TXA: Revisited
crash2-2011

In Episode 4 we discussed how TXA is used in the military and how is was introduced to EMS.  We also discussed the MATTERs Trial and the Crash 2 Study.

For this episode Dr. Evans joined us at MedFlight for a company inservice.  He spoke about the pharmacology of TXA as well as evidence based practice.

If you have never heard of TXA, it may be helpful to go back and listen to MedFlight Radio Episode 4 and then listen to this episode.

Here is another great article about the use of TXA in EMS.

As always thank you for listening and we hope to see many of you at AMTC.
