The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Haematology provides core and concise information on the entire spectrum of blood disorders affecting both adults and children. Updated for its fourth edition, it includes all major advances in the specialty, including malignant haematology, haemato-oncology, coagulation, transfusion medicine, and red cell disorders, with a brand new chapter on rare diseases. It is divided into clinical approach and disease-specific areas.
Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice
A blood film —or peripheral blood smear —is a thin layer of blood smeared on a glass microscope slide and then stained in such a way as to allow the various blood cells to be examined microscopically.
Blood films are examined in the investigation of hematological blood disorders and are routinely employed to look for blood parasites , such as those of malaria and filariasis. Blood films are made by placing a drop of blood on one end of a slide, and using a spreader slide to disperse the blood over the slide's length.
The aim is to get a region, called a monolayer, where the cells are spaced far enough apart to be counted and differentiated. The monolayer is found in the "feathered edge" created by the spreader slide as it draws the blood forward. The slide is left to air dry, after which the blood is fixed to the slide by immersing it briefly in methanol. The fixative is essential for good staining and presentation of cellular detail. After fixation, the slide is stained to distinguish the cells from each other.
Routine analysis of blood in medical laboratories is usually performed on blood films stained with Romanowsky stains such as Wright's stain , Giemsa stain , or Diff-Quik. Wright-Giemsa combination stain is also a popular choice. These stains allow for the detection of white blood cell , red blood cell , and platelet abnormalities.
Hematopathologists often use other specialized stains to aid in the differential diagnosis of blood disorders.
After staining, the monolayer is viewed under a microscope using magnification up to x. Individual cells are examined and their morphology is characterized and recorded. Blood smear examination is usually performed in conjunction with a complete blood count in order to investigate abnormal results or confirm results that the automated analyzer has flagged as unreliable. Microscopic examination of the shape, size, and coloration of red blood cells is useful for determining the cause of anemia.
Disorders such as iron deficiency anemia , sickle cell anemia , megaloblastic anemia and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia result in characteristic abnormalities on the blood film. The proportions of different types of white blood cells can be determined from the blood smear.
This is known as a manual white blood cell differential. The white blood cell differential can reveal abnormalities in the proportions of white blood cell types, such as neutrophilia and eosinophilia , as well as the presence of abnormal cells such as the circulating blast cells seen in acute leukemia.
Modern complete blood count analyzers can provide an automated white blood cell differential, but they have a limited ability to differentiate immature and abnormal cells, so manual examination of the blood smear is frequently indicated.
Blood smear examination is the preferred diagnostic method for certain parasitic infections, such as malaria and babesiosis. The preferred and most reliable diagnosis of malaria is microscopic examination of blood films, because each of the four major parasite species has distinguishing characteristics. Two sorts of blood film are traditionally used. From the thick film, an experienced microscopist can detect all parasites they encounter. Microscopic diagnosis can be difficult because the early trophozoites "ring form" of all four species look identical and it is never possible to diagnose species on the basis of a single ring form; species identification is always based on several trophozoites.
The biggest pitfall in most laboratories in developed countries is leaving too great a delay between taking the blood sample and making the blood films. As blood cools to room temperature, male gametocytes will divide and release microgametes : these are long sinuous filamentous structures that can be mistaken for organisms such as Borrelia. This problem is made worse if anticoagulants such as heparin or citrate are used.
The anticoagulant that causes the least problems is EDTA. Romanowsky stain or a variant stain is usually used. Some laboratories mistakenly use the same staining pH as they do for routine haematology blood films pH 6. Immunochromatographic capture procedures rapid diagnostic tests such as the malaria antigen detection tests are nonmicroscopic diagnostic options for the laboratory that may not have appropriate microscopy expertise available.

In the relatively short period since the first edition of Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice was published in , there have been significant advances in understanding the biology of normal and abnormal hematopoiesis at both the cellular and molecular levels. These advances have had considerable impact on clinical hematology both in diagnosis and treatment. In recognition of this rapidly expanding knowledge base, the editors of Hematology have prepared a second edition.
The phlebotomist should not prelabel tubes; tubes should be labeled after the blood is drawn and before leaving the patient. Test results that can be affected by this selection of tubes and order of draw include the prothrombin time PT , potassium, and type and screen. Is the slide right side up? In advanced liver disease, poor liver circulation causes pressure in the portal circulation. This enlarges the spleen splenomegaly. In most cases, platelet function is reduced.

Immunizations are safe and effective and represent a cornerstone of public health. They make a significant contribution to the control of infectious diseases in Canada.
