This syllabus is for information purposes only, is subject to change and is only a guideline for the

course.
All changes will be provided to each student in writing and the student will be accountable for all written
changes.


Course Objectives
:

1. Cite the reference ranges for hematocrit in men, women, and newborn infants.

2. List four factors which aff
ect the erythrocyte sedimentation rate.

3. Cite what the erythrocyte sedimentation rate measures.

4. Cite the reference range for the Westergren erythrocyte sedimentation rate method for men,
women, and children.

5. Describe the major steps in the formatio
n of hemoglobin.

6. Cite the reference range for hemoglobin in men, women, and newborn infants.

7. Describe the use of standard curves for hemoglobin measurements using the cyanmethemoglobin
method for hematology analyzers.

8. Enumerate and calculate leuko
cyte relative values and absolute values.

9. Compare and contrast the main function of each of the normal white blood cells.

10. Define hematopoiesis

and identify sites of origin for cellular development in the embryo, fetus,
adult.


Textbook
:

Clinical Hem
atology and Fundamentals of Hemostasis, ed 4, FA Davis (Philadelphia), 2010.


Course Description
:

Fundamental theories of hematopoiesis, hemostasis, routine laboratory evaluation of blood
components using standard instrumentation and microscopic methods.

Anemias and leukemias will also
be discussed as well as quality control of hematology laboratory studies. Hemostasis laboratories will
focus on standard coagulation analyses and quality control evaluation.


Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Statement

Students with medical, psychological, learning or other disabilities desiring reasonable academic
adjustment, accom
m
odations, or auxiliary aids to be successful in this class will need to contact the
disability resource center (DRC) coordinator for eligibi
lity determination. Proper documentation of
impairment is required in order to receive services or accommodations. The DRC is located at the

Course Activities
:

Students will receive lectures on the topics listed above. In the laboratory section, students will perform
routine hematology tests and coagulation tests. They will also learn concepts of automation in the
hematology and coagulation laboratory. Students w
ill be tested on lecture material in a multiple choice
format; they will be tested on laboratory tests by laboratory practicals. They will also be required to
present a case in hematology or hemostasis, being graded on accuracy of medical terms, articulati
on,
and ability to answer questions.
