AABB’s most popular book is a must-have resource for newcomers and seasoned professionals alike. In its 28 chapters and 100+ methods/appendices, the entire spectrum of blood collection and transfusion is addressed in detail: quality and regulatory issues, donor eligibility, component preparation, blood groups, antigen/antibody testing, clinical transfusion practice (including special patients and situations), and transfusion outcomes. Additionally, this edition captures the late-breaking changes in donor deferrals made by the FDA just before publication. Other updates to the manual include:
- Expanded PBM chapter.
- Critical update to discussion of massive transfusion.
- Emphasis on blood group antigen nomenclature.
- Added depth to relevant transfusion-transmitted diseases.
- Enhanced discussion of molecular testing.
