Hosted by the Prehospital Care Research Forum (PCRF) and sponsored by Fisdap, the PCRF Journal Club is a live podcast series featuring round-table discussions of new EMS research.
Out for Blood! Is it time for EMS to give blood products in hemorrhagic shock?
Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death following injury. Large volume crystalloid resuscitation, the traditional prehospital intervention, may cause harm. The benefits of prehospital packed red blood cells (PRBCs), plasma, or transfusion of both products compared to crystalloids is unknown. Join us as we discuss the latest research from the PAMPer trial aimed to determine whether prehospital blood products reduce 30-day mortality in patients at risk for hemorrhagic shock compared with crystalloid only resuscitation.
