Dunbar, N. and Yazer, M. (2017). Safety of the Use of Group A Plasma in Trauma: The STAT Study. (Abstract only.) Transfusion. 57(8):1879-1884.
This study examined the use of thawed group A plasma for the initial resuscitation of trauma patients (i.e., before blood type is known). There was no difference in in-hospital mortality, early mortality, or hospital length of stay for the patients treated with group A plasma versus those treated with group B and AB.
