Platelet Mapping and Rotems

Recommended Posts

We have 3 TEG 3000s in the blood bank.  Our Core lab has just brought in 4 Rotems and we would desperately love to get the TEGs out of the blood banks.  The problem is that the Rotems do not run platelet mappings and the TEG does.  We were told that running the Rotem with the drug/aspirin cartridge on Verify Now would provide comparable result as the platelet mapping.  Our Medical Director said the Rotems/Verify Now result does not provide results for platelet inhibition which he thinks is needed.  Are there any location that use the Rotems/Verify Now for their patient and what is done for platelet inhibition?  Any assistance is very appreciated.
