New to this edition

Designed for both MLT and MLS students, the text provides a beneficial and economical resource for laboratory science programs that offer both levels of instruction and includes multiple unique learning tools within each chapter that allow the reader to analyze, synthesize, understand and evaluate the information:

  • New! This edition is thoroughly updated to include the latest in advances in laboratory medicine. 
  • New! New chapters added on evaluation of blood cells: “The CBC and Peripheral Smear Examination” and “The Platelet”. This presents some basic information early in the book that will help the student understand material in other chapters.
  • Revised! Substantially revised chapters include: “Molecular Analysis of Hematopoietic Diseases” and “Body Fluids”. 
  • Revised! The “Intro to Hemolytic Anemia” and “Intro to Anemia” chapters have been combined to provide students with a solid introduction to the subject of anemia before they get to the specifics of hemolytic anemia.
  • Updated! The “Leukocyte” chapter has been divided into two chapters: “The Leukocyte: Granulocytes and Monocytes” and “The Leukocyte:  Lymphocytes”, making the information more accessible, and manageable.
  • Updated! Chapter 3 is now “Structure and Function of Hematopoietic Organs” and Chapter 4 is “Hematopoiesis”, creating a more logical flow of content for the reader.
  • Updated! The chapter on “Body Fluids” has been updated and reorganizedwith more information on performing body fluid analyses.  Semen and amniotic fluid have been added.
  • Updated! Hemostasis automated testing is now located in the hemostasis procedure chapter. Now the hematology automation chapter includes only hematology instrumentation. Information on the newest analyzers is included.
  • Objectives are comprised of two levels: Level I for basic or essential information and Level II for more advanced information.  These objectives were reviewed by clinical (medical) laboratory technician (MLT) educators who made recommendations that aimed the Level I objectives to their students. Medical laboratory scientist (MLS) educators may expect their students to meet both Level I and Level II objective requirements.
  • Case Studyis a running case feature that first appears at the beginning of each chapter and focuses the student's attention on the subject matter that the chapter will cover.  Throughout the chapter at appropriate places, additional information on the case may be given such as laboratory test results, followed by questions.  The questions relate to the material presented in preceding sections.  BackgroundBasics alert students to material that should be learned or reviewed before starting the chapter.  In most cases it refers readers to previous chapters to help them find the material if they want to review it.
  • Overview gives the reader an idea of the chapter content and organization.
  • Key Termsalert the student to important terms used in the chapter and found in the glossary.
  • Each chapter offers students a variety of opportunities to assess their knowledge and ability to apply it.
  • A Summary concludes the text portion of each chapter in order to help the student bring all the material together.
  • Includes a unique chapter not found in other hematology texts. “Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation” that explains the entire procedure from collection to infusion of the product.
  • The Appendix includes two summary tables for quick and easy reference.  One is a summary of hematopoietic diseases with diagnosis, phenotype, chromosome translocation and genotypic finding.  Another table with hematopoietic condition, genetic mutation and molecular diagnostic procedure (s) commonly used to identify the mutation.
  • Cytogenetics is a stand alone chapter emphasizing the important role of this analysis in the study of  hematopoietic diseases.

Each chapter features a consistent format with a striking visual design, making it easy for the reader to find information on each topic:

  • Colorful symbolsare used throughout each chapter to help the student quickly cross-reference from the tables and figures to the text.
  • A symbol is also used when referring the student to another chapter.
  • Figures and Tablesare used liberally to help students, especially visual learners, organize and conceptualize information. All tables and figures can be downloaded by instructors at the text’s companion website.
  • Ample microphotographsdisplayed throughout the book are typical of those found in a particular disease or disorder. Note: Students should be aware that cell variations occur and that blood and bone marrow findings will not always mimic those found in textbooks.
  • Algorithms (Critical pathways, reflex testing pathways) are used when appropriate to help illustrate effective, cost-efficient use of laboratory tests in diagnosis.

Complemented by a variety of ancillary materials designed to help instructors be more efficient and effective and students more successful: 

  • Instructor’s Resource Manual includes suggested learning activities for each chapter, test item writing guide, introduction to Bloom’s taxonomy, crossword puzzles, word finds, sample syllabi, and a transition grid to assist instructors in correlating the content of other hematology texts to this text.
  • Instructor’s Resource DVD-ROM is available upon adoption of the text and gives the instructor access to a number of powerful tools in an electronic format.  The following materials are included on the DVD-ROM:
  • Test Bank includes questions to allow instructors to design customized quizzes and exams using the award-winning TestGen test building engine. The TestGen wizard guides you through the steps to create a simple test with drag-and-drop or point-and-click transfer.  You can select test questions either manually or randomly and use online spellchecking and other tools to quickly polish your test content and presentation.  You can save your test in a variety of formats both local and on a network, print up to 25 variations of a single test, and publish your tests in an online course.
  • PowerPoint Lectures contain key discussion points and color images for each chapter.  This feature provides dynamic, fully designed, integrated lectures that are ready to use, allowing instructors to customize the materials to meet their specific course needs.  These ready-made lectures will save you time and ease the transition into use of the text.
  • Image Library contains all of the images from the text.  You have permission to copy and paste these images into PowerPoint lectures, printed documents, or Website as long as you are using Clinical Laboratory Hematology as your course textbook.
  • Electronic version of the Instructor’s Resource Manual in PDF and Word formats can be accessed.
  • Bonus image library contains microphotographs of normal and abnormal blood cells filed by chapter.  These can be downloaded into your digital presentations or used on password protected course Websites.
  • Companion Website (www.pearsonhighered.com/mckenzie) features an online study guide that is completely unique to the market. In addition to providing an array of assessment quizzes, critical thinking questions, and case studies corresponding to each chapter of the book, the website presents additional figures, tables and information for the reader. The quizzes and critical thinking questions have been developed within an automatic grading system that provides users with instant scoring once users submit their answers. Each student’s quiz results can be emailed directly to the educator if desired. For procedure chapters, the website also includes detailed laboratory procedures that can be adapted printed for use in the laboratory.
