FACT*R

We are back to Inova Loudoun to discuss the innovative FACT*R program which brings blood directly to entrapped trauma patients.  Dr. John Morgan, Operational Medical Director for Loudoun County Combined Fire & Rescue System and Stephanie Boese, RN, MSN, CCRN, TCRN, Trauma Program Manager for Inova Loudoun Hospital discuss the call that prompted the creation of the Field Available Component Transfusion Response and how the program is changing the way ground EMS agencies respond to the most critical traumas.
