Resuscitation Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta. Just as exciting as it sounds.  Another great tool in the war on exsanguination in trauma. A lot of factors to consider if we are occluding the aorta. Again something I enjoyed hearing about at a recent conference-as you might imagine the Trauma Surgeon talking about it made it sound pretty straight forward.

Does your ER have a kit for this or would you be scrambling for supplies? Have you seen it used?If you have read something great about it please add it to the comments.
