Anyone have a protocol regarding plasma administration and if so, would you be willing to share it with me? My program is looking to start carrying it along with the whole blood we carry. Thanks.

Refactory hypotension, we do a 1:1,  (we limit fluids once blood products are needed)

We carry PRBC and Liquid plasma

- 1 unit of PRBC

- 1 unit of liquid plasma

 

Also, evaluate for TXA administration if warranted. 

Then, obtain INR (administer Vitamin K, and Kcentra as needed)
