Conventional Versus Point-of-care Based Coagulation Management

2014-08-27 03:18:34 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the study is to determine the efficacy of two different algorithms for coagulation management in patients undergoing cardiac surgery suffering from increased bleeding tendency. Algorithm 1 is based on conventional coagulation analyses (INR, aPTT, platelet count, fibrinogen concentration,...) and Algorithm 2 is based on thrombelastometry using the ROTEM-device and impedance aggregometry using the Multiplate device.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The period of care beginning when the patient is removed from surgery and aimed at meeting the patient's psychological and physical needs directly after surgery. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)

Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)

A broad approach to appropriate coordination of the entire disease treatment process that often involves shifting away from more expensive inpatient and acute care to areas such as preventive medicine, patient counseling and education, and outpatient care. This concept includes implications of appropriate versus inappropriate therapy on the overall cost and clinical outcome of a particular disease. (From Hosp Pharm 1995 Jul;30(7):596)

Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)

A light microscopic technique in which only a small spot is illuminated and observed at a time. An image is constructed through point-by-point scanning of the field in this manner. Light sources may be conventional or laser, and fluorescence or transmitted observations are possible.
