Pediatric Hematology PDF: A Practical Guide
|Author||Robert Wynn and Paul Monagle|
|File size||23 MB|
This book is for all those who have contact with pediatric hematology – medical students, doctors-in-training, nurses, pharmacy staff, and patients and their families. We, as clinicians and here as authors, spend much of our time explaining the principles and practice of our subject, making it easy to understand. This book summarizes that teaching. Each chapter covers a single area of our subject and follows a standard format, including a summary of the key disease-related points. Understanding the chapter will allow the student or practitioner to understand his or her patient, the family to understand better the illness affecting their child, and the exam candidate to deal with pediatric hematology to a postgraduate level (with the book chapters mirroring international exam syllabuses). There are separate clinical scenarios that detail the practical management of several common hematologic situations, including newly diagnosed leukemia and its emergency situations, the child with pancytopenia, and the child with neutropenia and fever. These scenarios complement the didactic chapters, encouraging readers to manage effectively the more common problems in both a patient- and problem-oriented manner.
Hematology is often considered a challenging subject by students and junior medical staff alike. Using key scientific and clinical principles, this succinct guide provides a summary of modern day-to-day clinical practice in paediatric hematology. Focusing on the facts that underpin patient management, each chapter offers an initial summary of a particular paediatric hematologic condition. Several key clinical scenarios set out how common difficulties should be managed, from the neonate with line thrombosis, to the newly presenting patient with leukaemia, and the child who has suffered a stroke. Covering all hematology topics on the syllabus of the American Board of Paediatrics subspecialty examinations, this authoritative guide is ideal for both postgraduates and junior doctors, whose understanding of hematological conditions will increase greatly upon reading. This comprehensive and practical book specifically aims to equip clinicians to diagnose and manage children with hematological illness, and to support them and their families.
