Answer

Patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) may be evaluated in an outpatient setting. Inpatient evaluation is required if the patient presents with a significant clinical event. Patients with catastrophic APS (CAPS) require intense observation and treatment, often in an intensive care unit.
