Answer

Rapid transport to definitive care is the mainstay of prehospital care. Prehospital care providers should do the following:

  • Apply aggressive hemostatic techniques

  • Assist patients capable of self-administered factor therapy

  • Gather focused historical data if the patient is unable to communicate
