Calcium helps blood to clot and thereby stop bleeding. Trauma patients who experience large volume blood loss often require blood transfusions and bleeding is the most common cause of death. The purpose of this study is to see if giving intravenous calcium immediately to patients who require large volume blood transfusion will decrease transfusion requirements, vasopressor use and mortality in bleeding trauma patients.
Our lead scientists for Hypocalcemia research studies include Jeffry Nahmias, MD.
