Case Of The Month

We've all had them - That particular patient that stands out for whatever reason and makes you think "I wish I could discuss this with some of my colleagues to see if they would have done the same thing".

So we are going to use this space to do just that - We'll put up a recent case that one of us has seen and which we think others would benefit from discussing. Feel free to add comments and opinion or to share your experience.

 By the way - this isn't supposed to be an exam; just a way of teasing out some of the more thorny issues that we intensivists face on a regular basis.

Crit care_challenge

The 7th installment of the NEJM's critical care series presented us with an elderly man with sepsis who acutely coagulopathic and who has slight bleeding from his abdominal wound and from around his arterial and central venous catheters. His Hb is 89 and he is haemodynamically stable. How aggressively would you elect to manage this man's coagulopathy?
