Walking Blood Bank A Plan to Ensure Self-Sufficiency in an Era of Blood Shortage

Brigmon, E.P., Cirone, J., Harrell, K., et al. (2024). Walking Blood Bank: A Plan to Ensure Self-Sufficiency in an Era of Blood Shortage. Trauma Surgery Acute Care Open. 9(Suppl 1):e001151.
The authors describe a Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Council program to supply emergency blood products to the region whereby preselected blood donors function as a “walking blood bank,” donating blood in the event of a mass casualty incident. The blood would be rapidly and rigorously screened and tested before being used to treat patients, potentially saving lives, and bolstering local supply.
