A Practical Guide to Laboratory Haemostasis



Welcome to This site is designed to teach practical laboratory haemostasis and was written for laboratory staff, doctors in training and anyone who has an interest in haemostasis. It stems from a series of seminars that have run in Cambridge for some years and from numerous requests for practical data interpretation exercises in haemostasis. The site will allow you work through various tests and to undertake a number of data-interpretation questions with the answers provided and an explanation as to how these answers were derived. We have included comprehensive data on the interpretation of the various tests and we hope, useful comments. The site is not designed to discuss the management of clinical problems.

The site is free to use but if you would to contact us or if you find a problem/error - then please feel free to contact us [see the link on the right].
