Death by Clot: Hematology Assessment, Pathophysiology & Pharmacology

Hematologic disorders are a leading cause of admission, mortality and morbidity in the acute patient population. Most hospitalized patients are at risk for either bleeding or clotting.

This course will offer a comprehensive review of the physiology and assessment of the hematopoietic system. The function and pathologies related to red cells, white cells and platelets and clinical application of the interpretation of the complete blood count, and coagulation profiles will be outlined.

Specific disorders discussed include: disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), sickle cell disease, hemophilia, heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT ), idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (IT P), hemolysis elevated liver enzymes and low platelets (HELL P), and vonWillebrand’s disease.

Hypercoagulable states and clotting disorders such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT ), pulmonary embolism (PE), stroke and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) will be evaluated. Pathology, assessment, treatment options, clinical guidelines and evidence based practice will be discussed.
