The scope of this multi-authored book is broader than its title suggests. It deals with a large area of information important to both hematologists and cardiologists. Thus, it is as much concerned with the effects of blood disorders (such as anemia and polycythemia) on cardiovascular function as with the hematologic manifestations of cardiac disorders (such as endocarditis and prosthetic heart valves). In addition, there are chapters on the hemoglobinopathies, the role of 2,3-DPG in oxygen delivery, thrombosis, "coagulolysis," anticoagulant therapy, blood banking, and the special features of circulatory function in pregnancy and in the fetus.
