Platelet inhibition as identified by VerifyNow has the potential as a screening tool to identify patients who are aspirin hyper-responsive or aspirin resistant
A prospective evaluation of #ROTEM to identify acute traumatic coagulopathy and predict massive transfusion in military trauma patients in Afghanistan https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/trf.15176
This webinar will focus on the implementation of bleeding management, a key component of a Patient Blood Management (PBM) program. Bronwyn Pearse will review how one institution implemented a Bleeding Management program, including both successes and challenges.
She will provide an overview of the role of evidence-based implementation and the benefits of planned change models. She will also offer strategies for implementing a Bleeding Management program in your institution as a part of a PBM program, including the use of ROTEM testing.

A trial with the potential to save Australians dying from trauma-related bleeding! We posted a short clip a few weeks ago. This is a 10 minute overview of the trial and the data to date from the #FEISTY team. An EMF-funded trial thanks to Queensland Health & Steven Miles.

Perioperative Hemostatic Management of Cardiohepatic Transplant with Rotational Thromboelastometry (ROTEM)
The haemostatic management of the cardiohepatic transplant becomes a challenge considering not only the coagulopathy of the end stage liver disease (ESLD) but also the alteration of the extracorporeal circulation (ECC). Standard laboratory tests (SLTs) do not allow the correct diagnosis presenting slow turnaround times and increasing the number of allogeneic transfusions. Until now, algorithms for haemostatic management of multiorgan transplants have not been published.
We propose a five step algorithm (pre ECC, intra ECC, post protamine/ basal hepatic, anhepatic and reperfusion) guided by ROTEM, based on factor concentrates therapy.
Role of Conjunct Thromboelastometry and Aggregometry for Identification of Clotting Abnormalities and Early Severity Stratification in the Emergency Department in Patients with Sepsis
This study represents the first attempt of a joined application of POC coagulation tests in patients with suspected sepsis and correlated clinical conditions. This is furthermore the first study where thromboelastometry and impedance aggregometry were tested in patients during early presentation to the ED.
This work highlights the potential role of readily available coagulation POC tests in promptly identifying peculiar alterations in patients with sepsis and septic shock in the ED, supporting treatment celerity and appropriateness.
Getting the antivenom dose right for brown snake bites is still guess work, but that could change due to new EMF-funded research by Townsville emergency clinicians and researchers.

Research led by Townsville Hospital and Health Service emergency doctor #Adam Holyoak in collaboration with James Cook University researchers. EMF's Queensland Research Program is funded by Queensland Health.
Date: 24 February 2018
Venue: Education Centre, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital
A great program with international and local experts https://metronorth.health.qld.gov.au/events/blood-management-symposium
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.
