The value of D-dimer in the detection of COVID-19



Severe acute respiratory infection symptoms will appear in the early stage of new coronavirus pneumonia, and some patients will rapidly develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), coagulation dysfunction, acute respiratory failure and other serious complications.

The article published in JAMA also conducted a comparative study of laboratory indicators for surviving patients and deceased patients, and found that compared with surviving patients, the D-dimer results were normal, and the D-dimer levels of deceased patients continued to rise, it broke through the normal value in 7-9 days and remained at a high level since then.

In summary, the data proves that patients with severe infection of new coronavirus pneumonia have elevated D-dimer, suggesting that there may be hyperfibrinolysis.


BSBE's MDC3500 coagulation analyzer, 300 TEST/H, the fastest comprehensive processing of specimens, anti-interference of special specimens such as hyperlipidemia, jaundice, hemolysis, etc., can quickly and accurately provide coagulation results.
