Abstract:

This special report describes the broader implications of prehospital fluid resuscitation in the context of what is the first reported case of point-of-injury use of reconstituted, lyophilized single-donor freeze dried plasma FDP as a resuscitative fluid. The Israeli Defense Force Medical Corps IDF-MC has deployed FDP as another step in the evolution of casualty care to bring damage-control resuscitation closer to the point of injury as part of the multidisciplinary efforts to improve trauma victims outcome.
