Simple Tests of Haemostatic Function
Both the anaesthetist and surgeon should be familiar with the common tests of haemostatic function. The tests discussed in this chapter are those which are available in most modern hospitals. While these tests do not detect every haemostatic disorder, they do permit the detection and diagnosis of most problems. A haematologist should be consulted if a patient has manifestations of abnormal haemostasis despite these tests yielding normal results.
