  1. Clinical signs of hemostatic alterations (total n=18) in course of ICU stay.
  2. Hemostatic complications comprising bleeding events and thromboembolic events during intensive care for COVID-19. Bleeding events were assessed according to definitions by Schulman et al. [12] and Kaatz et al. [13]. Within the major bleeding group two patients had intracranial bleeding and one patient developed an extensive subcutaneous hematoma after central venous catheter placement. Thromboembolic events were included in the analysis in case they had been diagnosed by standardized ultrasound examinations or CT scans.
