Despite improved strategies in the treatment of polytraumatized patients the mortality rate of severely injured patients remains high. Thus, worldwide 5 million patients die due to trauma or trauma-related complications each year. As the majority of early trauma-related deaths are attributed to or caused by exsanguination the prevention and treatment of coagulopathy is of paramount significance. With the aim of developing guidelines and improve strategies to treat polytraumatized patients the multidisciplinary Task Force for Advanced Bleeding Care in Trauma was founded in 2005. Under consideration of new clinical studies, an updated version of the original publication from 2007 has recently been published. Based on a systematic review of published literature the recommendations were formed according to "Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation" (GRADE). This publication summarizes the main recommendations with a special emphasis on revisions and new aspects.
