Coagulopathy associated with COVID 19
Emerging data from Europe and some centres in UK, indicates that venous thromboembolism (VTE), mainly pulmonary embolism (PE), is major problem in COVID patients. In this retrospective-prospective: multicentre study, investigators will document the patient characteristics, presenting haematological parameters and associated comorbidities and their association with bleeding, thrombosis and mortality in patients admitted for hospital treatment. Determining the predictive value of patient characteristics and presenting laboratory measurements for clinical outcomes in these patients will allow us to optimise management of these patients in the future. Furthermore, by comparing these data with data from patients without Covid-19, investigators will be able to modify existing protocols and tailor them to the management of COVID -19.
