I’m finally back on track! After a multi-month hiatus, the next Trauma MedEd newsletter will be released at the end of next week. In this issue, I will finish my coverage of the Massive Transfusion Protocol (MTP).
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!
Well readers, I’ve been promising this for many months. And I’ve finally finished it! The next Trauma MedEd newsletter is ready!
A growing number of hospitals have a “hybrid OR.” This newsletter will answer all your questions about what it is, and what you can do in it. It can be a handy dandy tool for trauma cases, but there are a number of things you need to think about before you use it for the first time.
In this issue I’ll cover:
What exactly is a hybrid OR?
Why use one for trauma?
How useful is it, really?
What types of trauma cases can it be used for?
What do I need to think about before I use it for trauma?
