Dilutional Thrombocytopenia

If a patient receives a massive transfusion (usually over 15 units of Red Blood Cells), dilutional thrombocytopenia may result. This thrombocytopenia is transient and the platelet count will usually return to normal once the patient's circulation equilibrates. However, platelet concentrates may need to be administered in the interim.
