    Here's this week's sample CME board review question on Disorders of Hemostasis:

    Coagulopathies can be categorized as those that are primarily due to a platelet problem, a fibrin problem, or a mixed platelet/fibrin problem.

    Memorizing which end product (platelets, fibrin, or both) is likely to be compromised can simplify the memorization of coagulation problems and focus/expedite the management of a bleeding patient with coagulopathy.


    Which of the following lists of pathologies is correctly linked to its corresponding clotting problem(s)?

    Answer Options:

    Mostly a coagulation problem: the hemophilias, hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) over-anticoagulation with anticoagulants (e.g. the new oral anticoagulants).

    A combination platelet/coagulation problem: disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC), hemophilias, hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS), early liver disease.

    A combination platelet/coagulation problem: heparin overdose.

    Mostly a platelet problem: immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS), von Willebrand disease, anti-thrombotic medications (e.g. aspirin, clopidogrel, prasugrel, ticagrelor).
