Basic of blood management, Second Edition
Descriptif détaillé : Basic of blood management, Second Edition
As in the first edition, this informative and practical introduction to blood management explains how to improve medical outcomes by avoiding undue blood loss, enhancing the patient's own blood, and improving tolerance of anemia and coagulopathy until any of the underlying conditions are successfully remedied. While the first edition considered transfusion avoidance as a very important outcome improvement, this second edition shifts its focus from this aspect of improving outcomes to the even more important reduction of morbidity and mortality.
Meeting the need for a book covering the concepts of blood management as a trend towards multidisciplinary blood management, this new edition is an important resource, providing healthcare professionals with a tool to develop background knowledge in blodd management, its organization, methods and tools.
Basics of Blood Management, 2nd Edition spans many of the medical specialties that encounter blood and transfusions as part of their daily practice. It is intended for training and practising clinicians, and will stimulate debate and discussion, as well as aide in tailoring individual care plans for different patients.
