Below is a list of our most frequently asked questions.
What is the difference between classical thromboelastography and ROTEM®?
The ROTEM® technology avoids several limitations of traditional instruments for thrombelastography, especially the susceptibility to mechanical shocks and vibrations. Clot stability is detected simultaneously on 4- channels with an innovative shock resistant opto-mechanical detection method. The operation is very simple: intuitive touchscreen operated software.
Can ROTEM® data be exported?
What is the advantage of ROTEM® analysis over classical thromboelastography or related methods?
What is the economical justification for introducing new tests?
ROTEM® is very cost efficient when compared to other whole blood systems.
What can be potentially saved by ROTEM® analysis?
- Factor concentrates, fresh frozen plasma, cryoprecipitate, platelet concentrates
- Antifibrinolytic drugs, other drugs
- Surgery time and patient time in the ICU
- Total time in the hospital and for recovery
