  1. Significances (p-values) of the interaction effects. The left half of the table (a) shows the interaction between temperature (33°C versus 37°C) and solution (Und. = undiluted, RA, or HES), according to a two-way ANOVA (Temperature X Solution).
  2. The right half of the table (b) shows the interaction between solution (RA or HES) and added coagulation factor (Control, i.e., no addition of coagulation factor, fibrinogen or fibrinogen with FXIII), according to a three-way ANOVA (Temperature X Solution X Coagulation Factor). Not shown from the latter ANOVA are the interactions of Temperature X Coagulation Factor. None of these interactions were significant. The maximal clot strength is presented as G'max for Fib1 (without platelet inhibition) and G'max for Fib2 (with platelet inhibition). Platelet-dependent clot strength is presented by the difference between G'max for Fib1 and that for Fib2, denoted as G'max Fib1-2. RA is Ringer’s acetate solution. HES is hydroxyethyl starch in saline. Interactions marked with - were not significant. N = 10.
