Platelet Function in Critically Ill Adults Treated With Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

2017-12-05 07:45:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Our primary aim is to describe platelet function in adult patients treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). A clarification of the platelet function in these critically ill patients contributes to an understanding of the mechanisms underlying their coagulopathy.

The present study is a substudy to the study entitled; "Coagulopathy During Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation" (pending Clinical Trial ID number).

Description

The knowledge of platelet function during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) remains sparse. In the present study, we aim to investigate platelet function in adult patients treated with ECMO using flow cytometry. Our hypothesis is that platelet function increases from day 1 to day 3 in patients treated with ECMO. Our secondary aim is to investigate the association between platelet function and the incidence of bleeding episodes and thrombosis during ECMO treatment.

The present study is a substudy to the study entitled; "Coagulopathy During Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation" (pending Clinical Trial ID number).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.

Deficient oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD.

A single-chain polypeptide derived from bovine tissues consisting of 58 amino-acid residues. It is an inhibitor of proteolytic enzymes including CHYMOTRYPSIN; KALLIKREIN; PLASMIN; and TRYPSIN. It is used in the treatment of HEMORRHAGE associated with raised plasma concentrations of plasmin. It is also used to reduce blood loss and transfusion requirements in patients at high risk of major blood loss during and following open heart surgery with EXTRACORPOREAL CIRCULATION.

A member of the vesicle-associated membrane protein family involved in the MEMBRANE FUSION of TRANSPORT VESICLES to their target membrane.

The entering of cells by viruses following VIRUS ATTACHMENT. This is achieved by ENDOCYTOSIS, by direct MEMBRANE FUSION of the viral membrane with the CELL MEMBRANE, or by translocation of the whole virus across the cell membrane.
