Blood product ratio in acute traumatic coagulopathy--effect on mortality in a Scandinavian level 1 trauma centre

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Trauma is the leading cause of loss of life expectancy worldwide. In the most seriously injured patients, coagulopathy is often present on admission. Therefore, transfusion strategies to increase the ratio of plasma (FFP) and platelets (PLT) to red blood cells (RBC), simulating whole blood, have been introduced. Several studies report that higher ratios improve survival in massively bleeding patients. Here, the aim was to investigate the potential effect of increased FFP and PLT to RBC on mortality in trauma patients.
