Brief description About 2500 Australians die annually from severe injuries. Bleeding is exacerbated by early-onset clotting defects, which are associated with high mortality. The antifibrinolytic agent tranexamic acid has been shown to reduce mortality due to bleeding when given in hospital in less developed trauma systems, but its usefulness as a pre-emptive strike at the scene of injury in developed systems is unknown. Building on our prehospital clinical trials expertise, we will conduct a trial to assess its effect on 6-month death and disability.
