Rodak's hematology : clinical principles and applications / Hematology [edited by] Elaine M. Keohane, Larry J. Smith, Jeanine M. Walenga. - Fifth edition - xiv, 898 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 29 cm.

Includes bibliographical references and index

Part I: Introduction to hematology. An overview of clinical laboratory hematology -- Safety in the hematology laboratory -- Blood specimen collection -- Care and use of the microscope -- Quality assurance in hematology and hemostasis testing -- Part II: Blood cell production, structure, and function. Cellular structure and function -- Hematopoiesis -- Erythrocyte production and destruction -- Erythrocyte metabolism and membrane structure and function -- Hemoglobin metabolism -- Iron kinetics and laboratory assessment -- Leukocyte development, kinetics, and function -- Platelet production, structure, and function -- Part III: Laboratory evaluation of blood cells Manual, semiautomated, and point-of-care testing in hematology -- Automated blood cell analysis -- Examination of the peripheral blood film and correlation with the complete blood count -- Bone marrow examination -- Body fluid analysis in the hematology laboratory -- Part IV: Erythrocyte disorders. Anemias. Red blood cell morphology and approach to diagnosis -- Disorders of iron kinetics and heme metabolism -- Anemias caused by defects of DNA Metabolism -- Bone marrow failure -- Introduction to increased destruction of erythrocytes -- Intrinsic defects leading to increased erythrocyte destruction -- Extrinsic defects leading to increased erythrocyte destruction -- nonimmune causes -- Extrinsic defects leading to increased erythrocyte destructions -- immune causes -- Hemoglobinopathies (structural defects in hemoglobin) -- Thalassemias -- Part V: Leukocyte disorders. Nonmalignant leukocyte disorders -- Cytogenetics -- Molecular diagnostics in the clinical laboratory -- Flow cytometric analysis in hematologic disorders -- Myeloproliferative neoplasms -- Myelodysplastic syndromes -- Acute leukemias -- Mature lymphoid neoplasms -- Part VI: Hemostasis and thrombosis. Normal hemostasis and coagulation -- Hemorrhagic disorders and laboratory assessment -- thrombotic disorders and laboratory assessment -- Thrombocytopenia and thrombocytosis -- Qualitative disorders of platelets and vasculature -- Laboratory evaluation of hemostasis -- Measuring antithrombotic therapies -- Hemostasis and coagulation instrumentation -- Part VII: Hematology and hemostasis in selected populations -- Pediatric and geriatric hematology and hemostasis

This book shows how to accurately identify cells, simplifies hemostasis and thrombosis concepts, and covers normal hematopoiesis through diseases of erythroid, myeloid, lymphoid, and megakaryocytic origins. This book also makes it easy to understand complementary testing areas such as flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular diagnostics. Covers everything from working in a hematology lab to the parts and functions of the cell to laboratory testing of blood cells and body fluid cells
