The transfer of blood components such as erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, and plasma from a donor to a recipient or back to the donor. This process differs from the procedures undertaken in PLASMAPHERESIS and types of CYTAPHERESIS; (PLATELETPHERESIS and LEUKAPHERESIS) where, following the removal of plasma or the specific cell components, the remainder is transfused back to the donor.
The transfer of erythrocytes from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
The introduction of whole blood or blood component directly into the blood stream. (Dorland, 27th ed)
The transfer of blood platelets from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
Centers for collecting, characterizing and storing human blood.
Any procedure in which blood is withdrawn from a donor, a portion is separated and retained and the remainder is returned to the donor.
The removal of LEUKOCYTES from BLOOD to reduce BLOOD TRANSFUSION reactions and lower the chance of transmitting VIRUSES. This may be performed by FILTRATION or by CYTAPHERESIS.

Decreased lactic acidosis and anemia after transfusion of o-raffinose cross-linked and polymerized hemoglobin in severe murine malaria. (1/192)

Severe anemia is a major cause of death in falciparum malaria. Blood transfusion increases survival in humans and in animal models of this disease. Because of logistic constraints and viral contamination of the blood supply, transfusions are frequently not practical in endemic regions. Modified hemoglobin is an effective O2 carrier in hemorrhagic shock. It is free of infectious contamination, may not require refrigeration, and because of its nitric oxide scavenging and small size, may have pharmacologic benefits in malaria. The effects of transfusions of modified hemoglobin in rats with high-grade parasitemia were evaluated. Modified hemoglobin decreased lactic acidosis and corrected anemia as well as transfusions with red blood cells; these findings may correlate with improved survival and suggest a possible proerythropoietic effect. Further study of this novel therapy is warranted.  (+info)

Serious hazards of transfusion (SHOT) initiative: analysis of the first two annual reports. (2/192)

OBJECTIVE: To receive and collate reports of death or major complications of transfusion of blood or components. DESIGN: Haematologists were invited confidentially to report deaths and major complications after blood transfusion during October 1996 to September 1998. SETTING: Hospitals in United Kingdom and Ireland. SUBJECTS: Patients who died or experienced serious complications, as defined below, associated with transfusion of red cells, platelets, fresh frozen plasma, or cryoprecipitate. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Death, "wrong" blood transfused to patient, acute and delayed transfusion reactions, transfusion related acute lung injury, transfusion associated graft versus host disease, post-transfusion purpura, and infection transmitted by transfusion. Circumstances relating to these cases and relative frequency of complications. RESULTS: Over 24 months, 366 cases were reported, of which 191 (52%) were "wrong blood to patient" episodes. Analysis of these revealed multiple errors of identification, often beginning when blood was collected from the blood bank. There were 22 deaths from all causes, including three from ABO incompatibility. There were 12 infections: four bacterial (one fatal), seven viral, and one fatal case of malaria. During the second 12 months, 164/424 hospitals (39%) submitted a "nil to report" return. CONCLUSIONS: Transfusion is now extremely safe, but vigilance is needed to ensure correct identification of blood and patient. Staff education should include awareness of ABO incompatibility and bacterial contamination as causes of life threatening reactions to blood.  (+info)

Allogeneic blood stem cell and bone marrow transplantation for acute myelogenous leukemia and myelodysplasia: influence of stem cell source on outcome. (3/192)

We have compared the outcomes of 87 patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and myelodysplasia (MDS) receiving matched sibling transplants with stem cells from peripheral blood (blood cell transplant, BCT) or bone marrow (BMT). In good risk patients (AML in CR1) granulocytes recovered to 0.5 x 10(9)/l a median of 14 days after BCT compared with 19 days after BMT (P < 0.0001). For patients with poor risk disease (AML beyond CR1 and MDS) corresponding figures were 16 vs 26 days (P < 0.0001). Platelet recovery to 20 x 10(9)/l was also faster after BCT (good risk 12 vs 20 days, P < 0.0001; poor risk 17 vs 22 days, P = 0.04). Red cell transfusions were unaffected by cell source, but BCT recipients required less platelet transfusions (good risk 1 vs 5, P = 0.002; poor risk 5 vs 11, P = 0.004). Blood cell transplants resulted in more chronic GVHD (86% vs 48%, P = 0.005) and a significantly higher proportion of recipients with KPS of 80% or less (48% vs 5%, P = 0.004). Disease-free survival at 4 years was 23% for both groups of poor risk patients but outcome in good risk patients was better after BCT (93% vs 62%, P = 0.047) related mainly to less relapse. While disease-free survival may be better after BCT than BMT for AML in CR1, quality of life may be relatively impaired.  (+info)

Use of rituximab and irradiated donor-derived lymphocytes to control Epstein-Barr virus-associated lymphoproliferation in patients undergoing related haplo-identical stem cell transplantation. (4/192)

