Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta
Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a procedure that involves placement of an endovascular balloon in the aorta to temporarily control non-compressible torso haemorrhage. It offers a potential solution to bridge a patient with critical torso haemorrhage to definitive haemorrhage control.
This document aims to provide:

- A NSW gap analysis assessing potential REBOA cohort
- Insights and next steps on the potential use of REBOA in NSW.
