Hematology I & II and Medicine WetLab

December 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Hematology I & II and Medicine WetLab
Each attendee will receive four hours of CE credit.

We will begin with a basic overview to hematology including sample collection, slide preparation, staining techniques, systematic smear evaluation, and basic cell identification. WBC morphology will be discussed and platelet number estimation. The second part builds on the basic knowledge of the normal CBC reviewed in Hematology I. Anemia, regenerative and nonregenerative, will be discussed and RBC morphology detailed. Attendees will review CBC slides and corresponding case histories from 15 unique cases demonstrating principles discussed in lecture.

The goal of this WetLab is to familiarize attendees with RBC poikilocytosis including spherocytes, acanthocytes, schistocytes and eccentrocytes; neutrophil toxic change and bands, stimulated and atypical lymphocytes, eosinophilia and basophilia; platelet clumping and platelet number slide estimation. The technique of slide review will include scan of the feathered edge at 10x, 100 cell differential and assessment of RBC and WBC morphology in the monolayer area at 40x, and platelet count estimate at 100xoil. The emphasis is on canine and feline hematology although some information is provided on equine and bovine hematology.

CE classes fill-up quickly, therefore we encourage you to sign up early. To sign-up for a class, please contact the Marketing Department at 425-355-5252 or 800-347-0043, or e-mail at labnews@phoenixlab.com
