The Coagulation Consult covers major topics of interest to hematologists who are asked to consult on individuals with coagulation related diseases, and encompasses the field’s most recent developments. This “case-directed” book describes state-of-the-art approaches to patients with bleeding and clotting disorders, as well as laboratory tests for coagulation.
