Editorial Review(s)

4 Stars
“Wow, this book packs a wallop of high-quality information! It is deceptively small (140 pages), yet touches upon every known transfusion issue associated with medical error. The writing is crisp, clear, and concise…If you practice transfusion medicine, get it. If you are resident in training, memorize it and it will serve you and your patients well throughout your career."—Doody’s Reviews
