Recent studies have shown increased survival benefits when a high fresh frozen plasma (FFP) to packed red blood cell (PRBC) ratio is used during trauma resuscitation. However, some reports have raised questions about the effect of higher FFP:PRBC transfusion ratios. The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of high FFP:PRBC ratios in injured patients with regard to survival and morbidity in a single tertiary emergency center in Japan. This study examined severe trauma patients who… CONTINUE READING
