In this month’s “Virtual Lecture,” James Stubbs, M.D., will discuss the concept of remote damage control resuscitation (RDCR) and the use of new “old” blood components that could potentially increase effectiveness of RDCR, including low-titer cold-stored group O whole blood. He will also discuss the use of cold-stored apheresis platelets and how to transition both products to RDCR.
- Discuss the remote damage control resuscitation (RDCR) concept in prehospital environments.
