Differential Diagnosis

ROTEM® analysis is rapidly performed with whole blood. ROTEM® monitors the treatment success within minutes.

ROTEM® analysis is rapidly performed with whole blood and provides information on:

  • hyperfibrinolysis
  • requirement for factor, fibrinogen or platelet substitution
  • extent of dilutional coagulopathy
  • heparin and protamin dosage monitoring

ROTEM® monitors the treatment success within minutes and enables individualized and effective therapy.

Effective bleeding management

Fast and effective bleeding management is one of the most vital challenges for the anesthesiologist in intensive care medicine. Specific strategies may vary from cardiac and vascular surgery transplantation or trauma care. Nevertheless, modern trauma management generally recognizes that while blood and blood products are potentially beneficial for patient care, they also pose substantial potential risks.

Lower risk for thrombotic events

Blood saving in surgical procedures should therefore be accompanied by optimized treatment and blood transfusion strategies. This helps to rapidly achieve balanced hemostasis post-operatively with a lower risk for thrombotic events.

Reduced blood transfusion volumes

ROTEM® based diagnostics and treatment control through individualized therapy have been shown to reduce blood transfusion volumes and to offer cost savings. ROTEM® is an ideal tool to assess the efficiency of several coagulation factors, including fibrinogen and to guide the administration of corresponding factor concentrates. ROTEM® is the most comprehensive diagnostic system for coagulation management and for the reduction of bleeding risks.
