The purpose of this study is to determine how red blood cell transfusions, particularly the length of storage time of units of packed red blood cells, affects the cardiovascular function i...
Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is one of the top five causes of maternal mortality in developed and developing countries. The most important treatment of PPH is red blood cell (RBC) transfus...
This is a single-center, randomized, partially blinded study to determine whether 42-day old red blood cells (RBCs) deliver oxygen as effectively as 7-day old RBCs and also to determine wh...
The SAHaRA trial will clarify the role of treating anemia with Red Blood Cell (RBC) transfusion in unique and vulnerable patient population, and determine whether that impacts on functiona...
Blood transfusion is related to worse outcomes and the triggers for red blood cells transfusion are not well defined in cardiac surgery. Retrospective studies in cardiac surgery do not sho...
Novel feline RBC antigens might contribute to decreased efficacy of RBC transfusion and increased incidence of acute transfusion reactions (ATR).
Background/aim: Blood transfusion is associated with immunosuppression, referred to as transfusion-related immunomodulation (TRIM). In this study, for the first time, changes in the concentration of T...
Little is known about the current practice of the perioperative transfusion of red blood cells (RBCs) in pediatric patients. This study was performed to evaluate the practice of RBC transfusion in Ger...
Prevention of red blood cell (RBC) alloimmunization in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) focuses on phenotypic RBC matching. We assessed alloimmunization among transfused patients with SCD after...
Current guidelines recommend restrictive criteria for red blood-cell transfusion in most clinical settings. However, patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery may require distinct transfusion criteria s...
The area of hematology that is concerned with the transfusion of blood and blood components, and in prevention and treatment of adverse effects from BLOOD TRANSFUSION errors.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
Complications of BLOOD TRANSFUSION.
Repetitive withdrawal of small amounts of blood and replacement with donor blood until a large proportion of the blood volume has been exchanged. Used in treatment of fetal erythroblastosis, hepatic coma, sickle cell anemia, disseminated intravascular coagulation, septicemia, burns, thrombotic thrombopenic purpura, and fulminant malaria.
In utero transfusion of BLOOD into the FETUS for the treatment of FETAL DISEASES, such as fetal erythroblastosis (ERYTHROBLASTOSIS, FETAL).
