Comparing Point of Care Clotting Tests in the OR Versus Standard Laboratory Clotting Tests
The purpose of this study is determine the agreement of point of care (POC) clotting tests (INR and aPTT) by the POC device by Hemochron Jr versus standard laboratory clotting tests (INR and aPTT) in patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery.
