Bala, M., Kaufman, T., Keidar, A., et al. (2014). Defining the Need for Blood and Blood Products Transfusion Following Suicide Bombing Attacks on a Civilian Population: A Level I Single-Centre Experience. (Abstract only.) 45(1):50-5.
This study highlights findings specific to blood and blood product transfusions following suicide bombings in Israel from 2000 to 2005. The authors share that more than one third of casualties received transfusions (mainly in the first two hours post-incident). One-tenth of casualties received a massive transfusion. Healthcare facilities can incorporate the data from this study into their mass casualty incident response plans.
