Treatment for DIC
The main goal of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation treatment is to control the clotting problems and bleeding. For this, a reversal of the primary cause and its severity is required. For those suffering from acute DIC, an emergency treatment may be required at the hospital. Treatment may include medicines, blood transfusions and oxygen therapy where oxygen is provided through mask, nasal prongs or breathing tube that goes to the windpipe. Blood transfusion is done to replace the blood that has been lost. For chronic DIC sufferers, the treatment will more likely focus on clotting problems. An anticoagulant or blood thinner may be used to prevent the formation of new blood clots.
