About the book

Blood donation and transfusion have evolved significantly, particularly in the last few centuries. Unnecessary transfusion has an attendant risk of hemolytic transfusion reactions (HTR), hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN), and Transfusion Transmissible Infections (TTI’s). The need for clinically indicated use of blood cannot be overemphasized. This book provides readers with evidence-based best practices covering the entire blood transfusion process from blood donation to transfusion. It will include evidence-based best practice implementation in topics including donor recruitment and retention, testing of donors for TTI’s and clinically relevant red cell antigens, component production and therapy, apheresis, GLP, GMP, housekeeping, haemovigilance, traceability, cold chain management, quality management issues, compatibility, management of transfusion reactions, training and competency and provision of a safe, adequate and timely supply of blood.

This book will facilitate the delivery of an excellent blood transfusion service and will be a useful resource for biomedical scientists, clinicians, and students in the field of biomedical science and medicine.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ana Cink

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
