Coagulation: An Overview

Course #5809 8:30am-12:00pm 3.5 CMLE Credits

Kathleen Finnegan, MS, MT(ASCP)SH Clinical Assistant Professor, Stony Brook University

If you need a review of the basic concepts of coagulation, this workshop is for you! Primary and secondary hemostasis and the thrombosis mechanism will be discussed. The intrinsic and the extrinsic pathway, Protein C, Protein S, inhibitors, routine coagulation testing and anticoagulant therapy will be reviewed. Other topics will include the importance of pre-analytical variables in coagulation and the sequence of events involved in hemostasis and thrombosis.

Following this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Describe the coagulation and thrombosis mechanism.

  • Explain the principles of primary and secondary hemostasis and the laboratory testing for each.

  • Discuss hypercoagulation and the disorders of coagulation and thrombosis.
