This practical guide provides all the information necessary to understand the clotting mechanisms, as well as how to prevent, diagnose, and treat bleeding and clotting disorders. Practical Hemostasis and Thrombosis has been updated to reflect all the important advances made since the first edition. It includes an in-depth description of platelet abnormalities and disseminated intravascular coagulation, as well as covering the laboratory and molecular biological tests needed for the diagnosis of bleeding and clotting disorders.

Clinicians will find useful advice for everyday questions in each specialty area as the book describes hemorrhagic and thrombotic problems in cardiology, neurology, hepatology, nephrology, oncology, obstetrics, pediatrics, intensive care and transfusion medicine.

An invaluable resource for all hematologists, trainee hematologists preparing for examinations and clinicians this book should be kept close at hand for frequent consultation
