The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Haematology continues to provide
the essential knowledge needed in modern clinical practice for the
diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of the blood.
Major advances in the specialty, primarily within the malignant
haematology area, have been reflected in this thoroughly revised
new edition. Agencies such as NICE have influenced the prescribing
of chemotherapeutic and other related drugs, and there have also
been updates from the British Committee for Standards in
Haematology and other guidelines for malignant disease, thrombosis
and haemostasis. This Handbook includes the main differential
diagnoses and relevant investigations that will help junior doctors
to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. The management of the patient
is provided in a way that allows the junior to initiate treatment
while waiting for review of the patient by a senior member of
staff. A bestselling Oxford Handbook, this is the indispensable
companion for all those caring for patients with blood disorders.
