Abstract: We found that about 50% of the patients admitted to the ICU had at least one platelet count of less than 150 x 10(9)/L during their ICU stay. Patients who developed thrombocytopenia were more likely to die, required longer duration of mechanical ventilation, and were more likely to require blood product transfusion. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia was frequently suspected but did not develop in these critically ill patients.
