A one-day full immersion masterclass aimed to consolidate the basic knowledge on coagulation and haemostasis processes, in particular in cardiac surgery and surgery related procedures and to update on the latest discoveries in coagulation monitoring and bleeding management in cardiac surgery. At the end of the Course, the participants will acquire a solid knowledge of coagulation derangements occurring in cardiac surgery operations and differential diagnosis of postoperative bleeding complications through point-of-care monitoring devices and correction of eventual deficiencies of coagulation abnormalities by specific drugs.
