Chilled Platelet Study


The purpose of this research study is to compare the transfusion of cold-stored (refrigerated) platelets to standard room temperature stored platelets. The goal of the trial is to determine whether platelets stored cold are similar or better at stopping bleeding compared to platelets stored at room temperature and, if so, to determine the maximum duration of cold storage that maintains a similar effect on bleeding
