Abstract

This paper briefly touches on the problem of dealing with the severely injured child requiring massive transfusion and produces a guide on the management of this based on the current Surgeon General's Operational Policy Letter. There are no known UK guidelines on massive transfusion in trauma in the paediatric population although many specialist centres have guidance for dealing with cases in theatre during elective surgery. It is hoped that these guidelines will be used by deployed military anaesthetists to aid in their management of these difficult cases, not normally seen in the U.K.
