Thromboelastography to Assess Hemostatic Changes in Patients Undergoing Elective Cesarean Delivery.

The purpose of the study is to assess the coagulation changes that occur in patients undergoing elective 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.
