Covid-Coag Controversies

From the 2021 Joint Annual Meeting (recorded 6/28/2021)
Presented by George Fritsma, MS, MLS(ASCP)

A hemostasis abnormality unmistakably associates with COVID progression, but what is the abnormality? Platelet activation? Arterial thrombosis? Sepsis? Hypofibrinolysis? How do we measure? D-dimer? TEG? PLT count? VWF? ADAMTS13? We apply routine and specialized hemostasis laboratory assay results to establish a model and to support COVID management.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Propose the pathophysiology and comorbidities associated with COVID.
