  • Coagulation Screening - Suspect DIC (PT, aPTT, INR, Fibrinogen, D-Dimer, FDP) Hemogram (CBC + Retic + PS)

Coagulation Screening for Suspected Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) is a comprehensive panel of tests. This panel includes Prothrombin Time (PT), Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT), International Normalized Ratio (INR), Fibrinogen, D-Dimer, Fibrin Degradation Products (FDP), and a full Hemogram with Reticulocyte Count and Peripheral Smear (CBC + Retic + PS). This comprehensive set of tests is crucial for diagnosing and managing DIC, a severe condition where blood clots form throughout the body's small vessels.

Understanding your clotting factors and hemogram can help prevent significant health issues such as organ damage, severe bleeding, and even death. This screening is often used in critical care settings or when a patient presents with symptoms indicative of DIC.

Frequently Asked Questions

This test is usually ordered when a patient presents with symptoms indicative of DIC, such as unexplained bleeding, blood clots, organ dysfunction, or when DIC is suspected due to underlying conditions like sepsis, trauma, or cancer.

This test provides detailed information about your blood's ability to clot and the components of your blood, aiding in the diagnosis and management of DIC.

The frequency of testing depends on the severity of the condition, the patient's response to treatment, and the underlying cause of DIC. Your doctor will provide guidance based on your specific medical condition.

Normal values may vary among different labs. Your doctor will interpret your results based on the lab's reference values and your specific medical history.

Always inform your doctor about any medications or supplements you're taking, as some can influence test results. Staying well-hydrated is also beneficial.

Certain medications, liver disease, and conditions that cause excessive bleeding or clotting can affect the results. Other factors include pregnancy, recent surgery, and certain types of cancer.

Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, smoking, and alcohol consumption can influence your body's coagulation system and thus affect test results. Medication changes can also alter the results.

Non-modifiable factors include genetics, age, and underlying conditions such as cancer or autoimmune diseases.

If you have abnormal test results, you should consult with a hematologist or your primary care doctor for further guidance and treatment planning.

Low fibrinogen levels may indicate a bleeding disorder, liver disease, or malnutrition. However, in the context of DIC, it may suggest extensive clotting has consumed the available fibrinogen.

Both D-dimer and FDP tests indicate the presence of clot breakdown products in the blood, suggesting the ongoing formation and breakdown of clots characteristic of DIC.

Yes, this test can help identify several blood disorders, including DIC, which is characterized by abnormal blood clotting.

A high INR often means your blood is taking longer to clot, which can increase the risk of bleeding.

Being aware of your body's coagulation abilities is a critical aspect of maintaining your health, especially when a severe condition like DIC is suspected. The coagulation screening panel, combined with careful clinical evaluation, provides valuable information to diagnose potential disorders and manage treatments. It's crucial to follow your doctor's advice and maintain a balanced lifestyle for optimal health outcomes.
