A template for diagnosing the non-overt phase of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) has recently been proposed. However, validation of its performance and the proposal of a defining score are required. The aim was to assess feasibility of the non-overt DIC scoring template and its potential prognostic significance. Consecutive patients admitted to a university hospital intensive care unit were initially assessed over 2 months. Following this, a 12-month study examined the prognostic… CONTINUE READING
