Civilian Walking Blood Bank Emergency Preparedness Plan

Holcomb, J., Spinella, P., Oveland Apelseth, T., et al. (2021). Civilian Walking Blood Bank Emergency Preparedness Plan. Transfusion. 61(S1): S313-S325.
The authors provide recommendations for providing blood to bleeding patients when there are blood shortages. A multidisciplinary, international group of clinicians developed a planning document and found precedent in remote locations, battlefields, and civilian contexts. They highlight the importance of planning and discuss the possibility of transfusing emergency untested whole blood when no blood is otherwise available.
