What is the best haematology app?

Buku Haematology is a great clinical resource for primary care clinicians. Including how to manage complex results, condition workups and more.

Week two of my clinical practice is going to the end! Time flies! Now we are struggling in preparing the case study presentation slide. Although it's just a short case, therapists still expect us to explore more and get the history as deep as possible as a training in taking history and identify problems based on history and assessments!

Bleeding diathesis is unusual suspectibility to bleed due to hypocoagulation. It is caused by coagulopathy (defect in coagulation). The three main causes are acquired, autoimmune and genetic factors. Haemophilia is one of the bleeding diathesis which is the inability to control blood bleeding.
Be bear in mind that the bleeding will stand for a longer period of time, it's not bleeding faster! ⚠️
Haemophilia is divided into three types and haemophilia A is the most common which there is a clotting factor VII deficiency. The diagnosis are basically based on what is lack of in the blood.

Phew! I'm knackered after cramming all that info about anaemia into one tiny mind map 😂 haematology is such a big topic...I didn't even fit in any detailed info about sickle cell anaemia here!

Build your Support Network.
Good morning everyone, I just want to thank you all for taking the time to follow my journey thus far. I’ve been thinking over the last few months, where would I be without my NETWORK? I have an amazingly close knit family, helpful friends, people that I’ve worked with that have become incredible friends, my Bishop, my loving strong (always knows what to say) boyfriend, health care professionals and YOU GUYS! I’m so happy that I started this IG page 🥰 it’s helped me so much. Thoughts that I can’t say out loud, or say directly to people I can type and I feel so much better!!!

Heading into “work, work” today! Before D Day I worked in London two days a week, but since 29th October this is only the second time I’m making it into the office. I work from home 3 days so making that 5 isn’t a huge adjustment BUT now the 50 miles and 30mins train ride feels so far. I have the extra worry of being that bit further away if “something” goes wrong. I want to be excited to see my work colleagues and be “normal” but life isn’t normal anymore, I constantly have that extra layer of parent anxiety. Cancer changes EVERYTHING!! Despite all that I’m grateful that I’m able to make this journey today...Bilbo is in school, Rich is close by and my mum is on hand to pick him up from school. I’m lucky to have this support network! #workingmum #workingmumlife #godberstravel

I went on a tour of some NHS labs today and can I just sayyyy...the scientists working in those labs are soooo underappreciated and sooo underrated!!! You never hear of anyone singing the praises of the scientist who analysed the blood work, the scientist who analyses the cervical smears to check for abnormal cells and HPV, the scientists who embedded the tissue samples to then create tissue slices and see what’s going on. There’s soooo much that goes on behind the scenes at such great speeds and it’s all so hectic and crazy but no one seems to speak about it! It’s all the unglamorous jobs that these people do that AREN’T made into the medical dramas and tv shows that are really the backbone of everything that goes on and that are so essential! It honestly opened my eyes to the fact that there’s a whole network of people, a whole conveyer belt that’s involved in making things happen. When people say they’re going to the doctors or the hospital and they’re having “tests”...these are the people conducting those tests. The tests don’t happen by magic by little lab fairies. And it’s not easy stuff. It’s not simple. They don’t just add some things to a test tube and shake it around and get a result. What they do and the technology they use is really unbelievable. They’ll go from dissecting specimens to creating slides to staining and analysing to identify abnormal cells and disease to using a whole host of machinery to replicate DNA and work out blood compositions. We had a whistlestop tour of haematology, clinical chemistry, the blood banks, histopathology and cytopathology and every department was as important as the other. I went from seeing a hugeeeeee kidney with an enormous tumour in one room to seeing the remnants of a farmers completely shredded hand to then seeing rows upon rows of cervical smear samples awaiting analysis! The main thing I took away from it was that I really appreciate every person working in those departments whose name will never be known by the thousand of patients who they’re helping but who still go to work everyday because they want to improve people’s lives. The unsung heroes of the NHS.

So yesterday I went to see my haematology consultant to assess my progress and discuss my next stage! He was very pleased to see that I was walking much stronger and appeared brighter as the PN (peripheral neuropathy) has become less fiery in the last month. We sat and discussed my blood works, which he was very pleased with. He told me that in December my paraproteins were 6.6 and to his astonishment had dropped back down to 4, WITHOUT any treatment. This HAS to be the work of God in my life because how else can this be explained?
_____________________.
So after a long discussion it was agreed that I am now READY for STEM CELL TRANSPLANT and a large dose of MELPHALAN. I’ve been placed on the waiting list, which is currently only a three week wait! 🙌🏾 ________________
So it looks like #MissionRemission is on the horizon. I genuinely don’t know how to feel! When I left my appointment, I sat silently in the back of the car with mom and dad in the front talking, but I couldn’t hear them. I just saw the lights of cars whizzing past as I tried to process my thoughts. I felt happy, sick, scared and (for the first time) angry, all at the same time! I’ve been waiting for this day but yet I didn’t want it to come. I’m grateful that I live so close to a specialist hospital. Keep me in your prayers I need these emotions of my to settle down.

