The purpose of this study is to look at red blood cell(RBC)transfusions in trauma patients and evaluate for any differences between the age of the RBCs and how they were stored. The investigators will specifically look for the following differences between study groups:
1. the transfused red blood cells' ability to delivery oxygen to the tissues
2. changes in the how the RBCs' look or act under a microscope and
3. how the subject's internal organs are working and if they develop any infections
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The aim of the CeKATU study is to describe the transfusion practices in patients undergoing major surgery in Turkey. The transfusion rates of red blood cells (RBC), fresh frozen plasma (FF...
A high proportion of patients having cardiac surgery receive red cell transfusions. Yet, the investigators do not know whether transfusions are beneficial and they may be associated with h...
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 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...
This study will determine if transfusion of platelets containing HLA antibodies (certain antibodies to white blood cells) are more likely to cause transfusion reactions than transfusion of...
After transfusion of senescent red blood cells (RBCs) a considerable fraction is rapidly cleared from the recipients' circulation. Thus, transfusion of senescent RBCs may be less effective in terms of...
Human blood is the only source of red blood cells, platelets and plasma, and includes the clotting factors. Transfusion of concentrated erythrocyte and blood products is a simple form of organ transpl...
Novel feline RBC antigens might contribute to decreased efficacy of RBC transfusion and increased incidence of acute transfusion reactions (ATR).
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...
The risks and benefits of red blood cell (RBC) transfusion in palliative care patients remain poorly understood. We reviewed the literature to summarize available information on RBC transfusion in thi...
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.
Complications of BLOOD TRANSFUSION.
In utero transfusion of BLOOD into the FETUS for the treatment of FETAL DISEASES, such as fetal erythroblastosis (ERYTHROBLASTOSIS, FETAL).
The introduction of whole blood or blood component directly into the blood stream. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Reinfusion of blood or blood products derived from the patient's own circulation. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
