Even considering these shortfalls, there is a growing body of evidence indicating that in order to improve survival in the seriously injured we need to address the possibility of a coagulation disturbance much earlier than was previously thought.
Metabolic acidosis has been incriminated as one of the instigators of coagulation disturbances following injury.
[13,14] Given the incidence of hyperchloraemia in our patient population, which in addition to hypoperfusion may contribute to metabolic acidosis, acute kidney injury and coagulopathy, the BD may be a more useful predictor of the risk of coagulation disturbances and an indicator for the early use of plasma rather than clear fluids for resuscitation.
Tissue factor exposure has been incriminated as a major trigger mechanism, [2,15] and it may be assumed that a higher ISS would be associated with more severe tissue damage, an increase in coagulation disturbances and a higher mortality rate.
The BD can be obtained within minutes using a conventional blood gas analyser, which is available in most emergency departments, and has a significant association with acute coagulation disturbances. This finding could have far-reaching clinical applications.
Papers cover pathophysiology, natural history, methods of evaluation, new drugs and therapeutic strategies, clinical issues, and emerging topics such as the role of coagulation disturbances, portopulmonary hypertension and the hepatopulmonary syndrome, hepato-renal syndrome, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, and non-cirrhotic portal hypertension.
Although coagulation disturbances have been described as potential complications of prostatic cancer,(1-3) gingival bleeding is rarely the presenting Symptom.(2) In fact, bleeding gums in an otherwise healthy patient is frequently considered to be trivial.
