Answer

Base therapeutic decisions on clinical and laboratory evaluation of hemostasis. In cases of low-grade DIC, therapy other than supportive care may not be warranted or may include antiplatelet agents or subcutaneous heparin; treatment decisions should be based on clinical and laboratory evaluation of hemostasis.
