ASH has developed a series of brief, evidence-based pocket guides to help physicians provide quality care to patients. The guides cover such topics as thrombocytopenia in pregnancy, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, red blood cell transfusion, anticoagulant dosing and management, and von Willebrand disease.

The pocket guides are available as a mobile application for iOS and Android devices, as a mobile-friendly website, and as PDF downloads. Free printed copies are also available to order.
