Intraoperative Haemostatic Disorders
Occasionally a haemostatic disorder is detected intraoperatively. The disorder may be an existing unsuspected bleeding disorder, or it may have arisen intraoperatively. Regardless of the cause, diagnosis and therapy must be timely and efficient, and so the anaesthetist should be familiar with the basic diagnosis and therapy of haemorrhagic disorders occurring intraoperatively. Such knowledge is invaluable and saves time both in diagnosis and therapy. This is essential for the effective management of patients with severe life threatening intraoperative haemorrhage due to a haemostatic disorder.
