Postoperative erythrocytes transfusion is associated with morbidity and excess mortality, which should lead to ask the indication for RBC transfusions only on metabolic needs. Currently, t...
A nationwide retrospective cohort study. To investigate the long-term patterns of transfusion and clinical outcomes of patients undergoing PCI.
Sickle cell patients have a high prevalence of alloimmunization. This high rate of alloimmunization can be partially explained by the existence of an antigenic difference between the predo...
Red blood cell transfusion (RBC) is the main symptomatic treatment for severe anemia. RBC transfusion has proven its efficacy regarding mortality and morbidity, but it is not without side ...
Retrospective cohort study of Korean National Healthcare Insurance Database. To investigate clinical outcomes of bare metal stents versus drug eluting stents in patients who underwent peri...
Vasodilating antihypertensives prevent stroke and potentially cerebral small vessel disease but their effects on cerebrovascular haemodynamics beyond blood pressure lowering are unclear.
The relationship between colloid transfusion during surgical decompression hemicraniectomy period and post-operative pneumonia or long-term outcome after space-occupying cerebral infarction: A retrospective study.
The colloid transfusion during surgical decompressive hemicraniectomy (DHC) after space-occupying cerebral infarction induced by middle cerebral artery (MCA), is controversial. A multicenter retrospec...
Chronic red blood cell transfusion is the first-line treatment for severe forms of thalassaemia. This therapy is, however, hampered by a number of adverse effects, including red blood cell alloimmunis...
Despite the exhaustive search for an acceptable substitute to erythrocyte transfusion, neither chemical-based products such as perfluorocarbons nor hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers have succeeded in p...
The optimal method of providing transfusion medicine (TM) education has not been determined. Transfusion Camp was established in 2012 at the University of Toronto as a centrally delivered TM education...
The transfer of erythrocytes from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
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.
A rare but serious transfusion-related reaction in which fluid builds up in the lungs unrelated to excessively high infusion rate and/or volume (TRANSFUSION-ASSOCIATED CIRCULATORY OVERLOAD). Signs of Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury include pulmonary secretions; hypotension; fever; DYSPNEA; TACHYPNEA; TACHYCARDIA; and CYANOSIS.
The formation of clumps of RED BLOOD CELLS under low or non-flow conditions, resulting from the attraction forces between the red blood cells. The cells adhere to each other in rouleaux aggregates. Slight mechanical force, such as occurs in the circulation, is enough to disperse these aggregates. Stronger or weaker than normal aggregation may result from a variety of effects in the ERYTHROCYTE MEMBRANE or in BLOOD PLASMA. The degree of aggregation is affected by ERYTHROCYTE DEFORMABILITY, erythrocyte membrane sialylation, masking of negative surface charge by plasma proteins, etc. BLOOD VISCOSITY and the ERYTHROCYTE SEDIMENTATION RATE are affected by the amount of erythrocyte aggregation and are parameters used to measure the aggregation.
The senescence of RED BLOOD CELLS. Lacking the organelles that make protein synthesis possible, the mature erythrocyte is incapable of self-repair, reproduction, and carrying out certain functions performed by other cells. This limits the average life span of an erythrocyte to 120 days.
