This handbook is designed to be a resource for both the common and uncommon hemostatic problems that health care providers often face in clinical practice. Currently there is no practical up-to-date book to help the clinician with these patients. The handbook was written to offer a practical guide to recognizing, diagnosing, and managing theses patients. One of the most remarkable areas of medicine in the last ten to fifteen years is the revolution in thrombotic diseases. This includes the introduction of low molecular weight heparins, thrombolytic therapy, and the recognition of the hypercoagulable states. A large portion of this book is dedicated to the thrombotic disorders and their therapy.
