The discussion will cover several key points around implementation and inclusion of these parameters in clinical practice, order sets, and clinical protocols. A few case studies will be reviewed and the role of the advanced parameters in the current and future environment will be discussed.


  • Describe the importance of accurate and timely reporting of the hematologic parameters in effective patient blood management
