Blood Science: Principles and Pathology, 1st Edition by Andrew Blann, Nessar Ahmed

By Andrew Blann, Nessar Ahmed

lood technological know-how is a comparatively new self-discipline which merges biochemistry, haematology, immunology, transfusion technology and genetics. This bringing jointly of conventional disciplines calls for a corresponding swap in schooling and coaching for healthcare scientists and Blood technology: rules and Pathology is written in line with this rising need.
 
An advent to the topic and an summary of the concepts utilized in blood technology are through a chain of chapters according to teams of analytes investigated in blood - pink blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, by way of the materials of plasma, together with waste items, electrolytes, glucose, lipids, enzymes, hormones, nutrition, medicines, poisons and others.
 
Each bankruptcy is supported through studying goals, summaries and additional info, and a spotlight is given to bankruptcy particular case reports with interpretation to illustrate how laboratory facts at the side of medical information is utilised while investigating sufferers with real or suspected illness. ultimately, a separate bankruptcy bargains extra exact case studies that combine the several points of blood science.
 
Undergraduate scholars taking blood technology modules as a part of their BSc programmes in Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences will enjoy the extent of integration among scientific biochemistry and haematology. additionally, this e-book will offer compatible preliminary examining for these scholars embarking on blood technological know-how modules on MSc programmes and should be of price to new graduates coming into the occupation and beginning their occupation in blood technology departments via supplementing practice-based education with the mandatory theoretical underpinning.

Example text

Combined. Whether or not this staggering statistic is different in primary care is not known. Therefore, healthcare professionals provide a huge resource for the practitioner facing the potential or actual patient. Blood science in human disease There are many ways to classify human disease. One is to consider three broad areas of pathology: cancer, connective tissue disease (such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and their allied conditions) and cardiovascular disease (principally heart attack and stroke, to include their risk factors of diabetes and hyperlipidaemia).

Problems may occur perhaps days after the transfusion, and include renal failure and jaundice, the latter being an indication of destruction of red cells. Post-transfusion purpura (bruising) is characterized by a severe thrombocytopenia (low platelets, which can last from 2 weeks to 2 months) and is caused by antibodies to molecules on the surface of platelets. If heavily haemorrhaging, then the transfusion of platelets may be required. Repercussions Naturally, there are many steps designed to prevent a transfusion error, such as the use of laser bar-coding so the sample can be traced from the requesting blood sample all the way back to the patient.

Its objective has changed over the years, from being a crude instrument to maintain haemoglobin at a certain level, to a therapy that saves lives. Additional changes have been the realization that a blood transfusion is far from a simple and troublefree treatment, and that it can promote damage, possibly permanently, to the health of the recipient. A further development has been the provision of blood products such as platelets, albumin and coagulation factors, provided by the National Health Service (NHS) Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) service (formerly the National Blood Transfusion Service).
