On The Job
Dr. Meghan Harmon comes to BluePearl after three years as a clinical instructor at the University of Missouri veterinary college where she was awarded the Zoetis Distinguished Veterinary Teacher Award and selected by one of the graduating classes as the outstanding teacher of the year. Her particular clinical interests include coagulation disorders, immune-mediated blood disorders, sepsis and polytrauma cases. She also enjoys treating patients who require the use of a mechanical ventilator.
At the University of Missouri, Dr. Harmon was involved in the investigation of platelet dysfunction during controlled surgical trauma and the evaluation of platelet function using thromboelastography with platelet mapping. She is excited to be able to perform the procedure at our Seattle hospital to assist in detecting coagulation disturbances in patients suffering from uncontrolled hemorrhage and monitoring their anticoagulant and anti-platelet medical treatment.
