Yeah I really did not care about the "ethical dilemma" but it was the best article that I could find talking about the TXA trial. I'm going to ask around and see if it is going to be county wide or just Seattle.
I guess I can see why a layperson would be nervous about "experimental" therapies being performed on them as opposed to what they assume to be tried and true evidence based practice. This is darkly amusing given the lack of good evidence for some EMS interventions.
That being said , I imagine most people would not have much of an issue with this study and the article is likely trying to increase viewership with some controversy.
