Variant Haemoglobins – A Guide to Identification is based on the premise that any single diagnostic technique offers only a very provisional identification of a variant haemoglobin. In routine diagnostic practice two techniques are needed as a minimum, with the results being interpreted in the light of the clinical details, blood count, blood film and ethnic origin. This book covers 150 normal and variant haemoglobins that have been studied and carefully documented. Variant Haemoglobins has four introductory chapters followed by an invaluable atlas. The introductory chapters cover the genetics of haemoglobin synthesis the principles of tests employed for identification common haemoglobins of major clinical or diagnostic importance thalassaemias and related conditions The atlas section comprises 170 full colour pages in which each variant haemoglobin or combination of haemoglobins is illustrated by cellulose acetate electrophoresis at alkaline pH, agarose gel electrophoresis at acid pH, isoelectric focusing and one or more HPLC traces. For ease of reference, the atlas pages are arranged according to the retention time of each haemoglobin on HPLC, this becoming increasingly the primary technique employed in haemoglobin identification. Bringing a mix of necessary scientific expertise and clinical knowledge, each author has more than 30 years experience in the diagnosis of variant haemoglobins. Providing otherwise unavailable information, this unique and practical guide is illustrated with over 700 high quality colour digital images plus flow charts and line diagrams covers common and important haemoglobin variants, in addition to many rarer ones is an essential reference source for diagnosis in the haematology laboratory A remarkably useful book, Variant Haemoglobins will be valuable for haematopathologists, clinical and laboratory haematologists in practice and in training and all laboratory staff involved in haemoglobinopathy diagnosis.

This practical, easy-to-use guide, named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, addresses interference issues in all laboratory tests, including patient epigenetics, process of specimen collection, enzymes, biomarkers. Clinicians and laboratory scientists can therefore rely on one reference which speaks to both their needs of accurate specimen analysis and optimal patient care. Erroneous hospital and pathology laboratory results can be confusing and problematic, especially in acute care situations. While some factors creating interference, can be identified in the laboratory, detecting many others is often dependent on clinical details unavailable to the laboratory scientists or pathologists. Therefore, clinicians must become proficient in identifying such erroneous reports, and working with pathologists and laboratory scientists so that they can understand the source of such interferences, correct the results, and then decide what course of action must be followed for proper patient management. Named to Doody’s Core Titles 2013, a collection development tool for health sciences libraries of all sizes, by Doody Enterprises Practical information for both clinicians and laboratory scientists, presented in the form of tables and charts for easy reference Focus on range and sources of interferences rather than details of toxicologic mechanisms which are well covered in toxicology textbooks Covers interferences across endocrine, oncology, hematology, immunohistochemistry, immunology, serology, microbiology, and molecular testing

Managen beleuchtet den vielleicht wichtigsten Job, den es gibt. Seine Dynamik, seine Vielfalt, seine Rätsel und wie Manager ihn effektiv und gut beherrschen. Managen ist eine dynamische Tätigkeit, kein statische Wissenschaft. Mintzberg zeigt, dass Manager vielfach als überlegte und systematische Planer idealisiert werden und diesem Anspruch gar nicht gerecht werden können. Er skizziert Management als dynamischen Prozess. Mintzberg gilt als Enfant terrible unter den Managementvordenkern. Eine seiner Thesen: Management und Leadership sind Bestandteile des gleichen Jobs. Manager, die keine Leader sind, sind langweilig. Und Leader, die nicht managen, wissen nichts vom Geschäft. Die Trennung von Management und Leadership ist Unsinn. Mintzberg fordert auf zu einer längst überfälligen Diskussion über modernes Management: Wie kann man managen, wenn verlässliche Daten fehlen. Wie kann man eine Balance herstellen zwischen notwendiger Veränderung und Kontinuität? Wie kann man Dinge durchdenken, wenn die Zeit dazu fehlt? Effektive Manager sind nicht frei von Fehler, aber sie treffen die in der jeweiligen Situation bestmöglichen Entscheidungen.
