The veterinary technician who performs a hematologic examination is often the only one who sees and handles the patient's blood. To produce accurate test results- ones that will yield invaluable diagnostic information- the technician must not only be able to run the tests by must understand why they are being performed.
Hematology Techniques and Concepts for Veterinary Technicians introduces:
* The basics of blood composition, with detailed descriptions of red and white cell blood morphology and function;
* The sites of formation and distribution of the cellular elements within the body and how these can be altered under physiologic and pathologic conditions;
* Step-by-step procedures for numerous common laboratory tests and basic information on the significance of the results;
* The immune system, to help technicians understand the interrelationships of leukocytes, the major cells involved in an immune response;
* Specialized tests, such as the collection, handling, and examination of bone marrow and cytology samples. The easy-to-follow format includes color plates and illustrations as well as tables of reference values to be used by veterinary technology students as guides for their own test results.
