Case description

Massive transfusions by nature lead to hemodilution, acidosis, hypothermia and ultimately coagulopathy. To minimize these complications it is recommended to replace plasma constituents and platelets with packed red blood cell infusions. A protocol with a replacement ratio of 5 PRBC, 5 FFP and 2 units of platelets minimizes bleeding, hemodilution and persistent thrombocytopenia.