I've been wanting to write something for a while now about my other son. The one who doesn't have Leukaemia. His name is Harrison and he's 2 and a half years old. As the brother of a child with cancer, he is suffering too.

The weekend ended so fast and it comes to the week 2 of my clinical practice! First week clinical experience is better than what I expected lol 😂😂😂
And I will keep update everyday about my clinical on my insta story! (for sure will conclude it in few posts too! ) .

Haematology is the second topic I learnt in general medicine. There are two main subtopics which are anaemia and bleeding diathesis. Anaemia is a condition where the number of red blood cells or haemoglobin decreases below normal range or the lowered ability of red blood cells to carry oxygen. Anaemia are mainly divided into two types : iron deficiency and megaloblastic anaemia (caused by vitamin B12 or foliate deficiency or both). To make it clearer, compare them with the causes and some typical signs and symptoms as well as the diagnosis!

This weekend has been extremely heart warming. All my friends came together to raise money for my London marathon leukaemia care fund. Watching everyone push to the limits was amazing and seeing the smiles, laughter and hugs of support reminded me why I travel so far to be at this gym. We raised £419.06p! Could not be more proud of this team!

Variantlymfocyter (lymfatiska reaktionsformer) kan ha olika utseende men är nästan alltid större än andra lymfocyter. De förekommer framförallt vid virusinfektioner exempelvis mononukleos. Ibland har lymfocytkärnan nukleoler och då kan de vara svåra att skilja från blaster speciellt om blodet är från ett EDTA- rör Reactive lymphocytes may have different appearance but are almost always greater than other lymphocytes. They occur primarily in virus infections, such as mononucleosis. Sometimes the lymphocyte core has nucleolus and then they can be difficult to separate from blasts, especially if the blood is from an EDTA tube.  #plasmacells #plasmacell #erythrocytes

Forward and reverse grouping
.
What about ABO testing?
.
We can test using the patient’s red cells or plasma and react this to reagent red cells or plasma .
🔴 Forward testing – for red cell grouping. 
Patient red cells agglutinated by anti-A, anti-B. .
🔵 Reverse testing – for serum grouping. Patient serum against A1 and B red cells.
. 🔸The forward and reverse reactions should match e.g. group O blood no reaction in the forward group but reaction in the reverse group .
What scenarios can give discrepant results? .
I hope you have enjoyed this series, let us know what you would like to see next!

LONG POST... read at your own peril. 
When I started this page it was to give simple evidence based medical advice to help physical and mental health🙂

By no means do I wish to come across aggressive, closed minded or offensive but it seems I upset a couple of people by what I said about celery juice. 
I’ll be honest, I get upset when I see products or ideas promoted to cure various diseases with essentially no scientific explanation, evidence or liability for potential harm. 
I have worked in oncology, haematology and palliative care. I have seen vulnerable patients with terminal illness and their families fall pray to ideas and products promising miracles. 
They inevitably don’t work... trust me if they did they would have been thoroughly researched by pharmaceutical companies and then turned into expensive drugs. But when they have no benefit people waste not only a lot of money, but what is worst is that they spend the last part of their life focused on outlandish treatments rather than spending quality time with their family... and what is the absolute most heart-breaking thing is when they feel they haven’t done enough to cure their cancer and have somehow let their themselves and their family down. 
The notion that if they’d done something simple like drink celery juice, infuse vitamin C, coffee enemas or meditate the disease away is upsetting and ridiculous. Different cancers and autoimmune conditions are actually many different types of diseases just with some similar characteristics... the idea that one type of treatment could cure them all is so totally ridiculous!

Methods in blood banking .
1️⃣Tube
Uses the indirect antiglobulin test. The first phase is the immediate spin – patient serum vs donor red cells. If they react here it’s usually an IgM and hence not significant. Then at 37oC, add a potentiator (e.g. LISS) followed by the IAT. A good positive test at any stage will result in agglutination.
.
2️⃣Gel/column
Microtubules are filled gel and anti-IgG. If they can’t pass through then agglutination has occurred (positive reaction). Negative agglutination shown by a button at the bottom of the microtube.
.
3️⃣Solid phase - red cell antigens bound to bottom of microwells. Positive if diffuse carpet, negative if 
red cells form a discrete button. .

