Episode 2: Resus Room Blood Products

March 13, 2017

In my mind this is probably the first real episode of the podcast. 

Time and time again and see people pontificate over the amount of blood to give and whether it's being used for resuscitation or oxygen exchange or both and what cut off to use so I figured why not start with some basic numbers and fun facts on the ultimate colloid. 

Some useful links mentioned in the podcast: 

The JPAC transfusion handbook. PDF.

Hema-Quebec 

That animal model crit/concentration paper .

That paper where they bled healthy volunteers and gave them back their blood.
