Transfusion protocol improves survival rate of wounded troops, study finds

AABB SmartBrief | Jul 17, 2014

The use of a new military blood-transfusion protocol beginning 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, troops who died in the hospital were more likely to have been severely wounded. Stars and Stripes (07/16)
