||This is an introductory course for Medical Laboratory Technician students covering the production, maturation, function and abnormalities of blood cells and coagulation (stoppage of bleeding) to maintain body homeostasis. The course covers routine hematology procedures to identify normal, abnormal and immature cells. The course also covers coagulation procedures to detect deficiencies and abnormal conditions of blood clotting.
- Explain the production, maturation sequence, destruction and function of erythrocytes.
- Correlate the production of abnormal erythrocytes to the pathological cause, hematologic abnormalities, signs and symptoms and treatment.
- Explain the production, maturation sequence and destruction of leukocytes.
- Compare the function of leukocytes in health and in disease.
- Correlate hematological abnormalities, signs/symptoms, and treatment for leukocyte disease/disorders.
- Explain the production, maturation sequence, destruction and function of thrombocytes.
- Describe the coagulation cascade.
- Perform routine hematological testing procedures.
- Interpret routine hematological testing procedures in health and disease.
- Perform routine coagulation testing procedures.
- Interpret routine coagulation testing procedures in health and disease.
