In this episode we cover a paper that you have to know about!

The use of tranexamic acid(or TXA) has become widespread in the case of major trauma and post partum haemorrhage. This time we discuss a recent paper that asks us if giving it within 3 hours is enough, or whether we need to be even more specific regarding its urgency of administration in order to save lives from bleeding.

There is a superb podcast over at our buddies site PHEMCAST which covers an interview with one of the authors and we'd highly recommend listening to that!

Enjoy!

Simon & Rob
