Abstract : The objective of this report is to develop a practical synopsis of consumption coagulopathy. Current methodology to recognize and diagnose consumption coagulopathy is reviewed. A consumption coagulopathy panel is devised as a data source for improved methodology. A panel of very simple coagulation tests was devised which can be readily repeated, day or night, weekday or weekend, on demand. It is designated 'consumption coagulopathy panel' to serve as a source of data for diagnosis, surveillance, and therapeutic decisions con erning the case at hand. The report provides a table listing the parameters of the standard consumption coagulopathy panel and the qualitative changes which occur with each parameter for all three types. In addition, the recommended treatment is correlated with the type of consumption coagulopathy. (Author)
