Fast and effective bleeding management is one of the most vital challenges for the clinician in critical care medicine. Specific strategies may vary from cardiac and vascular surgery to tumor resection or transplantation, orthopaedic surgery, trauma care or obstetrics. However, balancing transfusion risks, blood conservation and cost saving, also forms an important part of effective bleeding management.
Nevertheless, modern clinical management generally recognizes that whilst blood and blood products are potentially beneficial for patient care, they also pose substantial potential risks.
Blood saving in surgical procedures should therefore be accompanied by optimized treatment and blood transfusion strategies. This helps to rapidly achieve balanced haemostasis post-operatively with a lower risk for thrombotic events.
ROTEM® based diagnostics and treatment control through individualized therapy and the incorporation of ROTEM specific treatment algorithms have been shown to reduce blood transfusion volumes and to offer cost savings. It is also an efficient tool for therapy monitoring and adjustment.
Massive transfusions for trauma patients can be predicted directly on admission and transfusion volumes can be reduced substantially.
ROTEM® provides rapid and complete haemostasis information to help manage the bleeding patient and is the ideal support for your blood management program
