If there is such a thing as a must-have resource, the Technical Manual would be it. In its 29 chapters and 100+ methods/appendices this book provides valuable content for newcomers as well as seasoned professionals alike. The full spectrum of blood collection and transfusion is detailed: quality and regulatory issues, donor eligibility, component preparation, blood groups, antigen/antibody testing, transfusion practice (including special situations and patients, and transfusion outcomes. Additionally, this edition captures the late-breaking changes in donor deferrals made by the FDA just weeks before the new edition was released. Other notable updates:

  • Apheresis content updated to 2023 ASFA indications.
  • Influence of COVID-19 included in discussions of disaster preparedness, blood shortages, convalescent plasma.
  • Expanded cell therapy content.
  • Changes in neonatal and pediatric transfuse practice.
  • Updates in molecular testing.

The methods and appendices are once again posted online at no extra cost. Purchasers of the print edition will find an access code to the online content in the book itself, and the digital edition includes methods/appendices as ancillary files to the chapters. Because the Technical Manual is such a good text for those just about to begin their careers, the AABB is happy to offer student pricing.
