The SSC Subcommittees on Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) and Women's Issues in Thrombosis and Hemostasis have launched a global registry of DIC in pregnancy. 

DIC is a serious obstetric complication that contributes to increased maternal morbidity and mortality. The rate and etiology of DIC during pregnancy vary globally. There are only a few publications that provide an international or global perspective to the prevalence and diagnosis of DIC in pregnancy. The diagnosis is mostly based on the clinical impression of the attending physician, and loosely on some laboratory tests and there is a considerable controversy among clinicians with an overlap at times, with obstetrical hemorrhage.

If you have diagnosed or managed a case of DIC during pregnancy, labor and delivery, or immediate post-partum period your are encouraged to participate in this project.

Dear Vaughan, the questionnaire is built in a way that it allows us to distinguish between the different entities, as we have included a separate section to the clinical diagnosis at the time of DIC. The combination of the clinical diagnosis with the laboratory results will help us make such distinction between the clinical phenotype. If that doesn't come across we will be happy to have your thoughts on the matter. Best regards, Offer and Maha

I think there has to be a clear distinction between women showing the classic low fibrinogen, raised D-dimers and low platelets due to haemorrhage and those due to amniotic emboli, retained products post demise of the fetus and infection.
