This course will constitute an in depth study of the hemostatic mechanism. Current research and case studies on the roles of vessel endothelium, platelet function, clotting procoagulants and fibrinolysis will be presented. Students will diagnose pathologic hemostatic states, such as hemorrhage or thrombophilia, due to deficiencies and impairments of these roles, including the impact of natural and acquired anticoagulants/inhibitors and anticoagulant therapy.
