Impact of graded hypothermia on coagulation and fibrinolysis.


BACKGROUND Hypothermia has a detrimental effect on hemostatic mechanism. The purpose of this experimental study was to investigate the effect of graded hypothermia on markers of the anticoagulant system (antithrombin III and protein C) and fibrinolytic system (plasminogen, α(2)-antiplasmin), and on vascular wall and other tissue specimens.
