Take Evaluation ViewAbstracts

Bleeding symptoms such as bruising, epistaxis, and menorrhagia are common in the pediatrician’s office. Some, but not all, require hemostatic testing. Additionally, many surgeons continue to do screening coagulation studies prior to surgical procedures, and patients with abnormal results are referred back to the pediatrician for evaluation. This session will focus on which patients with bleeding symptoms merit testing, what are the best initial and follow-up tests to use, how to interpret the results of such testing, and how to manage bleeding symptoms in children with bleeding disorders. Additionally, how to manage abnormal screening studies obtained in asymptomatic surgical candidates will be discussed.
