More and more trauma surgeons are asking their hospitals when they can get low-titer, cold-stored, group O whole blood ("trauma whole blood"). This product, discussed in depth in episode 040CE, is one that comes with lots of choices, and Drs. David Oh and Mike Goodman from Hoxworth Blood Center and the University of Cincinnati led their hospital through those decisions. They join me to share their insights, lessons learned, and practical tips.

Please note: This is not intended to be a recipe! Every facility must make their own decisions on how to implement trauma whole blood (if they do so at all!). This interview is meant to demonstrate how one facility successfully introduced the product, and what they learned while doing so.
