The following survey is sponsored by the DIC Subcommittee with the aim to generate insight in the physician's approach to the diagnosis and treatment of DIC.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a syndrome characterized by the systemic activation of blood coagulation which can lead to thrombosis of small- and medium-sized vessels and eventually organ dysfunction. In addition, the consumption of platelets and coagulation factors may predispose patients with DIC to bleeding events.

DIC is diagnosed by clinical signs and symptoms, laboratory tests, and the combination of clinical and laboratory parameters into diagnostic scores. Non-overt DIC would represent subtle haemostatic dysfunction while overt DIC represents its decompensated phase.

The cornerstone of the management of DIC remains the treatment of the underlying condition triggering the coagulopathy. However, additional treatment aiming at the coagulation abnormalities may be required. In general, the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to patients with DIC remains difficult.
