Hemorrhagic shock – a holistic view


Geir Strandenes’ talk at The Bick Sick in Zermatt, 2018.

Geir does a tour de force on blood transfusion, its history, physiology, the evidence base and ongoing developments in prehospital transfusion practice in both civilian and military settings. He specifically adresses how to apply principles of damage control resuscitation to remote locations and the introduction of fresh whole blood prehospitally from the point of injury onward.

Geir represents the THOR network (Trauma Hemostasis and Oxygenation Research network). You can find a lot more information on their website.
