The Quick Guide to Coagulation Testing, Second Edition, is a quick-access, readily available pocket reference for health practitioners who order, collect, perform, or interpret hemostasis laboratory test results or administer hemostasis-related therapy.

The Guide outlines the most common hemorrhagic and thrombotic conditions together with their respective assays to emphasize correct laboratory evaluation. Treatment discussions include the prophylactic and therapeutic application of non-biological, synthetic, and human blood-derived components to control bleeding, and the use of antithrombotics designed to prevent or resolve arterial and venous occlusions. The emphasis is on proper dosing and valid laboratory monitoring of hemostatic therapy.

New to the second edition is a series of introductory-reference tables summarizing hemostasis assays for various conditions with their reference intervals, and when applicable, therapeutic ranges. The discussion of platelet and coagulation physiology is expanded, platelet function testing is detailed, and new antithrombotic therapies are described with therapeutic monitoring recommendations. All portions of the second edition have been enhanced to reflect current international practice standards.
