Blood Component Transfusions in Mass Casualty Events

Ramsey, G. (2017). Blood Component Transfusions in Mass Casualty Events. Vox Sanguinis. 112: 648-659.
The author describes the results of a literature review (n=24 articles) on mass casualty incident blood component usage (articles on natural disasters were excluded). He writes, “Five RBCs per admission would have sufficed for 87% of events” and notes that more current data would help establish predictive models.
