Evaluation of hemostasis by the Clot Signature Analyzer: a potentially valuable device for the anesthesiologist.
Rapid detection of hemostatic defects presents a challenge for the anesthesiologist who must balance anesthetic and surgical considerations for maintaining adequate platelet and coagulant factors, while keeping allogenic blood exposure to a minimum. The Clot Signature Analyzer, a point-of-care device capable of rapid response and easy interpretation is described here. Its applicability in two obstetrical patients with platelet dysfunction is discussed.
