PDF | 5 minutes read | Blood Banking practices | ResearchGate, the professional network for scientists. that ensures blood provision and promotes transfusion medicine in such a way alternatives for allogeneic blood transfusions during elective. As the field of Transfusion Medicine is rapidly changing with new evidence to The current Fourth Edition appears as two significant concepts are emerging in.

The samples chosen for the study were from the RDPs on the 5th day of storage after their preparation. There was a statistically significant difference between mean pH with RDP units having swirling Grade 2 and 3 and platelet counts with RDP units having swirling Grade 1 and 2.

Conclusion: Bacterial contamination though poses a significant risk is a very rare event in a meticulously prepared and stored PCs. Surrogate markers though useful in resource-constrained settings does not correlate optimally with the quality indicators.


Spectrum of alloimmunization among multitransfused beta-thalassemia major patients p. The current study assessed the frequency and specificity of erythrocytes alloimmunization and also the variables affecting the extent of alloimmunization in repeatedly transfused thalassemia patients.

Of the thalassemia major patients, alloantibodies were screened and identified by 3-red cell antigen panel and afterward by an extended cell antigen panel. The data analysis was done through SPSS version Chi-square test was employed. Results: Alloantibodies were detected in 77 Anti-D Anti-K antibody was observed in 11 Anti-C 2.

Similarly, Cw 1. Alloantibodies were common in males, splenectomized patients, in those who initiated their transfusions before 2 years of age, in patients receiving nonleukoreduced blood and in B and O blood group patients. Conclusion: The proper management and prudence are needed for thalassemia patients due to hemolytic nature of these alloantibodies. New techniques should be introduced to reduce the incidence of red blood cell alloimmunization. Slump of trends in transfusion-transmissible infectious diseases: Is syphils alarming in Pakistan?

Setting and Design: This cross-sectional retrospective study was conducted on donor community attending Transfusion Medicine Department, Punjab Institute of Cardiology, Lahore, Pakistan from January 1, , to December 31, Subject and Methods: A total of 79, blood donors were processed for HbsAg anti-HCV, anti-human immunodeficiency virus HIV , syphilis, and malaria detection by rapid immune chromatographic technique.

Research Opportunities in Transfusion Medicine

Overall Co-infection was 0. Year-wise seroprevalence of HCV was 2.

Conclusion: Raising trends for syphilis among blood donors underscore the concern about growing infection of this disease in the community as these blood donors represent the highly selective community. The zero prevalence of HIV in Pakistani population supports the growing awareness of this life-threatening disease.

HBV and HCV infections still continue to be a menace to the society because, in spite of decreasing trend, burden of the disease is still high in general community. Revisit of efficiency of blood usage — Need for continuous audit p. This study, in a South Indian tertiary care hospital, audits blood utilization efficiency and revisits it after implementing corrective measures for deficiencies identified by the first audit highlighting the importance of continuous surveillance and proper measures in efficient blood utilization.

After initiating appropriate measures, reaudit over 1 month assessed effect on blood usage.

The total duration was from December to November Request forms packed red blood cells provided patient demographics, number of units requested, and indication. Blood bank records provided number of units crossmatched and issued against each request. Results: Initial audit: total requests- , C:T ratio All departments met minimum TI 0. Conclusion: Initial audit showed inefficient blood utilization.

Appropriate steps taken to improve this included the establishment of standard protocols. Reaudit showed efficient blood utilization in medical departments and the need for further revision in practices for surgical departments.

Hence, continuous monitoring is vital in ensuring effective blood usage.

Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis

To evaluate hemoglobin thresholds of elective surgical patients and blood typing policy for reducing the erythrocyte transfusion in a hospital setting p. The risk-based scoring systems available are maximum allowable surgical blood loss and maximum surgical blood ordering schedule employ retrospective data evaluation or patient-specific variables, respectively.

The aim of the present study was to evaluate a single institutional data for analyzing red blood cell RBC requirement among various surgical diagnoses.

The study also evaluated RBC threshold for blood transfusions and efficacy of blood typing policy toward reducing unnecessary transfusions in an institution. Study Design and Methods: This study is a retrospective data evaluation from a single institution of blood transfusion patterns among elective surgical patients. The overall crossmatch-to-transfusion ratio was 1. The effective Blood usage was Blood typing policy showed a statistically significant improvement in the blood transfusion of crossmatched units in the hospital.

