Guideline Recommendation:

Recommends the early and repeated monitoring of hemostasis, using either a traditional laboratory determination such as prothrombin time (PT)/international normalised ratio (INR), Clauss fibrinogen level and platelet count and/or point-of-care (POC) PT/INR and/or a viscoelastic method.

Recommends that resuscitation measures be continued using a goal-directed strategy, guided by standard laboratory coagulation values and/or viscoelastic methods.
