Discovery Radio – Episode #49 – Blood Research: Diagnosing HIT

A commonly prescribed blood thinner can cause a serious, even fatal condition known as HIT. On today’s show, we’ll hear from a local researcher who’s working diligently on new treatments and tools for diagnosing HIT. And later, we’ll hear about a new public awareness campaign that can make you a hero in an emergency situation.
