From: Goal-directed coagulation management of major trauma patients using thromboelastometry (ROTEM®)-guided administration of fibrinogen concentrate and prothrombin complex concentrate

  Admission at ER Admission at ICU
EXTEM   
   A10 (normal range 43 to 65 mm) 40 ± 10 35 ± 9
   MCF (normal range 53 to 72 mm) 50 ± 8 46 ± 8
   CT (normal range 35 to 80 seconds) 78 (63, 113) 71 (54, 105)
FibTEM   
   A10 (normal range 7 to 23 mm) 5 (4, 7) 7 (5, 10)
   MCF (normal range 9 to 25 mm) 6 (4, 8) 9 (6, 11)
  1. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation or as median (25th percentile, 75th percentile). A10, clot amplitude at 10 minutes after the beginning of clot formation; CT, clotting time; ER, emergency room; EXTEM, extrinsically activated thromboelastography test; FibTEM, fibrin-based thromboelastometric test; MCF, maximum clot firmness.