More lab for you. •
 #bloodsmearslide •
Polychromasia. (Blue arrow). This is a sign of regeneration most likely due to anaemia. For more information on IMHA, see the previous slide. The term polychromasia can be broken down; poly meaning many and chrome meaning colour. •

This slide was under oil at 100x optical magnification. I place a coverslip over the slide and add a drop of oil on top to magnify the cells even more. Always make sure you wipe the oil off the lens afterwards otherwise it will make its way in to the lens and damage it • 
The red arrows are nice examples of platelets. •

The antiglobulin test AKA Coombs test
.
This helps establish if antibody is present on the red cell surface. The antiglobulin agent helps bridge the 
red cells together via any coated antibodies.
.
Can be either 🔴 direct where antiglobulin agent is added to washed red cells. This includes polyspecific and/or specific to IgG/C3d
.
🔴indirect using patient serum (where the antibody will be) and donor red cells with addition of antiglobulin agent. If they react – agglutination will be seen.
.
⭐️REMEMBER there are different shades of positive and not all positive tests may be significant ⭐️ .

It's time for the red blood cells to shine! 💕

In our previous posts on blood cells we have talked about T cells and B cells which are both really important for the immune response.

Now, lets talk about the cheeky little guys who give the blood its colour! Despite their name, the red blood cells are not technically cells anymore. They develop as cells in the bone marrow, but once they have matured into adult cells, they shed their nucleus and organelles which are normally defining characteristics of mammalian cells.

Nonetheless, the red blood cells have many important functions in the body. One of their main tasks is to carry oxygen from your lungs to your tissues. Once fresh oxygen has been delivered, they bring carbon dioxide back to your lungs.

Your blood looks red because it contains about 44% red blood cells. Their red colour comes from iron which is an important part of the haemoglobin molecule. Haemoglobin binds the oxygen and carbon dioxide which is transported by the cells. With the help of haemoglobin, the amount of oxygen that can be transported in a litre of blood is increased up to 70 times compared to dissolving oxygen directly in the fluid components of the blood.

Another cheeky feature is that the red blood cells are shaped like donuts (biconcave discs). This shape helps them squeeze through the very narrow capillaries in the tissues as the blood is circulating around the body. ---
Curious about why we actually breathe oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide? Keep an eye out for our post on cellular respiration!

This can be done by adding these potentiating agents:
.
1️⃣ Low Ionic Strength Saline (LISS)
2️⃣ Albumin solution 
3️⃣ Polyethylene glycol (PEG) – removes H20 and allows RBCs to get closer

Sicklecellanemi är en genetisk sjukdom där de röda blodkropparna (erytrocyterna) ser ut som skäror (eng. sickle) istället för att ha normal rund form. Sjukdomen beror på en mutation och drabbar oftast afrikaner, och (om än sällsynt) befolkning vid medelhavet. Den heterozygota formen ger en viss motståndskraft mot malaria, och därför har den muterade genen levt kvar bland befolkningen.
Sjukdomen är recessiv, det vill säga anlagen måste nedärvas från båda föräldrarna för att sjukdomen skall bryta ut. Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease in which the red blood cells (erythrocytes) look like sickle instead of having normal circular shape. The disease is caused by a mutation and usually affects Africans, and (albeit rare) populations at the Mediterranean Sea. The heterozygous form provides a certain resistance to malaria, and therefore the mutated gene has survived among the population.

Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease in which the red blood cells (erythrocytes) look like sickle instead of having normal circular shape. The disease is caused by a mutation and usually affects Africans, and (albeit rare) populations at the Mediterranean Sea. The heterozygous form provides a certain resistance to malaria, and therefore the mutated gene has survived among the population. #metamyelocytes #metamyelocyter #juvenil #omogen #granulocytes #granulocyter #myelopoiesis #myelopoes #erythropoiesis #erytropoes #smears #blodutstryk #monocyte #monocyt #plasmacells #plasmacell #erythrocytes #lymphocytes #monocytes #haematology #leukocytes #erytrocyter #lymfocyter #myelocyter #monocyter #hematologi #leukocyter #blast #blood #lymfocyt

Blood bank basics
. ⭐️Zeta potential⭐️
. 🌡This stops red cells from getting too friendly with each other and causing problems, namely agglutination
. 🌡 Red cells have a negative ➖ charge (due to sialic acids) and to neutralise this, positive ➕charges surround this layer becoming weaker further away from the RBC membrane.
.
How can we artificially make the red cells closer together?
