Special investigations reveal incoagulable blood, defibrination
, elevated fibrinogen degradation products, thrombocytopenia and anaemia.
other snakes in Western Australia, such as Death Adders and Black snakes, may cause paralysis and/or rhabdomyolysis, the other features of Tiger snake envenoming, but without defibrination
Cardiac compressions, defibrination

More recently, the chromogenic substrate was replaced by a fluorogenic one (6), thus allowing the TGT to be run without defibrination
in not only platelet-free but also platelet-rich plasma, a possibility that had not been feasible until then because of the turbidity of the testing mixture.
The important exception follows bites by the boomslang, a slender, often arboreal, snake that causes significant coagulopathy, including internal and external haemorrhage, defibrination
, thrombocytopenia, and wide-spread ecchymoses over a period of days (rather than hours).
Complexing of tissue plasminogen activator with PAI-1, a2-macroglobulin, and C1-inhibitor: studies in patients with defibrination
and a fibrinolytic state after electroshock or complicated labor.
