Prolonged Field Care Working Group Fluid Therapy Recommendations


Baker BL, Powell D, Riesberg J, Keenan S 16(1). 112 - 117 (Journal Article)

The Prolonged Field Care Working Group concurs that fresh whole blood (FWB) is the fluid of choice for patients in hemorrhagic shock, and the capability to transfuse FWB should be a basic skill set for Special Operations Forces (SOF) Medics. Prolonged field care (PFC) must also address resuscitative and maintenance fluid requirements in nonhemorrhagic conditions.
