Welcome to the Video Course on ‘Hematology-Oncology’.
Blood consists of four components – white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets and plasma – that help oxygenate our organs and tissues, act as a defense against infections and form clots to stop bleeding. But these components may also indicate the presence of abnormalities, which sometimes lead to blood cancers. It is here hematology-oncology comes into significance.
Hematology-oncology refers to the combined medical practice of hematology (the study of the blood’s physiology) and oncology (the study of cancer). This type of medicine diagnoses and treats cancerous blood disorders and cancers, and manages symptoms of these diseases and resultant tumors (if present).
The present video course, hence, been devised to discuss some of the common topics that are likely to be encountered by the medical graduate in their clinical practice and thus will help them understand the topics with more clarity. The course would also be useful for anyone interested in the field of Hematology and Oncology.
This video course aims to train medical students acquire deeper understanding of the following topics: Components of whole blood ,Blood products,ABO Blood Type,Rh Status,Transfusion reactions,Complete Blood Count with differential, Coagulation studies, Overview of Hematopoiesis, Erythropoiesis, and Thrombopoiesis
