Erythrocyte Transfusion Based on the Measurement of Central Venous Oxygen Saturation in Postoperative Cardiac Surgery: a Bicentric, Prospective Randomized Study

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...

The Long-term Clinical Outcomes and Patterns of Transfusion in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

A nationwide retrospective cohort study. To investigate the long-term patterns of transfusion and clinical outcomes of patients undergoing PCI.

Transfusion in Sickle Cell Disease: Risk Factors for Alloimmunization

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...

Survival After Blood Transfusion in the French Administrative Regions of Burgundy and Franche-Comté

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 ...

Effects of vasodilating medications on cerebral haemodynamics in health and disease: systematic review and meta-analysis.

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...

Red blood cell alloimmunisation in transfusion-dependent thalassaemia: a systematic review.

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...

Blood Substitutes and Oxygen Therapeutics: A Review.

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...

Transfusion Camp: a prospective evaluation of a transfusion education program for multispecialty postgraduate trainees.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
