Triage

Triage

  1. Individuals with bleeding disorders should be triaged urgently since delays in administering appropriate therapy, such as infusion of factor concentrate, can significantly affect morbidity and mortality.
  2. Consultation with the patient’s primary provider of bleeding disorder care, in most cases a hematologist, is strongly advised. If this provider is unavailable, consultation with a bleeding disorders provider from the closest hemophilia treatment center is recommended. Administration of clotting factor replacement to the patient should not be delayed waiting for a consultation.
