Haematology includes the diagnosis and management of blood and bone marrow disorders. Even though a haematologist spends a lot of time giving patients direct clinical care, diagnostic work in the lab is still a crucial part of his job.

Why is hematology important?

Haematology is the field that is responsible for diagnosing and treating a wide range of benign and malignant disorders, including red and white blood cell dysfunction, platelet and coagulation in adults and children.

Haematologists provide direct care for patient clinics and hospital units. Leukaemia, lymphoma, or myeloma are just a few of the life-threatening illnesses that can strike people and require chemotherapy. Additionally, it gives GPs guidance on how to care for patients at home.

For instance, anaemia, a condition brought on by a variety of factors, is the loss of red blood cells. When the bone marrow produces too many aberrant white blood cells to replace erythropoiesis and thrombopoiesis, severe symptoms result. An important acquired condition is the identification of an underlying ailment as a diagnosis or symptom.

Haematology can detect these imbalances. One of the most important laboratory tests that may be used to diagnose these disorders and enable the proper therapy is a full or complete blood count (CBC/FBC).
