Management of coagulation disorders in school.

Children with coagulation disorders:

  • Show increased school absenteeism and lower
    academic performance (relative to potential)27
  • May initially show symptoms at certain times or in
    particular situations
    - When they start contact sports
    - After menarche
    - Following surgical procedures

Management

  • Care has moved from hospital wards to the home,
    school and community 26
  • Sporting activities can provide emotional and social benefits, in addition to improving physical health, and should therefore be encouraged with appropriate medical care 29
  • All vaccinations recommended by the country of
    residence should still be given at the
    recommended age 20
If you suspect a coagulation disorder, investigate the patient’s bleeding history.
