9780127597607: Blood Substitutes

Blood substitutes are solutions designed for use in patients who need blood transfusions, but for whom whole blood is not available, or is not safe. This interest has intensified in the wake of the AIDS and hepatitis C epidemics. "Blood Substitutes" describes the rationale, current approaches, clinical efficacy, and design issues for all blood substitutes now in clinical trials. The many summary diagrams and tables help make the book accessible to readers such as surgeons and blood bankers, who have less technical expertise than the biochemists and hematologists who are designing and testing blood substitutes. This book includes chapters necessary to the understanding of blood substitutes, including history, toxicity, physiology, and clinical applications. It presents detailed descriptions of the various products that have been developed and have advanced to clinical trials, and some that are in earlier states of development.

Review:

"Robert Winslow's new book Blood Substitutes, is useful in many ways. It brings together well-written summaries of the work of many of the most important investigators of the last 2 decades in the broad group of interrelated fields. Moreover, it also has some excellent chapters of scientific and medical background that provide context for the work. It also gives a historical snapshot of the thinking and attitudes of workers in the field. As an introduction to the field, this book is outstanding." - John R. Hess MD, MPH, FACPa, University of Maryland Medical Center for TRANSFUSION MEDICINE REVIEWS (2006) "There aren't too many all in one books on this subject, let alone one written this clearly, concisely, and with perspective. If you are interested in this field, get this book." - Doody's 3 Star Review by Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD, Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital (2006) "This is a serious, comprehensive, authoritative and highly readable textbook on a most relevant and challenging topic - the search for blood substitutes. ...The Editor and publishers have clearly given considerable thought to the readability as well as the academic rigour of the 46 chapters and 548 pages. In this reviewer's opinion, they have been most successful. The font and the page layouts are easy on the eye, the illustrations of good quality, and the references for each chapter are comprehensive and up to date. The potential readership for this book will undoubtedly be broadly based. This is a quality text book, and, although it is always difficult to define quality, we do recognise it when we come across it." - Professor Ken Taylor, British Heart Foundation Professor of Cardiac Surgery, University of London and Director of Cardiac Services, Hammersmith Hospital, London, UK
