Abstract

Coagulation studies were performed on nine children with burns. Four of these children received treatment which included intravenous dextran; all four showed abnormalities of coagulation and two of them developed a bleeding state. No abnormalities of haemostasis were detected in the remaining five children who had comparable degrees of burns but whose treatment did not include intravenous dextran.
