CONGRESS 2023 - Blood on Board

The lecture will include a basic introduction to a busy mixed urban and rural Helicopter Emergency Medical Service in the East of England and the logistics of carrying and administering blood products to multiply injured, major trauma patients. The types of patients that typically require a transfusion will be presented and we will hear from patients that have since recovered and how they feel about having received a prehospital transfusion.
