Impaired fibrinolysis may contribute to development of adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Pathologic increases in endogenous plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) may blunt normal fibrinolysis and unmask alternate fibrinolytic mechanisms, such as elastase-induced fibrin degradation. We measured PAI-1 and elastase-induced fibrin(ogen) degradation(More)

A current focus of transfusion medicine is a judicious strategy in transfusion of blood products. Unfortunately, our ability to predict hemoglobin (Hgb) response to transfusion has been limited. The objective of this study was to determine variability of response to red blood cell transfusion and to predict which patients will have an Hgb rise higher or(More)
