Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis: Clinical and Laboratory Aspects

This new guide in transfusion medication and hemostasis goals to mix medical and laboratory info from fields that have excessive levels of overlap into one concise, easy-to-use notebook. This accomplished reference consultant could have the intensity of data to be important to all physicians who order and administer blood elements and really good components for hemostatic abnormalities, in addition to those that seek advice and deal with those frequently very unwell sufferers.

Atlas of SPECT-CT

The sphere of nuclear drugs has developed swiftly lately, and one extremely important element of this growth has been the advent of hybrid imaging platforms. PET-CT has already received common attractiveness in lots of medical settings, particularly inside of oncology, and now SPECT-CT grants to emulate its good fortune.

Basophil and Mast Cell Degranulation and Recovery

Basophils and mast cells are related yet precise secretory cells with a well-documented position in immediate-hypersensitivity reactions. The presence of those cells in a number of cellphone­ mediated allergic reaction reactions, in tissues of a number of ailments, and as an element of the host response to harm and service in several conditions is widely known.

Haematology Nursing

26 Because of the vagaries associated with BT techniques, standardized, automated techniques have been designed to examine and simulate the platelet contribution to primary hemostasis in a more specific manner. The Platelet Function Analyzer (PFA)-100 (Dade-Behring, Marburg, Germany) has been developed as an automated, rapid technique designed to assess platelet adhesion and aggregation. In many hospitals, it has replaced BT as the predominant assessment tool used to screen patients for their bleeding potential.

These assays are more sensitive than clotting time– based assays and are not interfered with by LAs. Because of their increased cost per assay, they have not yet pervaded most of the coagulation laboratories in the United States. Shortened PTTs and PTs have little clinical significance and probably reflect elevated FVIII activity levels or other clotting factors activated as a result of DIC or the presence of pregnancy (and its complications), use of estrogen hormones, active or occult thrombosis, carcinoma, or Tests for Lupus Anticoagulants (LA) When mixing studies indicate the persistence of a prolonged PTT, the presence of an LA should be confirmed with assays that show that the antibody is directed against the phospholipid component of coagulation.

Commercially available agents most often used to activate the clotting process in PT consist of standardized mixtures of tissue factor/thromboplastin (extracted from rabbit brain) and calcium chloride; however, preparations of recombinant human tissue factor mixed with synthetic phospholipids are becoming more popular because they are free of the contaminating coagulation factor proteins present in tissue factor extracts. This increases the sensitivity of the PT assay for factor deficiencies. 37 Because numerous tissue factor/thromboplastin reagents possess various procoagulant properties, PT results may vary widely from one laboratory to another—even for the same plasma specimen.
