Abstract

Thrombelastography (TEG) was first introduced in 1948 by Hartert and is now used to examine coagulation in a wide range of clinical research settings. TEG measures the elastic properties of whole blood clots as they are formed. A graphic profile of the clot analysis is produced on a chart recorder. Manual evaluation of the graphic profile provides useful information regarding the status of coagulation. The basic theory and technology is demonstrated through this poster presentation.
