From: FIBTEM provides early prediction of massive transfusion in trauma

  non-MT group
(<10 RBC units/24 hours)
n = 245
MT group
(>10 RBC units/24 hours)
n = 78
P-value
RBC (U) 2 (0 to 5) 15 (12 to 17) <0.0001
Fibrinogen concentrate (g) 0 (0 to 4) 10 (7 to 14) <0.0001
PCC (U) 0 (0 to 0) 2,400 (1,200 to 4,275) <0.0001
Platelet concentrate (U) 0 (0 to 0) 0 (0 to 2) <0.0001
  1. MT, massive transfusion; n, number of patients; non-MT, non-massive transfusion; PCC, prothrombin complex concentrate; RBC, red blood cell concentrate; U, units.
  2. Data are presented as median and interquartile range. Groups were compared using the Mann-Whitney U-test.
