In brief: Varies

DIC can occur in this setting, especially if infection or what we call sepsis sets in.
DIC can be low grade, and just be noted by some findings in the lab tests, or it could be fulminant, causing clotting problems which can be seen as a tendency to bleed from needlesticks, IV lines, and various mucous membranes. All these can go from mild to severe. It is a complication which is not so common.
