- Morbidity [ Time Frame: 28 days ]Morbidity will be assessed at 28 days as measured by the validated Self-Administered Quality of Well-being Scale (QWB-SA) and 5-Point modified Oxford Handicap Scale [secondary scale]
- morbidity [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Morbidity will be assessed at 28 days as measured by the validated Self-Administered Quality of Well-being Scale (QWB-SA) and 5-Point modified Oxford Handicap Scale [secondary scale]
- mortality [ Time Frame: 28 days ]All-cause death will be measured at 28 days
- mortality [ Time Frame: 6 months ]All cause mortality will be measured at 6 months
- ICU length of stay [ Time Frame: up to 6 months ]Time spent as a patient in the ICU will be measured
- Hospital length of stay [ Time Frame: up to 6 months ]Time spent in the hospital as a patient will be measured

The primary objective of this study is to provide preliminary efficacy and safety data on the enteral administration of a one-time dose of tranexamic acid to critically ill patients for the reduction of morbidity at 28 days after enrollment in the study.
Secondary objectives of this study are to determine the efficacy of administration of enteral tranexamic acid in reducing intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital length-of-stay, as well and mortality and morbidity at 6 months.
