Markers: Diagnostic Utility in Hemostatic Disorders
We recognize that companies are cutting back on travel-related discretionary spending, so we are bringing our ISLH symposium to you! We now have the symposium available as a webinar to enable you to learn more about platelet morphology and coagulation markers when it’s convenient for you―24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
View our webinar and learn about the diagnostic utility of platelet morphology and coagulation activation markers.
Clinical and laboratory approach to disseminated intravascular coagulopathy in different clinical scenarios and the role of D-dimer
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a serious complication of many clinical scenarios including infection/sepsis, malignancy, and trauma or surgery. DIC remains a clinical diagnosis supported by laboratory data.
Platelet parameters and morphology investigation: where these can help in diagnosing platelet disorders
Inherited thrombocytopenias (IT) are heterogeneous disorders affecting platelet count and function. Distinguishing IT from immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a practical challenge, and
therefore, patients are at risk of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment such as administration of intravenous steroids, immunoglobulins and/or needless splenectomy. Diagnostic difficulties reported in literature will be illustrated by clinical cases from the speaker’s individual experience.
Attend the symposium and learn about:
The DIC scoring system introduced by the ISTH/SSC
D-dimer as the key marker for DIC diagnosis and prognosis
Platelet size and morphology analysis
MPV values—differences between hematology analyzers
