Abstract

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is an acquired syndrome characterized by intravascular activation of coagulation. There is a wide variety of etiologies that can lead to DIC, with sepsis at the forefront. DIC presents in just under 20% of ICU admissions, with mortality rates up to 78%. The following poster will provide a comprehensive review behind this complex disease process, highlighting the underlying pathophysiology, significance, and implications for nursing practice.
