1:1:1 Ratio of Massive Transfusion
December 12, 2012, 1:00 p.m.
Event Description: Patients suffering from traumatic injuries require aggressive treatment. Massive blood loss may be apparent but the mechanism to stop the bleeding may not. The use of a Massive Transfusion Protocol (MTP) is necessary for these patients in order to stabilize the patient and stop the bleeding. But what is the appropriate ratio of blood products needed for these patients? This program will look at the use of a 1:1:1 ratio of blood products and the benefits of this ratio.
