Why you need to attend:

Hemostasis and coagulation are relevant to the present day practice of medicine. The concept of coagulation is complex and is not confined to the well-known “cascade”. A logical understanding of hemostasis helps one to relate the physiology to patients with abnormal bleeding. A knowledge of the sensitive techniques required to identify bleeding disorders is also the need of the hour.

This workshop aims to give a bird’s-eye view on the basics in hemostasis with an understanding of basic coagulation techniques and its interpretation in bleeding disorders.


Areas that will be covered as lectures, demonstrations and hands on training

  • Normal hemostasis with recent concepts
  • Pathophysiology of bleeding and disorders of bleeding
  • Techniques/lab testing for bleeding disorders
  • Case discussions on interpretation of lab results
  • Hands on training on basic coagulation techniques
  • Demonstration of specialized tests of coagulation including laboratory visit
