VV Clinical: A practical guide to diagnosing coagulopathy, Part 1.

In our two part series on coagulation we talk to Prof. Bruce Parry, a former clinical pathologist from the University of Melbourne. In part 1 we cover primary coagulation. We talk everything platelets: how to accurately pick cases of thrombocytopaenia, pro-tips to make sure you get to the right answers, and common pitfalls. We also look at the buccal mucosal bleeding time test: how to do it, and what information it will provide. 

We’re also excited to introduce you to our first ever sponsor: our guest expert is brought to you by Heska, the most exciting new player in in-house diagnostics in Australia.  Heska aims to change the way you think about and run your in-house diagnostics to save you both time and money, while increasing your standards of care.
