Transfusion in Major Trauma: The PROPPR Trial
What should we be transfusing in major trauma?
How does this affect my practice?
A 1:1:1 transfusion practice is safe and can decrease mortality from hemorrhage in major trauma
Other points: control bleeding, permissive hypotension, avoid crystalloids, use TEG to guide therapy (TXA etc)
