The treatment of blood disorders is complex in any circumstance, and when your patient is in a critical condition, making the right management decision is key. Supported by informative graphics and flowcharts, this engaging course will equip you with the necessary knowledge to manage hematologic complications in your patients. This session gives a detailed breakdown of the roles of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, then provides a detailed discussion of the complications that occur when any of these cell types are out of balance.

After completing this session, you will be able to do the following:

  • Identify the characteristics of a leukemoid reaction and discuss the basics of immunotherapy
  • Discuss complications from reduced production or increased destruction of red blood cells
  • Understand the role of platelets and navigate heparin-induced thrombocytopenia
  • Understand hemopoiesis, cytokines, and the innate immune system
