Practical Hematology for BDS

Author: Marwaha Komal

Great emphasis has been laid on the applied aspects of hematology because our aim is not to train technicians; but its aim is to make would-be dentists to learn the principles of hematology and to use them in their future clinical practice. Though students should be concerned about acquiring the necessary skill, more so in recording the results and interpreting them. The workbook is divided into two sections: (i) Practical section, (ii) Demonstrations. The Practical section includes those practicals which are required to be included in the University practical examination. They are to be performed by the students during practical classes to acquire skills. Demonstrations are to be shown to the students during practical classes. However, these demonstrations are not required to be included in the University examinations but questions based on this would be given in the form of charts, graphs and calculations for interpretation by the students. All the practicals are covered under the following sections. A set of objectives has been given at the beginning of each practical. They are intended to inform the student what they must learn from a particular exercise. The student should go through them before starting the practical and should again look at them after completing the practical, to assess whether he has acquired the necessary skill and the knowledge. The objectives covered in this book are based on what a student must know but they do not limit what he may know. Medical field being so vast, there is no end to knowledge so teachers can add on these minimum objectives. Covers the basic knowledge of the topic on which the practical is based. Besides the technical details, a clear concept regarding the theoretical background of the experiment performed, its importance and uses, and clinical correlation is covered under discussion. Well-labeled diagrams and photographs of the apparatus are provided along with the text for proper understanding. To overcome the need of using additional practical file, work space has been provided at the end of each chapter where students will record observations, perform calculations and give the results. Important viva questions are also given to help students prepare for their examination.
