NJ paramedics to administer TXA to trauma patients

MONOC is first EMS agency in state to administer TXA to patients with confirmed or suspected severe hemorrhage

WALL, N.J. — MONOC paramedics are the first in N.J. to carry Tranexamic Acid (TXA) on their mobile intensive care ambulance. TXA is administered to severely injured trauma patients who have or are at risk for severe hemorrhage. 

Studies have shown a decrease in mortality when TXA is used within three hours of injury and even more when given within one hour. TXA works by allowing the body to better maintain clots to control bleeding.

"TXA has been proven to save lives, be safe to administer and is rapidly becoming the standard of care in prehospital medicine," said Vince Robbins, MONOC’s President and CEO.

"MONOC continues to be proactive by updating our medical treatment protocols based on evidence based research and medicine."
