Back to Therapeutic Apheresis: A Physician’s Handbook, 5th edition
Published jointly by AABB and the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA), this Handbook provides a thorough yet succinct account of the most commonly practiced apheresis procedures and indications for their use—including cytapheresis, therapeutic plasma exchange, red cell exchange, and selective depletion.
It contains the latest contents of the Journal of Clinical Apheresis 7th Special Issue: Guidelines on the Use of Therapeutic Apheresis in Clinical Practice—Evidence-Based Approach from the Writing Committee of the American Society for Apheresis. It also provides disease-specific content, as well as pediatric specific content, that is of great use to physicians who order or administer such therapies, as well as technical content that assists other health-care personnel who perform the actual procedures.
The goal of Therapeutic Apheresis: A Physician’s Handbook has always been to create a concise and practical guide for all members of the health-care team who support apheresis medicine, including those who wish to learn more about the specialized treatment available from therapeutic apheresis, such as clinicians who may refer patients for treatment. Although many of the guidelines refer to practice in North America, the principles and procedures described are universal in application.
