Detailed Description

Boston MedFlight, a critical care transport organization, based on a consortium of the academic medical centers in Boston, will begin carrying PRBC in 2019. The program is intended to provide BMF clinicians with 24-hour immediate access to appropriate blood products to be utilized if needed for patients following life-threatening illness or injury. The four fundamental goals of this program are: save lives' ensure transfusion safety; minimize blood product waste; and conduct continuous quality assurance. Our goal is to observationally evaluate this new protocol of administering blood products in the pre-hospital setting. We will collect data on patients with hemorrhagic shock being transported by Boston MedFlight, who receive or would have been eligible to receive pre-hospital blood transfusion by the inclusion criteria.
