This unique book, written by specialists from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, bridges the disciplines of clinical pathology, internal medicine and critical care in a single volume. The Manual is divided into three sections: haematology, haemostasis and transfusion medicine. Within each section, review chapters are augmented by contributions on selected topics of interest to the practitioner. Methods of sample collection and interpretation for routine haematology, haemostatic function and bone marrow analysis are reviewed and new developments, such as flow cytometry for typing leukaemias, outlined. The diagnosis and management of a range of major infectious, immune-mediated and neoplastic diseases of the haematopopietic system are discussed. A chapter on canine babesiosis is timely, given the recent reports of cases in the UK, and a chapter is also included on the feline pathogen Haemobartonella felis. A wealth of excellent colour photographs throughout the book illustrates cell types and abnormalities, plus techniques such as blood transfusion. The range of coverage and the practical information in this Manual will render it of great value in the practice setting.
