This table provides the preoperative TEG^{®} measurements for both the PR and the
SR groups. These measurements include R (clotting time), SP (earliest clotting
activity), Δ (R-SP), K (speed of clot formation), α (rate of clot strengthening), MA
(maximum clot strength), and G (overall clot strength). |

Data are presented as mean ± SD and median [1st Quartile, 3rd Quartile]. Two-tailed
P value determined using Mann-Whitney U test. There were no statistically significant
differences between the two groups. SD = Standard Deviation; PR = propofol/
remifentanyl; SR = sevoflurane/remifentanyl |
