Abstract

Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation is not uncommon in the ICU. Presentations can vary from unexpected DVT or PE to severe generalized bleeding. This review discusses the etiology as well as the present understanding of the underlying pathophysiology in some details. This review will enable the intensivist to understand the background for the diagnosis and new innovative ways of treatment of DIC.
