        The European Guideline on Management of Major Bleeding and Coagulopathy Following Trauma: 4E

        The European Guideline on Management of Major Bleeding and Coagulopathy Following Trauma: Fourth Edition

        Rossaint et al. Critical Care (2016) 20:100
        DOI 10.1186/s13054-016-1265-x

        Major Bleeding
        • FAST, CT 找出血
        • Damage control surgery if shock or coagulopathy
        • Damage control resuscitation 直到找到出血來源並控制
        • Restricted volume replacement: target SBP: 80-90 mmHg; severe TBI (GCS ≤8): MAP ≥80 mmHg
        • Tranexamic acid (TXA) as early as possible (< 3hr): loading dose TXA 1 g over 10 min, followed by TXA 1 g over 8 h
        • Restrictive RBC transfusion: target Hb 7–9 g/dl
        • FFP-RBC ratio >1:2
        • Fibrinogen maintain at 1.5–2 g/l
        • FFP administered to maintain PT and APTT ≤ 1.5 times the normal control
        • Platelet count >100K
        • PCC administered in patients pre-treated with warfarin or direct-acting oral coagulants
        • Off-label use of rFVIIa only if major bleeding and traumatic coagulopathy persist despite standard attempts to control bleeding and best practice use of conventional hemostatic measures.

        • 復甦目標 MAP > 65 mmHg, lactate 降至正常
        • EGDT, CVP, ScvO2 不再被建議用來評估復甦成效!改以非侵入性動態指標監測
        • 不建議使用 hydroxyethyl starches 作為急救輸液
        利用 procalcitonin 輔助決定是否停用抗生素

        急診 VBG 可否取代 ABG?

        Can VBG analysis replace ABG analysis in emergency care?

        Blood Gas Analysis 臨床主要用來評估病患的 Respiratory or Metabolic conditions:
        VBG 的 PvO2 無臨床價值。除此之外,PvCO2, venous pH & HCO3 可用來評估 ventilation and/or acid-base status;SvO2 可用在 severe sepsis or septic shock (EGDT) 治療指引。

        VBG 轉換 ABG 校正:

        0.03 to 0.05
        0.02 to 0.04
        4 to 5 mmHg
        3 to 8 mmHg
        1 to 2 meq/L

        CASE 1:

        Pulse 120, BP 100, RR 30. PE 無明顯異常
        Bedside glucose show ‘Hi’
        VBG: pH 7.26, pCO2 16, HCO3 7.1, K 3.8, BE −14, lactate 7.2
        pH↓, pCO2↓, HCO3 ↓ →metabolic acidosis
        加上 glucose ‘Hi’ 可診斷 DKA

        CASE 2:

        74歲男性,COPD病史。「感冒」後 呼吸急促,急診就醫。
        Pulse 125, BP 140, RR 35, SpO2 86% on air
        Chest examination: generally reduced breath sounds with scattered rhonchi
        VBG: pH 7.16, pCO2 82.6, HCO3 28.8

        pH↓, pCO2↑, HCO3 near normal
        診斷:COPD with acute hypercarbia and respiratory failure
        治療:ventilatory support with non-invasive ventilation.


        Symptoms/Signs are the same
        Pulse 110, BP 140, RR 30 with SpO2 86% on air
        VBG: pH 7.45, pCO2 42 and HCO3 28.7 

        VBG pCO2< 45 mmHg 可排除臨床有意義的 hypercarbia
        Sensitivity 100% (95% CI 97% to 100%) & NPV 100% (97% to 100%)

        此病患沒有acute respiratory failure 也沒有 significantly hypercarbia

        VBG 的臨床侷限

        血壓不穩或休克病患,仍以 ABG優先
        若 VBG data 無法解釋臨床症狀,抽 ABG 確認


        • VBG 的 PvCO2, pH & HCO3 與 ABG 差異不大,可用來評估 ventilation 和 acid-base status
        • VBG pCO2< 45 mmHg 可排除臨床有意義的 hypercarbia
        • VBG的 PvO2 無臨床價值,但可用 pulse oximerty 來評估 oxygenation (O2 saturation)
        • venous 與 artery 的 CO-Hb 差異 < ±2%,可相互取代
        • 大部分的臨床情況下,可以根據 VBG 決定病患的診斷與處置。除非病患血壓不穩/休克,或 VBG data 無法解釋臨床症狀,需再抽 ABG 確認
