Skill
FM/BS-193.V1.00 - Know when to administer blood
Skill

Understands that patients who have lost a large and fatal amount of blood should urgently be prioritised for blood transfusions. After those patients come those who have lost a lot of blood, who may be conscious but risk being unconscious for longer when they are wounded next. 

Appreciates that soldiers who have lost some blood should not be prioritised for blood transfusions except when supply is greater than demand.
