Haematology Nursing is a comprehensive handbook, with a nursing focus, on the care and management of patients with haematological disorders. Divided into four sections, the first provides an introduction to haematology, looking at haemopoiesis, immunology and genetics. Section two covers non-malignant haematology, including anaemia, haemoglobinopathies and haemochromatosis.

Section three explores the pathophysiology, care and management of Myeloproliferative and Lymphoproliferative Disorders, including leukaemia, myeloma, and lymphoma. The final section provides information on various nursing care interventions, including blood transfusion, venous access devices, and palliative care.

Aimed principally at nurses working in a variety of settings including haematology/oncology wards, medical/haematology wards, specialist bone marrow transplant centres, and community settings, Haematology Nursing is an essential, and much needed reference guide.

Neonatal hematology is a fast-growing field, and hematologic problems occur in the majority of sick neonates. Focusing on clinical issues and problem-solving, this is a fully revised and updated revision of a successful practical guide to the pathogenesis, recognition and management of hematologic problems in the neonate.

The second edition begins with chapters on the history of neonatal hematology, hematopoiesis, and the immunologic system. Subsequent sections are devoted to erythrocyte disorders, platelet disorders, leucocyte disorders, immunologic disorders and hemostatic disorders. New to this edition are an expanded coverage of neonatal oncology, cord blood utilization, neonatal screening, prenatal diagnosis and hyperbilirubinemia. Written by practising physicians specializing in pediatric hematology, neonatology, immunology, pediatric infectious disease and transfusion medicine, this is an essential text for pediatric hematologists, NICU specialists, neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners.

Pediatric Hematology-Oncology in Countries with Limited Resources: A Practical Manual

 Hematology, Oncology, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Hematology-Oncology in Countries with Limited Resources: A Practical Manual
Dec 292018

Typically, manuals of pediatric hematology-oncology are written by specialists from high-income countries, and usually target an audience with a sub-specialist level of training, often assisted by cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment facilities. However, approximately 80% of new cases of cancer in children appear in mid- and low-income countries. Almost invariably, general practitioners or general pediatricians without special training in oncology will look after children with malignancies who enter the health care system in these countries. The diagnostic facilities are usually limited, as are the treatment options. The survival figures in these conditions are somewhere below 20%, while in high-income countries they are in the range of 80% for many childhood cancers. Pediatric Hematology-Oncology in Countries with Limited Resources is the only book of its kind to provide specific guidance applicable to limited resource settings and builds up from the foundation of general practitioner or general pediatrician competence. Written and edited by leaders in the field, this manual educates physicians on the essential components of the discipline, filtered through the experience of specialists from developing countries, with immediate applicability in the specific healthcare environment in these countries.​

Imagine that a certain Science has managed to identify and describe, in details, all the existing human personalities, all the existing human types: mode of thinking, special emotions and mode of behavior; how, each personality, tends to behave in affairs, sexuality, family, politics, religion, profession, etc.; in addition, what kind of physical and psychological diseases, each personality, tends to develop.

Wouldn’t that be wonderful!
Moreover, imagine that this identification has been done in an objective and scientific way. That is, not only through clinical observation, but, on top of that, through the scientific methodology of the Double Blind Trial. To add, imagine that this Science has succeeded in finding a way to minimize the extreme features of each personality, therefore, contributing to the prevention, as well as, to the cure of the above mentioned physical and psychological diseases, in the most harmless and natural way.

Well, this isn’t some kind of imagination! This is a reality! It’s the reality of the everyday clinical practice of the Homeopathic Medicine and, especially, of the Classical Miasmatic Constitutional Homeopathy, developed by the author. In the volumes of this book, the writer describes in a scientific, yet fascinating and simple way, the Constitutional Pictures that affect all of us. Would you like to know, in the deepest way, yourself, your companion, children, parents and friends? Then, you, definitely, must read this book!
