Another Topic to Video: Thrombotic Microangiopathies

Aug 25 2014 Published by under Kidney Function

My conversion of resident lectures to self-study videos continues with Thrombotic Microangiopathies.

These disorders are characterized by consumption of platelets and red blood cells with resulting anemia and blood clotting problems. Other organs can be affected, particularly the kidneys (duh-why else am I talking about it?). These disorders include hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP).

I would enjoy hearing your comments about the video. Would an adapted version (with less attention on specific doctor-level stuff) be good for parents?

Let me know in comments below, please!
