Use of ROTEM for Multi-level Spine Surgery
The purpose of this study is to obtain coagulation profiles of patients undergoing multi-level spine surgeries with ROTEM® and routine coagulation tests. The investigators will compare the data from ROTEM® and routine coagulation tests with each other and with blood loss and transfusion therapies used.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||A Prospective Observational Study to Evaluate Perioperative Coagulation Profiles Using Rotational Thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) in Patients Undergoing Multi-level Spine Surgery|
- Coagulation profiles. [ Time Frame: One measurement before surgery, one after surgery is completed, and one measurement at each i-stat or 10% total blood volume loss. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
a small sample of blood will be obtained from a pre-existing arterial line.
