4/3/2019
12:00 PM to 1:00PM (Americas) Central Time (US & Canada)

Kandace Gollomp, MD, Hematology/Oncology Attending, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, PA

This session will examine the incidence, clinical significance, and diagnostic evaluation of iron deficiency anemia and thrombocytopenia in pediatric patients. The use of expanded CBC parameters, reticulocyte hemoglobin (RET-He) and immature platelet fraction (IPF) will be discussed as additional tools to manage these challenging conditions. Case study examples will be reviewed to illustrate the clinical benefits of these parameters.

Objectives:

  • Recognize the use of expanded CBC parameters in patients with thrombocytopenia.
  • Summarize the role of expanded CBC parameters in the evaluation and management of anemia.
  • Identify the advantages of expanded CBC parameters through specific case study examples.

​This session provides 1 contact hour through P.A.C.E.® and the state of Florida.
