Although drug-induced hematologic disorders are less common than other types of adverse reactions, they are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Some agents, such as hemolytics, cause predictable hematologic disease, but others induce idiosyncratic reactions not directly related to the drug’s pharmacology. The most important part of managing hematologic disorders is the prompt recognition that a problem exists. The main mechanisms to manage hematologic disorders include vigilance to observe signs and symptoms indicating a blood disorder and patient education of the warning symptoms to alert them of the need to report a condition to their primary care provider or an emergency health team. Part 2 of this course deals with Diagnosis, Treatment And Prevention.
