Since 2013, rotational thromboelastometry has been available in our hospital to assess coagulopathy. The aim of the study was to retrospectively evaluate the effect of thromboelastometry testing in cardiac surgery patients. Altogether 177 patients from 2012 and 177 patients from 2014 were included. In 2014, the thromboelastometry testing was performed on 56 patients. The mean blood drainage volume decreased and the number of patients receiving platelets decreased between 2012 and 2014. In addition, the use of fresh frozen plasma units decreased, and the use of prothrombin complex concentrate increased in 2014. When studied separately, the patients with a thromboelastometry testing received platelets, fresh frozen plasma, fibrinogen and prothrombin complex concentrate more often, but smaller amounts of red blood cells. In conclusion, after implementing the thromboelastometry testing to the practice, the blood products were given more cautiously overall. The use of thromboelastometry testing was associated with increased possibility to receive coagulation product transfusions. However, it appears that thromboelastometry testing was mostly used to assist in management of major bleeding.
