A concise full-color review of the mechanisms of blood diseases and disorders – based on a Harvard Medical School hematology course2015 Doody's Core Title!4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!"This is a superb book. Deceptively small, yet packs a wallop. The emphasis on principles instead of practice is welcome....The text is clear, concise, and surprisingly approachable for what could have been a very dense and dry discussion. I could not put this book down and read it entirely in one sitting. When was the last time anyone found a hematology textbook so riveting?"--Doody's Review ServiceHematological Pathophysiology is a well-illustrated, easy-to-absorb introduction to the physiological principles underlying the regulation and function of blood cells and hemostasis, as well as the pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for the development of blood disorders.

The book is logically divided into four sections: Anemias and Disorders of the Red Blood Cell, Disorders of Hemostasis and Thrombosis, Disorders of Leukocytes, and Transfusion Medicine; it opens with an important overview of blood and hematopoietic tissues. FeaturesSuccinct, to-the-point coverage that reflects current medical educationMore than 200 full-color photographs and renderings of disease mechanisms and blood diseasesEach chapter includes learning objectives and self-assessment questionsNumerous tables and diagrams encapsulate important information Incorporates the feedback of 180 Harvard medical students who reviewed the first draft -- so you know you’re studying the most relevant material possible
