What we are studying
Patients age 60 years or older who are hospitalized for an acute medical illness may be eligible for participation in this study. Participating in this study involves having one blood sample collected within 24 hours of admission to the hospital. This blood sample will be sent to a lab to have the level of d-dimer in the blood measured. In addition to this blood sample, the study team will also do a medical record review to collect information on participant's condition, and treatments given.
Participants will receive a $10.00 gift card following completion of their participation in the study.
