Below are a list of active studies and studies in development currently recruiting patients. If you would like your site to participate in the study, please contact the PI listed.
TITLE: Point Prevalence Study of Platelet Transfusions in Critically Ill Children (P3T)
GOAL: To describe the patterns of platelet transfusions among critically ill children, including dose, transfusion thresholds and indications; to assess the platelet count increment and changes in platelet function parameters after the platelet transfusions; and to describe the outcomes in critically ill children receiving platelet transfusions
PI: Marianne Nellis, MD Contact: email@example.com
STATUS: In development (data collection to begin Sept 2016)
TITLE: Massive Transfusion Epidemiology and Outcomes in Children
GOAL: to improve outcomes for children with severe bleeding by performing a thorough U.S. multi-center evidence-based analysis of data associated with traumatic and non-traumatic hemorrhage
PI: Philip C. Spinella, MD Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
TITLE: Point-Prevalence Study of Plasma Transfusion Exposure
HYPOTHESIS: Our primary hypothesis is that, in pediatric critical care, more than a third of plasma transfusions are given to non-bleeding patients in whom there are no planned invasive procedures.

STATUS: IN DEVELOPMENT
TITLE: Impact of a decision support rule on appropriate transfusion of red blood cells – CPOE Reducing Inappropriate Transfusions (CRIT)
HYPOTHESIS: Implementation of an automated decision-support “rule” will significantly decrease the number of unnecessary red cell transfusions.
