This popular pocket book has been updated and expanded throughout, providing a concise view of diagnostic haematology, in a convenient and practical format.
A Beginner’s Guide to Blood Cells is an introduction to normal and abnormal blood cells and blood counts for trainees, whether they be trainee laboratory scientists, medical students, trainee haematologists or trainee physicians. It may be seen as complementary to Blood Cells: a Practical Guide (3rd Edn., Blackwell Science, Oxford, 2003), from which the illustrations are drawn. Unlike Blood Cells, A Beginner’s Guide does not seek to be comprehensive.It introduces the important basic concepts, sets haematological findings in a clinical context and, in the final chapter, lets the reader test his or her own knowledge. All photographs are of blood films stained by May–Grünwald– Giemsa (MGG) stain and all have been taken at the same magni- fication so that they can be readily compared with each other
