Table 3 Median (first to third quartile) FFP dose (ml/kg) administered for different pretransfusion INR valuesa

From: A national study of plasma use in critical care: clinical indications, dose and effect on prothrombin time

INR value preceding FFP treatment Median FFP dose per treatment, ml/kg (first to third quartile)
≤1.5 8.9 (5.8 to 13.9)
1.6 to 2.0 9.7 (6.7 to 15.3)
2.1 to 2.5 13.8 (8.6 to 18.7)
2.6 to 3.0 13.7 (7.8 to 24.2)
>3.0 15.7 (11.4 to 22.1)
  1. aFFP, fresh frozen plasma; INR, international normalised ratio. Results for FFP dose administered by level of pretransfusion INR are shown. P < 0.001 across the groups (Kruskal-Wallis test).
