PI Fabio Taccone updates us on the progress of one of the newest novel studies from the ESICM Trials Group: The TRAIN Study.

TRAIN (TRansfusion strategies in Acute brain INjured patients) is a prospective multicentre randomised interventional study which will assess the impact of two different strategies to administer blood transfusions in a large cohort of critically ill patients with a primary brain injury. The results of this trial may help to better manage blood products and transfusion thresholds in this specific patient population and will provide additional data in some sub-groups of patients at high-risk of brain ischaemia, such as those with an intracranial hypertension or developing cerebral vasospasm.
