US Department of Defense awards funding for study to evaluate the use of INTERCEPT plasma in traumatic burn resuscitation
Burn injuries remain a significant health burden in civilian, first responder, and military settings. Despite major advances in care over the past 25 years, morbidity and mortality remain high, possibly exacerbated by current burn resuscitation strategies that employ large-volume crystalloid administration. Fluid overload early after burn injury constitutes a major risk factor for development of pneumonia, acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS), multiorgan failure, and death. The major objective of this study is to evaluate INTERCEPT plasma as a safe and effective resuscitation fluid in patients with major burns.
