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: man9026@med.cornell.edu
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: spinella_p@kids.wustl.edu
STATUS: ACTIVE


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.

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.
