Clot or Bleed: A Painless Guide for People Who Hate Coag
By Kristine Krafts, M.D.,
Department of Pathology
University of Minnesota School of Medicine
Clot or Bleed (A Painless Guide for People Who Hate Coag) is written for students who have had a difficult time understanding coag. It explains how clots are formed and broken down, shows how to use laboratory tests in practice, and reviews bleeding and clotting disorders. It’s straightforward, easy to understand, and full of memorable mnemonics (you’ll never forget the extrinsic and intrinsic arms again).
