topic. In response to the integrated medical courses, the book covers all aspects of basic sciences relevant to haematology. This book will be of interest to medical students following both traditional integrated courses, and students of nursing and other health professions with an interest in haematology.

Review quote

..".It really is the best of the best, in terms of textbook design. Although it hasn't made me want to be a haematologist, it has helped me understand what they do...It really is great, if you don't believe me, pick it up and look yourself" Black Bag - Bristol Medical School Gazette/2000 "Haematology at a Glance is a valuable book for primary learning as well as for revision, and I am sure that I will refer to it for years to come. My grandfather, a retired GP, was also impressed by it, and wishes he had it when he was at medical school. Having this book to hand makes me feel less daunted at the prospect of my upcoming pathology finals. The multiple choice questions and case studies with feedback will be a good starting point for my revision. Preparing for finals is a stressful time for students, and books such as this are greatly appreciated." The Royal College of Pathologists Bulletin ."..It really is the best of the best, in terms of textbook design.
