Abstract Number: PB0306
Meeting: ISTH 2021 Congress
Background: Covid 19 was first reported in the early of march 2020, increasingly rapidly and today reaching 1,386,556 cases. Meanwhile the worldwide cases reach 117,727,822 cases as reported at 9 of march 2021. Clotting plays a big role in mortality and morbidity of Covid-19 infection, Ddimer a fibrin degradation product was used as a marker of hypercoagulable state were studied among patients admitted in Murni Teguh Memorial Hospital (MTMH) between March 2020 until February 2021.
Aims: This study aims to study the relationship between the increase of Ddimer levels and the number of deaths among Covid 19 patients.
Methods: This is a cross-sectional study to investigate the increase of Ddimer levels among the death cases in Covid 19 patients.
Results: A total of 981 covid 19 cases admitted at MTMH with the number of deaths 156 cases (15.8%), The ddimer level was elevated in 80.7% death cases. There was no statistical difference within the survive and death cases. (p= 0.085). The mortality rate of the renal failure ongoing dialysis with covid 19 was 100 % with ddimer level above 2 (cut off level 0.5). Prothrombin time and Activated partial thromboplastin time levels were elevated in 57 % of death cases and there was a statistical difference between the survival and death cases (p=0.035).
Conclusions: Ddimer levels were elevated in 80.7 of death cases in Covid 19 patients, with 57 % cases elevated in prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time.
