Producción científica: Articlerevisión exhaustiva


Transfusion of blood products to a hemorrhaging pediatric trauma patient requires seamless partnership and communication between trauma, emergency department, critical care, and transfusion team members. To avoid confusion and delays, understanding of blood banking principles and mutually agreed upon procedures and policies must be regularly updated as knowledge evolves. Because pediatric patients require specialized considerations distinct from those in adults, this brief review covers transfusion principles, policies, and procedures specific to the resuscitation of pediatric trauma patients.
