We report a case in which thrombelastography (TEG) and Sonoclot analysis were used for diagnosis and treatment decisions in a patient with abruptio placentae and disseminated intravascular coagulation. In addition to providing enough information for evaluation and treatment of this patient, the TEG and Sonoclot results were obtained more quickly, with smaller blood samples and with less expense to the patient in comparison to the standard coagulation tests in our institution. Although the TEG and Sonoclot results were assessed independently of the other test and each provided similar information in this case, the TEG may be the preferred tool in evaluating coagulopathies, based on computerization and strong literature support.
