This presentation will cover the importance of examining a blood film every time you perform haematology. We will cover a step-by-step approach to preparing, staining, and examining the slide under the microscope. You will learn how the examination of a blood film provides essential information that cannot be obtained from an automated analyser, helping you make informed clinical decisions. We will discuss key abnormalities in erythrocytes, leucocytes, and platelets, as well as other cell types and infectious agents.
- Understand the benefits of examining a blood film, including the ability to detect abnormalities that may not be identified through automated analysis.
