EMS on AIR Podcast S2E35 – “TXA, Traumatic Bleeding and EMS” Recorded May 3, 2021

Download
Duration: 28:32
Description: During this video, we discuss tranexamic acid (TXA), which is a medication that helps prevent the body from prematurely breaking down clots. It doesn’t make new clots. It protects existing clots as they are formed. TXA has shown to be an effective preoperative drug that minimizes the need for large amounts of whole blood during general surgery procedures. TXA is now being used by EMS to treat severely injured trauma patients in the field who have or are at risk for severe hemorrhage. Specifically, starting June 2021, TXA will be added to the Southeast Michigan EMS Medication Box.

By the conclusion of this podcast CE course, the student will be able to: Describe the pharmacokinetics of tranexamic acid (TXA). List the indications for use and corresponding contra-indications of TXA. Recall the dose and route/method of delivery for TXA as stated in the protocol. List the adverse reactions and side effects of TXA.
