Massive Hemorrhage Protocol (MHP)

Transfusion Medicine, Alberta Precision Laboratories

Massive Hemorrhage Protocols (MHPs) and provide mechanisms for rapid provision of blood components and products for the resuscitation of exsanguinating patients. Communication and consultation with a transfusion medicine physician are key components of an MHP.

Not all MHPs utilize a series of boxes. MHPs are tailored to the blood products and clinical protocols available at the site, and the clinical situation of the patient.

Note: The previous terminology of Massive Transfusion Protocol (MTP) is being provincially standardized to MHP.
