There is one group of people that have seen their fair share of traumatic injuries – battlefield medics. After being exposed to a great amount of bleeding incidents, it is no surprise that battlefield medicine has come up with a proven strategy for a blood transfusion that saves lives. By using a balanced blend of blood products: 1 part plasma, 1 part platelets, and 1 part red blood cells, medics have been able to “more effectively combats the impact of blood loss and uncontrolled bleeding.”
A clinical trial has proven that this blood mix saves lives. Now that the research backs up this claim, it is time to adopt this blood transfusion “recipe” in local hospitals.
