Abstract

Bleeding can be life-threatening during tracheostomy. This possibility is a major concern in liver transplant recipients with severe thrombocytopenia and hepatic coagulopathy. Point-of Care (POC) devices such as ROTEM™ provide more detailed hemostasis information than Standard Laboratory Tests (SLT). However, many liver transplant centers do not use POC coagulation assessment and elect to prophylactically transfuse platelets in the setting of severe thrombocytopenia. We present a case of ROTEM™ guided, blood product free, percutaneous tracheostomy in a liver transplant patient with severe thrombocytopenia (10/nl).
