Chronology of Occult and Gross Coagulopathy in Burn Patients
Determining the Chronology of Occult and Gross Coagulopathy in Thermally Injured Patients: A Systems Biology Approach
The purpose of the study is to identify the inflammatory and coagulation pathways and mechanisms that are activated immediately following burn injury, and how they affect outcomes in terms of organ failure and death. This study also addresses the limitation of current tests (PT, PTT, and platelet counts) employed to identify coagulation disturbances in severely injured patients both in a comprehensive and rapid manner.
