Two 2021 studies found that balanced ratios were independently associated with improved survival:
- Improved survival when RBC/PLT or RBC/FFP ratio <1.5:1: Matthay ZJ, Hellmann ZJ, Callcut RA, et al. “Outcomes after ultramassive transfusion in the modern era: An Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma multicenter study. J Trauma Acute Care Surgery. 2021: 91:24-33.
- Improved 24-hr and 30-day survival rates with “Time in Target” Hynes AM, et al. Staying on Target: Maintaining a balanced resuscitation during damage control resuscitation improves survival. J Trauma Acute Care Surgery. 2021.
