Critical Decisions in Thrombosis and Hemostasis
Critical Decisions in Thrombosis and Hemostasis. The authors use algorithms, or decision trees, to guide clinicians through diagnosis of thrombosis (blood clotting and arterial blockage) and hemostasis (excessive bleeding or failure of blood to clot.) These two problems are often life threatening and must be dealt with swiftly and effectively. Following a step-by-step decision tree is a proven method of conveying information quickly. There are three major sections to this book--Venous Thrombosis, Arterial Thrombosis, and Hemostasis. Each section includes clinical assessment, diagnosis and therapy, including the latest drug therapies.
