Massive Transfusion Protocol (MTP) in the Operating Room
As the number of surgeries City of Hope performs has increased, so has our need for resources needed for these patients. This includes blood products. While our blood bank is well known for using blood products efficiently, dispensing them in large quantities, is often a slow process. Here we seek to improve this by expanding knowledge on the advantages of MTPs and how to adopt this life-saving protocol into our policies and procedures at City of Hope.
Massive transfusion protocols (MTP) are a staple of treatment for the patient bleeding acutely. The blood bank at City of Hope does not currently have an massive transfusion protocol in place. As City of Hope has expanded its services, the department of anesthesiology has been caring for in increased number acutely ill and bleeding patients that often require large volumes of blood products. Our blood bank is often unable to meet our needs in a timely manner with the current methods. Predefined MTPs are associated with improved coagulation profiles as well as a decrease in organ failure . Through this activity, we are seeking to improve knowledge for anesthesiologists and blood bank colleagues, as well as start the process for establishing these protocols.
Anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurses and blood bank staff.
- Examine what a massive transfusion protocol is.
- Identify patients that are candidates for a massive transfusion protocol.
- Assess potential side effects and adverse reactions when a massive transfusion is given.
- Outline strategies to mitigate potential adverse reactions when massive transfusions are needed.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
