Repeated early hemofiltration filter clotting are real thrombotic events. Diagnosis of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) in this setting in ICU remains difficult. We describe two cases of repeated early hemofiltration filters clotting in ICU and to evaluate their impact on the probability test 4T’s score and diagnosis of HIT. Two patients undergoing at least three repeated early hemofiltration clotting filters in <6 h revealing HIT in ICU had a low probability score for HIT. Despite a 4T’s… CONTINUE READING
