D-Dimer Elevation in COVID-19 Patients: A Predictor of Mortality

Remya .K

Abstract: COVID-19 is a systemic infection that significantly impacts the hematopoietic system and haemostasis. Blood hypercoagulability is common among hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Although elevated D-Dimer levels are frequently observed, their progressive rise over an illness is particularly linked to the condition worsening. The D-dimer level is a promising biomarker for predicting death in COVID-19 patients.
