Hypocoagulability and impaired platelet function have been associated to a higher risk of death in sepsis. The aim of our cohort study was to determine whether sepsis-induced hypocoagulability (assessed by ROTEM®) and platelet dysfunction (assessed by MULTIPLATE®) were worse in septic patients who died within the first 28days compared with patients who died between days29-90.

Whole blood hypocoagulable profile correlates with the greater risk of death at 28 days in patients with severe sepsis

Abstract

Hypocoagulability and impaired platelet function have been associated to a higher risk of death in sepsis. The aim of our cohort study was to determine whether sepsis-induced hypocoagulability (assessed by ROTEM®) and platelet dysfunction (assessed by MULTIPLATE®) were worse in septic patients who died within the first 28days compared with patients who died between days29-90.
