CLT 201 W - Hematology and Coagulation
A comprehensive study of the hematopoietic and coagulation systems, including the normal physiology and classic pathology of both systems. Emphasis is on the theory, performance, interpretation and clinical significance of routine and special test procedures.
Prerequisite: BIO 131 Human Biology I and approval of the CLT advisor
3 Class Hours, 4 Laboratory Hours
This course is designated as a writing emphasis course.
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the general principles and techniques of basic manual hematology procedures.
2. Perform a CBC on an instrument and review and interpret data from the instrument.
3. Perform peripheral blood smear differentials.
4. Describe and recognize cellular morphology changes associated with various disease states.
5. Integrate hematology panel results with other patient data through the interpretation of case studies.
6. Define the process of hemostasis, explain how the coagulation laboratory accesses it, and be able to interpret the laboratory tests used in that assessment.
