Table 3 Comparison of the TEG results of different groups of cats categorized by the grade of platelet clumping

From: Preliminary reference intervals and the impact of citrate storage time for thrombelastography in cats including delta and the velocity curve

Group of cats Low grade of clumping High grade of clumping p-value
