Red blood cells
A unit of packed red blood cells for a pre-hospital transfusion is a real lifesaver.
Haemorrhage is one of the leading causes of death in major trauma patients. Early transfusion of packed red blood cells increases the chance of survival by increasing a patient’s likelihood of surviving to reach a hospital and allowing the hospital to start treating the patient sooner.
Gifting equipment like a unit of red blood cells for our Essex & Herts Air Ambulance crew to use on their life-saving missions is a great way to support us.
