ECMO Hemostatic Transfusions in Children

Research Question:
How can doctors give platelet transfusion to children in the hospital in a safe and effective way?

Basic Study Information

Hospitalized children who need help breathing often get platelet transfusions to prevent bleeding. However, these transfusions can also cause problems. This study is looking at two different ways of giving platelet transfusions to sick children to see which way is better. The study will help doctors understand how to give platelet transfusions in a way that is safe and effective. Children 0-17 years of age will be eligible if they are admitted to the intensive care unit at Strong Memorial Hospital and need extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).
