Evaluation of survival rates for prehospital plasma in patients with traumatic brain injury

Takeaway

  • Pre-hospital plasma administration to patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is associated with improved survival, especially in patients with polytrauma and hemorrhagic shock.

Why this matters

    Pre-hospital plasma resuscitation has been shown to improve 30-day survival in patients with severe head injury but has not been evaluated in patients with TBI. Identifying patients who will benefit from such interventions will enable targeted resources and improved outcomes.
