Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if burn injured patients who receive blood transfusions in the operating room have better outcomes when given transfusions at a set ratio (1:1)of PRBC to FFP. Traditionally, patients that need blood transfusions during surgery are given mostly packed red blood cells (PRBC) and some fresh frozen plasma (FFP). This is usually about 1:4 ratio of FFP to PRBC. In this study, we will compare this traditional approach (1:4) to a 1:1 ratio of FFP to PRBC during the operative period. The hypothesis of the study is that the use of FFP/PRBC ratio of 1:1, compared to a ratio of 1:4 will result in a(n) 1. decrease in the amount of blood transfused in the operating room 2. decrease in the amount of blood transfused during hospitalization 3. improvement in coagulation parameters (PT/PTT, INR, antithrombin III, Protein C and Fibrinogen in the operative period (from operation start to 12 hours post operatively) and at 24 hours postoperatively 4. decrease the hospital length of stay, lung dysfunction, infections, and mortality


Clinical Trial Description

The hypothesis of the study is that the use of a fresh frozen plasma/packed red blood cells (FFP/PRBC) ratio of 1:1, compared to a ratio of 1:4 during operative excision of >20% TBSA will: result in a decrease in the amount of blood transfused in the operating room, a decrease in the amount of blood transfused during hospitalization, an improvement in coagulation parameters (PT/PTT, INR) in the operative period (from operation start to 12 hours postoperatively) and at 24 hours postoperatively, and a decrease in hospital length of stay, lung dysfunction, number of infections, and mortality. The primary objective of the study is to determine if aggressive correction of intraoperative coagulopathy during burn excision and grafting results in improved outcomes. ;
