The August 2018 Trauma MedEd Newsletter Is Here!

Welcome to the current newsletter. This is part 1 of 2 issues where I discuss the massive transfusion protocol (MTP). Here are some of the things I cover:

  • Introduction to MTP
  • Building your own MTP
  • Key factors in the MTP
  • When to activate it
  • How to analyze it

The September issue will be released to subscribers late this month and will cover the product ratio question, using TEG in the MTP, TXA, and that old yet new thing, whole blood. I’ll release it to everyone in October, so subscribe now if you want it sooner!
