A cohort study of 676 patients indicates D-dimer is a critical risk factor for the mortality of COVID-19

Fig 1

Dynamical changes of the risk factors in the patients with COVID-19 during hospitalization.

Figure shows dynamical changes of CRP (A), LDH (B), PCT(C) and D-dimer (D) in patients within 15days from admission onset. We stratified the patients into two subgroups: non-survivals and survivals. The case numbers in the dynamic analysis are shown as italics in the pictures. Data represent mean ± SD. Abbreviations: D-dimer, Dimerized plasmin fragment D; CRP, C-reactive protein; LDH, lactate dehydrogenase; PCT, procalcitonin.
