Association of D-dimer elevation with inflammation and organ dysfunction in ICU patients with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China: a retrospective observational study

Dynamic changes in the SOFA score and inflammation markers in patients with different D-dimer levels. (A) SOFA score (B) CRP (C) PCT (D) IL-6 (E) Ferritin (F) Neutrophil. (G)Lymphocyte (H) LDH. D1: 1.5≤D-dimer

Figure 5. Dynamic changes in the SOFA score and inflammation markers in patients with different D-dimer levels. (A) SOFA score (B) CRP (C) PCT (D) IL-6 (E) Ferritin (F) Neutrophil. (G)Lymphocyte (H) LDH. D1: 1.5≤D-dimer<10μg/mL, D2: 10≤D-dimer<40μg/mL. SOFA: sequential organ failure assessment, CRP: c-reactive protein, PCT: procalcitonin, IL-6: Interleukin-6, LDH: Lactate dehydrogenase. *P<0.05, **P<0.01 with D1 group vs. D2 group.
