Mild and moderate hypothermia increases platelet aggregation induced by various agonists: a whole blood in vitro study.

Abstract

The mechanisms causing temperature-dependent bleeding, especially in hypothermic patients, warrant clarification. Therefore the aim of this study was to investigate platelet aggregation at the clinically important temperature range of 30-34 degrees C. After obtaining informed consent citrated whole blood was drawn from 12 healthy adult male volunteers, who… (More)
