The Use of Haemostatic Drugs in Post-Operative Bleeding

Catharina Hartman, Nigel Webster

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

When a post-operative patient bleeds, the first consideration is whether further surgical or trans-vascular intervention is required. Hypothermia, acidosis and hypocalcaemia must be corrected. The cause of a systemic coagulopathy is best identified through thromboelastography and addressed as indicated by either platelet or fresh frozen plasma (FFP) transfusion. Hyperfibrinolysis is treated with an antifibrinolytic and fibrinogen. Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) should not be used until these measures have been taken.
