1.5. Blood & Fluid Therapy: Shock

An expanding body of recent literature has focused on the role of hemostatic resuscitation as part of massive transfusion to avoid the coagulopathy and associated morbidity seen after large volume blood transfusion.


Course Description

An expanding body of recent literature has focused on the role of hemostatic resuscitation as part of massive transfusion to avoid the coagulopathy and associated morbidity seen after large volume blood transfusion. Massive transfusion (MT) protocols have emphasized the importance of ratio-based transfusion of hemostatic blood components relative to packed red blood cells (PRBCs), and multiple recent studies have sought to identify the ideal ratios of fresh frozen plasma (FFP), platelets, and cryoprecipitate that should be used as part of the massive transfusion resuscitation strategy.

Objectives include: 

  • Define Types of Shock
  • Discuss and Understand Pathophysiology of Shock
  • Understand and Discuss the Principles of Fluid Resuscitation
  • Discuss the Complications of Fluid Resuscitation
  • Identify and Understand Vascular Access 
  • Discuss Hematological Issues Relates to Resuscitation
