Whilst this association may be related to a mortality bias present in these studies, there has been an overall tendency towards a 1:1 FFP:PRBC ratio in massive transfusion guidelines worldwide. The aim of this study was to retrospectively review the administration of FFP in patients undergoing massive… CONTINUE READING
