This course covers the fundamentals of hematology, including the recognition of commonly used anticoagulants in hematology tests. Participants will learn to understand CBC reports, identify critical values in CBC, and gain insights into the basics of hemostasis. The course also provides an approach to investigating patients with bleeding disorders and recognizing methodologies in the hemostasis lab.

Day-1

  • 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM: Hands-on activity: To Perform Complete Blood Count (CBC) using a hematology analyzer & understand its principle – Perform & Stain blood film – Perform Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR)

Day-2 

  • 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM: Introduction to define hemostasis – Discover the approach to investigate patients with bleeding disorders
  • 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM: Recognize methodologies in the hemostasis lab – Analyze the most important sources of pre-analytical variability in hemostasis testing
  • 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM: Break
