Hello all--

I'm creating a lecture on pediatric heme/bleeding emergencies, and I'm looking for guidelines or resources on massive blood transfusion in resource-limited settings. Specifically, does anyone know (or where to find) guidelines on massive transfusion when 1) point-of-care lab testing is unavailable and 2) whole blood is the primary product?

Thank you!
