Whole Blood saves lives! The Association of Texas EMS Professionals is encouraging all Texas EMS providers to #FillTheBlood of their local blood centers before the end of August.
In 2019, North Texas Regional EMS (NTREMS) became the first Texas EMS system to add whole blood to every ambulance.
The blood is stored in a portable BloodBoxx™ EMS thermal protection container and all NTREMS Paramedics are trained in its administration. This makes whole blood an immediate treatment option once its need is recognized.
The NTREMS model reveals that modern technology and training exists for expanded prehospital implementation. Expansion is most constricted by the availability of whole blood.
