Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia, Fifth Edition

 Hematology  Comments Off on Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia, Fifth Edition
Oct 032018

Although first reported in 1973, immune heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) remains one of the most frequent and devastating adverse drug reactions encountered by physicians. This thoroughly updated fifth edition from international experts Professors Warkentin and Greinacher is the gold standard for accurate diagnosis and management of this condition. Identifying key signs and symptoms and providing clear intervention strategies―including the use of alternative anticoagulants to manage critical circumstances―this is an essential resource for all clinicians and a “must” for hematology consultants.

Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia, Fifth Edition explores:

Clinical and laboratory studies on HIT
The immune basis and pathogenesis, animal models, and laboratory testing for HIT antibodies
Clinical features, differential diagnosis, scoring systems, and frequency of HIT in diverse clinical settings, including pediatric patients
Evidence-based guidelines for recognition, treatment, and prevention
Actions that should and should not be taken after the identification of HIT
Traditional and novel pharmacotherapies, current dosing guidelines, and the advantages and limitations of alternative anticoagulants
Selection criteria from a variety of new treatment options, helping physicians determine which of these agents are safe and effective for their patients

Camel Clinical Biochemistry and Hematology

 Hematology  Comments Off on Camel Clinical Biochemistry and Hematology
Sep 252018

This work brings together a wealth of data regarding the reference values and factors of variation in biochemical parameters used by camel veterinarians and scientists to determine these animals’ nutritional and clinical status. It also explores several technical aspects involved in determining these parameters, sampling procedures, and essential elements in the interpretation of the results. Though many texts are available on small and large ruminants, much less is known about species confined to the marginal zones of tropical and Mediterranean countries, such as camels. This book addresses precisely this research gap, on the one hand by presenting an extensive review of the literature, and on the other by synthesizing the outcomes of the authors’ numerous previous works.
In veterinary medicine, blood tests to help diagnose diseases in cattle were first proposed nearly a century ago, but were mainly developed in the 1960s, initially at specialized research or veterinary services laboratories, and eventually, with the advent of new equipment and the miniaturization of the analyzers, finding their way into veterinarians’ cabinets. Beyond their diagnostic value, veterinary surgeons and zootechnicians also speculated on the potential use of blood tests to evaluate animals’ nutritional status. Thus, a whole range of analyses are now proposed to the stakeholders responsible for animal health. Such analyses could help to define a metabolic profile, which would offer a valuable decision-making tool for experts and researchers alike.
