Thromboelastography in Non-elective Cesarean Delivery

The purpose of the study is to assess the coagulation changes that occur in laboring patients undergoing non-elective (intrapartum)Cesarean delivery using thromboelastography (TEG). We will compare coagulation data to assess potential coagulation changes associated with hemoglobin changes before and after surgery, and related to estimated blood loss.
