Brief Summary:
Coagulopathy is one of the most significant prognostic factors in patients with COVID-19 and is associated with increased mortality and admission to critical care. Most commonly observed coagulopathy in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 (COVID-19-associated coagulopathy) is characterized by increased D-dimer and fibrinogen levels. 71% of patients who did not survive hospitalization reported to have developed disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) compared to 0.6% of survivors.

Condition or disease

Detailed Description:
