In the interview we briefly discuss the role of fibrinogen in the acquired coagulopathy that often develops during major haemorrhage, the historical treatments used (FFP, cryoprecipitate), the history of fibrinogen concentrate and where we think fibrinogen concentrate might fit into the current management of major haemorrhage - both in tertiary but also remote, regional and retrieval situations.

Come and join us by registering for the 3rd Obstetric Intensive Care Symposium 23rd – 24th February 2018 Adelaide Oval - Some great talks and workshops on bleeding management
Some great talks, posters and presentation featuring Patient Blood Management , POC and ROTEM. Looking forward to the renames "BLOOD" in 2018 .
We had a great week installing and training the trauma and emergency team at the new RAH on our lovely ROTEM sigma device. The ROTEM sigma is located in a dedicated POC area in ED Resuscitation Bays in Australia. True POC targeted bleeding management #timetotreat. Many thanks to Carla and Liam for the support. Looking forward to working with you.
How it works in action at the @ Gold Coast University Hospital with Dr James Winearls from Transfusion Education . This popular presentation is now available as a recording. This session outlines the GCUH targeted coagulation management strategy and its implementation using case study examples. The rationale, the evidence and the technology is highlighted.
Presenter: Dr James Winearls, Consultant Intensivist, Gold Coast University Hospital.
Fibrinogen is a key predictor of whether the patient will go on to have a PPH Dr Erin Chamberlin & Dr Surbhi Malhotra Director of Anaesthetics & Perioperative Medicine
A great talk by Mr Ross Davenport, consultant Trauma and Vascular surgeon at the Royal London Hospital and Senior Investigator at the Centre for Trauma Sciences, discusses the pathophysiology of coagulopathy following trauma/ shock induced major haemorrhage. Talk ranges over current state of knowledge about causes, changes in treatments over time and evidence base for their effectiveness. https://vimeo.com/221457033

Rotational thromboelastometry significantly optimizes transfusion practices for damage control resuscitation in combat casualties.
Our hypothesis was that incorporating ROTEM measurements into DCR methods at the US Role 3 hospital at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan would change the standard transfusion ratios of 1:1:1:1 to a product mix tailored specifically for the combat causality. The introduction of ROTEM significantly improved adherence to DCR practices. The transfusion differences suggest that aggressive DCR without thromboelastometry data may result in reduced hemostatic support
