Table 1 Comparison of time to results.

From: Coagulation support algorithm with rapid TEG and functional fibrinogen TEG in critical bleeding: more results and less time

Test k-TEG r-TEG r-TEG + ff-TEF SCT
r (minutes) 13.8 ± 7.1 2.6 ± 2 -  
ACT (seconds)   265.7 ± 171.9 - 105.2 ± 46.3
TMA (minutes) 42.6 ± 12.4 25.4 ± 14.1 -  
CSAT (minutes)    21 ± 7.4  
  1. Data presented as mean ± SD. ACT, activated clotting time; CSAT, Coagulation Support Algorithm total time; SCT, standard coagulation tests; TMA, time to maximum amplitude. r: r-TEG versus k-TEG, P = 0.0000003; r-TEG versus SCT, P = 0.000000001; k-TEG versus SCT, P = 0.000000009; TMA: r-TEG versus k-TEG, P = 0.0001; r-TEG versus SCT, P = 0.00000004; k-TEG versus SCT, P = 0.000002; ACT versus r of k-TEG (seconds), P = 0.000004; CSAT versus k-TMA, P = 0.00000005.
