Hemostasis is the study of the components of the coagulation and fibrinolytic systems and related disorders. In lecture students will comprehensively study these systems and develop an understanding of mechanisms involved in their normal function as well as the clinical and diagnostic features of the disorders of each system. In the laboratory component students will learn the basis of the laboratory tests performed to assess the coagulation and fibrinolytic systems and become technically proficient in performing these tests. Case studies will also be used for the clinical application of the material. Registration in MT 431 is limited to accepted majors of MT only. Registration in MT 531 is available on a space available basis and with permission of instructor. Not open to non-majors of BCLS.
