    Abstract:

    Does one size really fit all?  Selection, performance and interpretation of laboratory tests for pediatric patients presents a significant daily challenge for clinicians, medical directors and laboratorians.  This presentation of particularly interesting cases by a laboratory supervisor at a children’s hospital will demonstrate clinical applications in which coagulation testing made a positive impact in diagnosis and management, and increased the incidence of favorable outcomes for young patients.
     

    • Review pediatric coagulation case studies including disease states.
    • Compare coagulation results before and after therapeutic treatment.
    • Identify unique challenges to coagulation testing in the pediatric setting.
