What is hematology?
Hematology lab tests are used for the treatment and study of blood. Our hematology shows circulating red blood cells that carry and deliver oxygen; platelets that help with clotting and injury repair; and white blood cells that fight infection. Almost everything in the body that travels from one point to another goes through the bloodstream.
When is hematology an emergency?
A meshwork of chemicals and cells work together to let out what’s supposed to leave and keep in what’s supposed to stay. Platelets are part of that system — tiny cell fragments that constantly chip off, move away, and clog leaky spots in the bloodstream where they’re needed. There are only a few actual hematologic emergencies, and this is one of them. For one thing, spontaneous and potentially catastrophic bleeding is a major risk, but you also have to figure out why it happened, and it can’t wait until morning.
