Abstract

: The current study aimed to measure the effects of Plasma-Lyte 148 solution on the blood coagulation profile according to the hemodilution level using rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) tests. Venous blood was collected from 12 healthy volunteers and divided into four specimen bottles, which were diluted at different levels with Plasma-Lyte 148 (0, 20, 40, and 60%). Following this, ROTEM tests were performed on the study samples. We found that as the hemodilution level increased, the ROTEM values showed a hypocoagulable pattern. The change rate of the maximum clot firmness (MCF) of INTEM was greater in the 40 (P = 0.015) and 60% (P < 0.001) dilutions than it was in the 20% dilution. Greater lengthening of the clot formation time of EXTEM was observed in the 60% dilution than it was in the 20% dilution (P < 0.001). The alpha-angle of EXTEM showed a greater decrease in the 60% dilution than it did in the 20% dilution (P < 0.001). A larger change rate of the MCF of EXTEM was observed in the 40 (P = 0.003) and 60% (P < 0.001) dilutions than it was in the 20% dilution. A greater decrease in the MCF of FIBTEM was identified in the 40 (P = 0.009) and 60% (P < 0.001) dilutions than in the 20% dilution. All coagulation pathways exhibited hypocoagulable patterns as the hemodilution level increased. However, most of the mean values of ROTEM parameters were within the normal reference range, except for those of the 60% dilution.
