Thromboelastography to Assess Hemostatic Changes in Laboring Patients Undergoing Non-elective (Intrapartum) Cesarean Delivery
The purpose of the study is to assess the coagulation changes that occur in laboring patients undergoing non-elective (intrapartum)Cesarean delivery using thromboelastography (TEG). We will compare coagulation data to assess potential coagulation changes associated with hemoglobin changes before and after surgery, and related to estimated blood loss.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
Ages Eligible For Study:
- Obstetric in-patients - Laboring patients with Epidurals for Labor Analgesia going for non-elective Cesarean - Patients of all ethnic backgrounds will be included - Singleton pregnancy - ASA 1 or 2
