A simplified method for using the thrombotest has been described. This method consists of the use of a small portable instrument providing a constant temperature. Microquantities of whole blood are used, thus obviating the need for expensive and cumbersome equipment such as a centrifuge and water bath. The application of this method, which requires only a small and relatively inexpensive instrument, is discussed as well as the fact that physicians using anti-coagulant therapy can make such tests in the office or at the patient's bedside.
