Due to the high prevalence of coagulopathy among patients at the intensive care unit (ICU), administration of Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) to critically ill patients is common practice. Thirteen per cent of ICU patients receives FFP during their stay at the ICU and this can be up to 60% in specific ICU patient populations. Nevertheless, knowledge regarding the identification of coagulopathy as well as the efficacy and adverse effects of FFP is still scarce. Marcella Müller examines the risk benefit balance of FFP transfusion.
