A principal focus of the work has been the identification of diagnostic errors and mechanisms to prevent them. I have been a fatty acid biochemist for 35 years. This led to the production of several books, including a major textbook entitled Laboratory Medicine: The Diagnosis of Disease in the Clinical Laboratory, published by McGraw-Hill in the prestigious Lange series of medical textbooks.

Each day pathologists are faced with ordering laboratory tests with which they are unfamiliar. An incorrectly ordered test or error in interpreting test results can lead to mistakes that compromise patient safety.

Coagulation Disorders is designed to show clinical pathologists, lab managers, medical technologists, and residents how to avoid common errors in test selection and result interpretation in diagnostic coagulation. Utilizing a case-based approach, each chapter features a concise overview of a major diagnosis, with multiple illustrative cases, and then a list of recommended standards of care pertinent to the problem.

Just as it is essential for the practitioner in the diagnosis of bleeding and thrombotic disorders to know the appropriate course of action to establish a diagnosis or to appropriately treat a patient, it is equally essential to also know what not to do. Avoiding the mistakes is a critical first step to optimizing patient outcome and maximizing patient safety.

Features of Coagulation Disorders include: An emphasis on identifying established, evidence-based standards in coagulation testing Actual case illustrations of commonly seen errors as well as the result of those errors on patient outcome and laboratory management Examples of errors which compromise patient safety across all major areas of laboratory medicine Pocket-sized for portability

About the Series

A key issue for every laboratory and individual laboratory practitioner is the assessment of risk and a current working knowledge of the standards of care established for diagnostic testing via guidelines, major studies and trials. The Diagnostic Standards of Care series presents common errors associated with diagnoses in clinical pathology, using case examples to illustrate effective analysis based on current evidence and standards. In addition to being practical diagnostic guides, each volume demonstrates the use of quality assurance and the role of the pathologist in ensuring quality and patient safety."

Comments to eBook Coagulation Disorders: Diagnostic Standards of Care
Truthcliff
This book is very thin and not worth the money. It is difficult to understand and poorly organized. It has cases and points, but is over simplified. I would not recommend it for anyone. It is not sufficient for pathologists, pathology residents, hematologists or heme/onc fellows. If I could, I would return it.

Concise and up to the point. Great to give a quick review on real-life coagulation problems that are being faced in the daily practice. Dr. Laposata is an expert in the field. Great book!
