This study will evaluate the performance of the Quantra System comprised of the Quantra Hemostasis Analyzer with the QStat Cartridge in trauma patients and obstetric patients with postpartum hemorrhage.

Official Title

Evaluation of the Clinical Performance of the Quantra System With the QStat Cartridge in Trauma and Obstetric Hemorrhage


The Quantra System is a fully integrated and automated in vitro diagnostic device which uses SEER Sonorheometry, an ultrasound-based technology, to characterize the viscoelastic properties of a whole blood sample during coagulation. The QStat Cartridge was developed to monitor hemostasis in patients that may experience a range of coagulopathies of various etiologies including fibrinolytic defects. This includes the trauma, obstetric hemorrhage and liver transplant populations. The cartridge consists of four independent channels each containing different sets of reagents, which provide four measurements performed in parallel yielding five parameters that depict the functional status of a patient's coagulation system.

This prospective, observational pilot study will evaluate the performance of the Quantra System with the QStat Cartridge as compared to comparable measures using conventional viscoelastic testing methods.

Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • Subject is ≥ 18 years of age
  • Subject is a trauma patient experiencing major trauma (preferably requiring the highest level of team activation) with active bleeding or deemed at high risk of significant bleeding according to mechanism of injury.and is a candidate for a ROTEM test to be performed to access coagulopathy.


-Subject is an obstetric patient experiencing post-partum hemorrhage based on one of the following conditions: estimated blood loss during delivery >1000 mL; placental abruption with hemorrhage of any quantity; clinically suspected DIC; pregnancy resulted in fetal demise with hemorrhage of any quantity; or is under consideration for administration of tranexamic acid for treatment of hemorrhage.

You CAN'T join if...

  • Subject is younger than 18 years of age
  • Subject presents for a procedure intended to abort a pregnancy for reasons other than medical necessity
  • Subject is known to have received antifibrinolytic therapy immediately prior to presentation to trauma unit
  • Subject is currently enrolled in a distinct study that might confound the results of the proposed study
  • Subject is affected by a condition that, in the opinion of the clinical team, may pose additional risks.
