Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

According to the World Health Organization, there are 2.5 million deaths a year related to hemorrhagic trauma, and hemorrhage from trauma remains the leading cause of preventable death. Advanced understanding of trauma-induced coagulation (TIC) creates innovative approaches to control bleeding. These innovations and evidence-based guidelines to control bleeding are presented and include hypotensive resuscitation, medications and surgical procedures to control and maintain patient hemostasis.


  • Identify management and prevention of complications in patients with TIC.
  • Integrate current evidence-based guidelines in the use of medications to support hemostasis in the trauma population.
  • Compare compressible and noncompressible hemostatic interventions to control hemorrhage in the exsanguinating patient.
