Coagulation testing is useful for assessing the ability to clot; for investigating the cause of a patient’s coagulopathy; and for therapeutic monitoring of certain anticoagulant medications. There has to be a logical systematic approach and discriminate use of laboratory investigations to reach the diagnosis and assess severity. Laboratory assessment of hemostasis presents many challenges for laboratories and the clinicians who interpret the results. This course aims to briefly explain the common tests used to assess hemostasis, as well as their clinical context and provides a guide to assess the cause of bleeding and clotting tendency.
