EAST October 2016 Literature Review - When is it Safe to Give TBI Patients DVT Chemoprophylaxis? - Podcast #70
Drs. James Byrne and Amy Makley join moderator Dr. Dave Morris to discuss a very compelling recent paper that looked at the safety of early DVT chemoprophylaxis (within 72 hours of injury) to late (> 72 hrs after injury). Dr.s Byrne and Makley also discuss the protocols they use in their institutions for this difficult clinical problem and the relative lack of guidelines available to help guide trauma clinicians.
