Blood Transfusion in Clinical Practice focuses on the application of blood transfusion in different clinical settings.
The text has been divided into five sections.
The first section includes a chapter describing the basic principles of ABO blood group system in blood transfusion.
The second section discusses the use of transfusion in various clinical settings including orthopedics, obstetrics, cardiac surgery, etc.
The third section covers transfusion transmitted infections, while section four describes alternative strategies to allogenic blood transfusion.
The last section speculates over immunomodulatory effects of blood transfusion.
