    Biography
      Wayne L. Chandler, MD is currently Division Chief for Laboratory Medicine, Department of Laboratories at Seattle Children's Hospital and Clinical Professor of Laboratory Medicine at the University of Washington. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, his medical degree from St. Louis University School of Medicine, and completed a residency in Clinical Pathology at the University of Washington. He worked in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at the University of Washington for 20 years and for 4 years in the Department of Pathology and Genomic Medicine at Houston Methodist Hospital. His clinical practice and research focuses on diagnostic testing for hemostatic and thrombotic disorders.

    Abstract

    This talk will cover different approaches to emergency hemostasis testing for patients that are actively bleeding due to trauma, surgery, obstetrical emergencies and other causes. The talk includes a discussion of rapid testing in the clinical laboratory, satellite laboratories and point of care testing using standard coagulation assays (prothrombin time, fibrinogen, platelet count and hematocrit) versus viscoelastic methodology. Critical aspects of emergency versus routine testing are reviewed and platelet function assays useful in rapid assessment of bleeding patients are discussed.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Describe the different types of coagulation assays used for emergency testing
    2. Understand critical differences between routine and emergency testing
    3. Understand role of platelet function testing
