Managing the Surge in Demand for Blood Following Mass Casualty Events Early Automatic Restocking May Preserve Red Cell Supply
Glasgow, S., Vasilakis, C., Perkins, Z., et al. (2016). Managing the Surge in Demand for Blood Following Mass Casualty Events: Early Automatic Restocking May Preserve Red Cell Supply. (Abstract only.) The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery. 81(1): 50-57.
In this article, the authors describe the development of a computerized simulation model of a major trauma transfusion system. After 35,000 simulations, the authors found positive results for the early-automated push approach to restocking red blood cells compared with holding excess stock permanently at trauma centers.
