PHARM Podcast 39 – Haemorrhagic shock in remote settings with the THREE RESUSCITEERS
Dr Casey Parker Dr Amit Maini Dr Michelle Johnston
Hi there folks! Another first for the PHARM podcast! A three way interview from across Australia with :
What we discuss over the 50 minute session is the current thinking amongst peer Emergency medicine and Critical care providers on how to manage the haemorrhagic shock setting, in particular in remote settings with limited resources.
We tackle the controversies of permissive hypotensive resuscitation in children and head injured patients, the use of vasopressors, the role of crystalloids . What role does haemostatic resuscitation have and what agents might be helpful? What is the current evidence base for all this?
This month quite fortuitously there have been two great articles from Dr Karim Brohi and co-authors in the British Medical Journal on fluid resuscitation in trauma and the role of tranexamic acid.
My mate Ben Meadley has posted about these articles here on his awesome blog site, HERE : Some papers from the king of trauma
Also there was an excellent presentation on prehospital blood product resuscitation and haemostatic strategies by Dr Stuart Gillon last year.
ANd if you have not already listened to this excellent podcast from EmCrit and Karim Brohi, check it out here!
But THERE IS MORE!
