The Pediatric Trauma Hemorrhagic Shock Treatment Guideline Consensus Conference is a conference designed to produce consensus statements on best practices and research priorities that include optimal methods of dissemination and implementation of high-quality pediatric data to allow for the efficient change of clinical practice when appropriate.

A panel of national and international experts representing trauma surgery, transfusion medicine, hematology, anesthesia, critical care, and emergency medicine will share their expertise and lead discussions to inform the consensus committee. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Epidemiology and outcomes

  • Laboratory identification of hemorrhagic shock
  • Transfusion strategies for both prehospital and in-hospital
  • Consequences of crystalloid and colloid resuscitation
