Faced with a bleeding patient, it may be difficult to determine whether blood loss is due to a local factor or an underlying hemostatic defect. There are a range of laboratory tests which can be performed to identify the cause of bleeding in a patient. This book highlights the tests that can be used in the laboratory to aid diagnosis.
