The primary objective of this study is to compare the effect of giving PROCRIT (Epoetin alfa) to patients before, during and after elective major abdominal surgery (perioperatively) to tha...
In Siriraj Hospital, blood consumption in Cardiac surgery is high (units per patient) and frequent (number of patients receiving blood). The incidence of side effects are unknown, as is th...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of epoetin alfa versus placebo in reducing the transfusion requirements in anemic patients with multiple myeloma, and ...
The investigators will define procoagulant properties of packed red blood cells and investigate whether packed red blood cells from certain donor populations are prone to induce procoagula...
Massive haemorrhage is defined as the necessity of 3 or more packed red blood cells in one hour, the transfusion of 10 packed blood cells, the loss of the half of the blood volume, the los...
For patients with anemia undergoing hemodialysis, erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are typically dosed via precise algorithms. Using one such algorithm, we assessed the maintenance of hemoglob...
Anemia is one of the most prevalent complications in patients with chronic kidney disease, which is believed to be caused by the insufficient synthesis of erythropoietin by the kidney. This phase III ...
To evaluate the hemolysis biomarkers of packed red blood cells transfused by two different linear peristaltic infusion pumps at two infusion rates.
Due to the challenge of identifying need for intervention in bleeding patients, there is a growing interest in prediction modeling. Massive transfusion (MT; 10 or more packed red cells in 24 h) is t...
Packed red cells versus whole blood transfusion for severe paediatric anaemia, pregnancy-related anaemia and obstetric bleeding: an analysis of clinical practice guidelines from sub-Saharan Africa and evidence underpinning recommendations.
Blood component transfusion is increasingly promoted in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), but is resource-intensive so whole blood is often used. We examined SSA recommendations about whole blood and packed r...
This recombinant erythropoietin, a 165-amino acid glycoprotein (about 62% protein and 38% carbohydrate), regulates red blood cell production. Epoetin alfa is produced by Chinese hamster ovary cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been inserted. (USP Dictionary of USAN and International Drug Names, 1996).
A housing and health care alternative combining independence with personal care. It provides a combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care designed to meet the needs, both scheduled and unscheduled, of those who need help with activities of daily living. (www.alfa.org)
Usually densely-packed hairs on the skin of MAMMALS.
An ovoid densely packed collection of small cells of the anterior hypothalamus lying close to the midline in a shallow impression of the optic chiasm.
Fat cells with dark coloration due to the densely packed MITOCHONDRIA. They contain numerous small lipid droplets or vacuoles. Their stored lipids can be converted directly to energy as heat by the mitochondria.
