In brief: Emergently
Dic (disseminated intravascular coagulation) is an emergency in any situation.
The patient with dic has, for one of several reasons, consumed elements in her blood which are needed to cause blood to clot. Without the ability to clot, she will bleed continuously until something is done to replace the "clotting factors" or otherwise arrest the bleeding, e.g., hysterectomy.