A per-unit reduction of blood cost in patients was also observed. Conclusions: The blood transfusion across the surgical categories showed similar Hb thresholds before transfusion.

Blood typing policy improved EBU and reduced unnecessary crossmatches and transfusion costs among the patients. Patients' involvement and the improvement of patient blood management p. To fulfill the goal of appropriate use of blood and blood components, all the shareholders involved in patient treatment, particularly patients themselves should play an effective role. Materials and Methods: The present research aims to evaluate the status of patients' rights, patient awareness-raising efforts, and the consequent informed consent for transfusion order purposes in hospitals.

To this end, the interview was conducted on patients under surgery. Transfusion medicine has become a broad, multidisciplinary field that has evolved beyond issues related to blood procurement and storage.

Scope of the Problem The field of transfusion medicine began years ago, in , with the discovery by Landsteiner 1 of the ABO blood group system. This discovery demonstrated that plasma proteins have defined specificities.

These plasma proteins, later termed antibodies, recognize epitopes on red blood cells. These discoveries constituted a starting point for blood banking—collection and storage of blood—and for immunohematology, the serological investigation of blood group antigens Figure 1. During the past 3 to 4 decades, significant advances have been achieved in improving the blood supply with respect to availability, safety, and fractionation into components, such as red blood cells, platelet concentrates, and plasma proteins.

Donors currently donate approximately 12 million units of blood annually in the United States. A safe and adequate blood supply is a fundamental necessity to support state-of-the-art medical and surgical therapies. However, resources are now needed to translate advances in the biology of hematopoietic cells into newer cellular therapies and to investigate the unique immunological effects that result from transfusion of blood cells.

This article discusses current status and progress in several aspects of transfusion medicine, including adequacy and safety of the blood supply, appropriate use of transfusion therapy, development of novel cellular therapies, and manipulation and prevention of immune responses. Major Advances Advances in transfusion medicine that have occurred during the past 25 years include reduction in risk of virally transmitted disease, pharmaceutical production of recombinant clotting factors, isolation and storage of stem and progenitor cell populations for transplantation, and genetic characterization of blood group antigens.

Reduction in transfusion-transmitted viral disease was achieved by a conversion from paid to volunteer donors, by improvement in donor screening, and by improvement of assays that detect viruses in donor blood.

Advances have also been made in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell transplantation for both hematologic and nonhematologic malignancies. The realization that stem and progenitor cells circulate in peripheral blood and that these cells can be mobilized from bone marrow using cytokines has led to outpatient cytapheresis procedures.

Historically, blood group antigens were defined only by serological means, and their expression was thought to be limited to red blood cells. During the past 2 decades, establishment of the molecular basis for the majority of these blood group antigens has led to the realization that many of these antigens are expressed on other tissue cells. In addition, the biological functions of some of these antigens have been defined eg, as receptors for pathogens or as ion transporters in the cell membrane 5.

It is now possible to develop blood group antigen testing by genetic approaches. As a result, alloimmunization would be less likely. Current Scientific Foundation The indications for transfusion of blood products continue to evolve.

The hemoglobin concentration alone is an inadequate indication for red blood cell transfusion but improved clinical guidelines have not yet been defined.Paglia et al. While fructose is known to be taken up through the GLUT5 transporter [ 64 ], the exact transport mechanism for mannose uptake has yet to be clearly elucidated. Chi-square test was employed.

Through statistical analysis of existing data sets, eight extracellular metabolites adenine, hypoxanthine, glucose, lactate, malate, nicotinamide, 5-oxoproline, and xanthine were identified that can differentiate between the three metabolic states.

He is a former editor of the journal Transfusion and has published more than articles in the medical literature involving a wide range of issues in transfusion medicine and blood banking. Moreover, the immune consequences of transfusion therapy are better appreciated and opportunities are at hand to prevent or blunt unwanted immune responses, such as platelet refractoriness and graft-vs-host disease. An additional set of experiments 5 yielded a robust set of storage-age biomarkers 1 Does the storage media affect the metabolic decay pattern?

Conclusion: The proper management and prudence are needed for thalassemia patients due to hemolytic nature of these alloantibodies.
