ROTEM® provides rapid and complete haemostasis information to help manage the bleeding patient and is the ideal support for your blood management program
Fast and effective bleeding management is one of the most vital challenges for the clinician in critical care medicine. Balancing transfusion risks, blood conservation and cost saving, also forms an important part of effective bleeding management.
Modern clinical management generally recognizes that whilst blood and blood products are potentially beneficial for patient care, they also pose substantial potential risks.
Proven ROTEM viscoelastic technology delivers a coagulation status overview of whole blood samples, in 10 minutes. Through measurement of kinetic changes in clot elasticity, both quantitative and qualitative assessments are provided.
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.
The introduction of ROTEM has been very successful here in Australia as part of a multimodal, multidisciplinary approach to bleeding management.
