What others are saying about Essentials of Transfusion Medicine:
“Dr. Plapp's excellent and concise guide deserves a place in the lab coat pocket of all physicians; it will be consulted frequently.”“I recommend this book as a thorough reference for all transfusion services and for reference labs offering consultation services to area blood banks.”
"This book is the one kept in the car and at the side of the bed when I'm on call. That should say it all."
"As transfusion medicine becomes more complex, it is impossible for clinicians, or even clinical pathologists, to keep abreast of the indications, risks, and expected benefits of blood transfusion. This manual is indispensable for all physicians who prescribe transfusions, for physicians in training, and for pathologists and pathology residents taking call for the Blood Bank. Dr. Plapp's excellent and concise guide deserves a place in the lab coat pocket of all physicians; it will be consulted frequently."
