National Blood Transfusion Committees: Rolling programme of virtual education: Pre-hospital blood transfusion
In response to social distancing requirements and the on-going uncertainty of the recommencing of face-to-face meetings, the national blood transfusion committee (NBTC) approved a proposal for regional transfusion committees (RTC) to work together to produce a rolling programme of virtual education sessions accessible nationally. This session will be on ‘pre-hospital blood transfusion’ and the on-going work as part of the RePhill trial. The principal objective of this trial is to investigate the clinical effectiveness of pre-hospital blood products (PHPB) resuscitation compared to the current standard care of restricted crystalloid-based resuscitation in participants suffering from major traumatic haemorrhage.
