Hemostasis, the process by which the body stops bleeding from a vessel, is a complex interplay of multiple steps. The first of these steps is trauma to the blood vessel lining, and the culmination is the formation of a “plug” that closes up the damaged site, controlling the bleeding.

Understanding the principles of hemostasis is critical to both the inpatient and the outpatient physician, as well as both the surgical and the nonsurgical physician specialists. Disorders of bleeding are extremely common, and identifying the particular etiology of a patient’s bleeding disorder is paramount to its correction.

It is SO FUN to watch Dr Mitchell! The amount of knowledge delivered so perfectly for me to digest is amazing. He takes you to the deepest of details with ease and maintains the solidity of the bigger picture in your mind (well mine at least). I have never had so much fun learning about the Coagulation cascades and their intricacies. Simply amazing!
