Ok, got it
The acute cardiac care specialist frequently encounters bleeding complications as well as haemostasis disorders. This topic will provide an in-depth overview of bleeding in acute cardiology, including aetiology (haemostatic and non-haemostatic factors), predictors as well as actions to prevent and manage bleeding in the cardiac patient. The indications and correct usage of haemostatic drugs are discussed.
A low platelet count is one of the causes of bleeding; the main aetiologies are Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT), Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP) and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC): their diagnosis and management of these disorders are discussed in the second part of this online course.
