Abstract :

The most common type of shock in trauma is hemorrhagic shock. Treatment entails two arms: source control as well as resuscitation. Blood transfusion is a corner stone in resuscitation and inspite of the fact that it is routine process since the evolution of modern medicine; but we are still trying to optimize it. Another important aspect in blood transfusion is the concept of ├ó┬?┬?Balanced resuscitation├ó┬?┬? which needs to be more clarified to those working on patient resuscitation. Fresh versus old PRBCs transfusion: A debate between the theory and practice. While the theory might support the use of fresh transfusion; the studies failed to prove any difference in the outcome. Due to shortage in blood supply all over the world; there has been an increasing international demand for the blood substitutes; which might be showing a promising future; how true can this be?
