Abstract:
      This study aimed to investigate dynamic changes in thromboelastography (TEG) and evaluate its value for emergency trauma patients. TEG values (R, K, Angle, MA and CI) were detected l, 3, and 7 days post trauma. Followup prognosis data were recorded among all patients and correlations between TEG changes and prognosis were assessed. The results revealed that the K and R volumes of the poor prognosis group were obviously higher than those of the good prognosis group at each time point; while the Angle, MA, and CI volumes of the poor prognosis group were relatively lower than those of the good prognosis group, and showed a little rising tendency. This study suggests that variables measured by TEG were closely associated with prognosis evaluation, and highlighted the dangers of coagulation disorder at early stage. TEG is of benefit in evaluating the function of coagulation in clinical emergency trauma patients.
