Critical Care SmartBrief | Jul 18, 2014

The implementation of a new military blood transfusion protocol in 2006 was associated with a reduction in preventable deaths at forward-based hospitals, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The protocol -- called damage control resuscitation -- changed the ratio of blood components given to bleeding patients. After the change was implemented, soldiers who died in the hospital were more likely to be severely injured. Stars and Stripes (07/16)
