An Algorithmic Approach to Hemostasis Testing is an up-to-date, well-illustrated reference text and practical guide for pathologists and laboratories engaged in hemostasis testing. It includes sections on hemostasis physiology, the basics of laboratory testing and interpretation, specimen collection and processing, patient history and diagnostic criteria, and anticoagulant drug monitoring.

The second edition contains new chapters on:

  • Quality in hemostasis laboratory testing
  • Emergency assessment of hemostasis in the bleeding patient
  • The value of consultation in hemostasis testing
  • Antifibrinolytic and thrombolytic agents

Case studies and detailed algorithms related to bleeding disorders and venous thrombophilic disorders are presented, including:

  • Elevated PT and/or aPTT
  • Bleeding with normal PT and aPTT
  • Abnormal thrombin time
  • Fibrinolytic and platelet disorders
  • Von Willebrand disease
