Coagulation testing is the basis for the diagnosis of bleeding and thrombotic disorders, as well as the mainstay of anticoagulant monitoring and management. This handbook provides practical information and guidance on topics relevant to directing a coagulation laboratory, filling a void in the literature. Since the first edition, all chapters have been updated and an entirely new chapter is included on pharmacogenomics and pharmacogenetics. The book will aid pathologists, clinical laboratory scientists and other physicians serving as laboratory directors to understand and carry out their responsibilities. It will also assist residents and fellows in learning the basics of coagulation testing and serve as a useful day-to-day reference for coagulation laboratory supervisors, technologists, and technicians. Finally, clinicians may find aspects of the book helpful in understanding the role of the coagulation laboratory in patient evaluation and monitoring.

From the book reviews:
"The purpose is to provide a single reference with information and guidance related to directing a clinical coagulation laboratory. The book is intended for everyone involved in clinical coagulation testing -- residents and fellows, clinical laboratory scientists, pathologists, or doctoral level scientists involved in directing a clinical coagulation laboratory. It would also be of interest to ´users´ -- e.g., clinical hematology consultants. ... This is a must-have for any clinical coagulation laboratory director." (Valerie L. Ng, Doody´s Book Reviews, January, 2015)