Epstein-Barr virus-associated lymphoproliferative disorder (EBV-LPD) is an uncommon but potentially fatal complication of allogeneic stem cell transplantation. We report here two patients who underwent T cell-depleted mismatched-related stem cell transplantation for hematologic malignancies and required aggressive post-transplant immunosuppression for graft-versus host disease (GVHD). Both patients subsequently developed markedly elevated EBV-DNA titers in association with monoclonal, light chain-restricted B cell populations in the blood. Although immunosuppressive medications were rapidly tapered, neither patient could receive potentially curative therapy with unmanipulated donor-derived lymphocyte infusions (DLI) because of the substantial risk of severe GVHD. Therefore, both patients received repeated courses of rituximab, an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, in combination with irradiated DLI. This therapeutic strategy resulted in normalization of the elevated EBV-DNA titers and disappearance of the monoclonal B cell populations. Our results suggest that rituximab and possibly irradiated DLI played an important role in controlling early EBV-LPD in these two patients and may be an effective alternative therapeutic strategy for patients who develop EBV-LPD post transplant and are unable to receive unmanipulated DLI.  (+info)

Hematopoietic stem cell allografts using a non-myeloablative conditioning regimen can be safely performed on an outpatient basis: report of four cases. (5/192)

Using a non-myeloablative, immunosuppressive, fludarabine-based conditioning regimen, we performed allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplants totally on an outpatient basis in four patients (two with chronic myelogenous leukemia, one with acute myelogenous leukemia and one with thalassemia major). The median granulocyte recovery time to 0.5 x 109/l was 10 days and the lowest absolute neutrophil count was 0.064 x 109/l; only one patient developed thrombocytopenia below 20 x 109/l. No patient required red blood cell transfusions and one was given a single prophylactic platelet transfusion. All patients are alive at 210-390 (median 285) days and have definite evidence of chimerism; one developed biopsy-proven GVHD on day 50, with a limited cutaneous rash. The procedure is less costly than its counterpart using myeloablative conditioning regimens and may represent another approach in the management of patients requiring an allogeneic stem cell transplant.

Epstein-Barr virus-associated lymphoproliferative disease after a cord blood transplant for Diamond-Blackfan anemia. (6/192)

A 7-year-old boy with Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA) developed lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) after a cord blood transplant (CBT). 3.1 x 107/kg mononuclear cells from an HLA one-locus mismatched CB were transplanted after conditioning with total body irradiation (8 Gy), cyclophosphamide (200 mg/kg) and antithymocyte globulin (10 mg/kg). Complete engraftment occurred on day 33 post transplant. Despite the resolution of grade II graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), he died of lymphoma on day 130 post transplant. The tumor was of donor origin, indicating clonal proliferation of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-infected B cells. This is the first report of EBV-LPD after CBT. Post-transplant LPD can be a serious EBV-associated complication of CB grafts. Bone Marrow Transplantation (2000) 25, 209-212.  (+info)

A successful cord blood transplant in a child with second accelerated phase chronic myeloid leukemia following lymphoid blast crisis. (7/192)

We describe a 5-year-old girl with Ph(+) CML who received a cord blood transplant in a second accelerated phase after a very early lymphoid blast crisis. She was induced into CR by ALL-directed chemotherapy and then maintained with IFN-alpha2b together with weekly rotational chemotherapy. Nineteen months after diagnosis, her mother gave birth to an HLA-compatible sibling, whose cord blood was cryopreserved. The patient's second acceleration occurred 22 months after the CML diagnosis. The subsequent conditioning regimen included busulfan 16 mg/kg, Ara-C 12 g/m2 and melphalan 140 mg/m2. In order to prevent GVHD, CsA alone was administered, 3 mg/kg i.v. per day for a total of 40 days. The total number of nucleated cells infused was 0.8 x 108/kg, with CD34+ cells 1.8 x 106/kg and CFU-GM 1 x 104/kg. Engraftment occurred on day +35. Respiratory distress, severe VOD and grade II acute gastrointestinal GVHD complicated the post-transplant period. No chronic GVHD occurred. The girl is alive 23 months after transplantation with complete donor chimerism; both Ph chromosome and bcr/abl RNA are negative. Bone Marrow Transplantation (2000) 25, 213-215.  (+info)

Successful treatment of relapsed CML after cord blood transplantation with donor leukocyte infusion IL-2 and IFNalpha. (8/192)

A 3-year-old girl with BCR/ABL-positive CML relapsed after related HLA-identical cord blood transplantation. She was treated with three cycles of donor lymphocyte (DLI) infusion from her 15-month-old brother. Interferon alpha was added after the second DLI, whereas a trial of IL-2 had to be discontinued because of increasing immature myeloid cells in the blood smear. No signs of GVHD were observed, but she developed myelosuppression and needed one platelet and one red blood cell transfusion. She achieved a molecular remission after 6 months with transient molecular relapse followed by sustained remission for 15 months. Thus, DLI with or without interferon alpha might prove to be a promising treatment option with tolerable side-effects in relapsed CML after cord blood transplantation.

A Multifaceted Strategy to Reduce Inappropriate Use of Fresh Frozen Plasma Transfusions in the Intensive Care Unit. Conference Paper ...
Transfusion of blood and blood products is a potentially life-saving measure, but is not without risk.1 Fresh-frozen plasma (FFP) is produced from a single whole-blood donor unit, or through plasmapheresis.2 Despite the lack of cellular components in FFP, complications may follow transfusion. These include allergic reactions, transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI), haemolysis, fluid overload and infectious complications.3 Therefore, FFP transfusion should be restricted to cases where its clinical benefit has been established.1. Despite available guidelines on appropriate indications,2 there is increasing worldwide use of FFP transfusion4 with inappropriate indications,5 particularly in tertiary healthcare settings.4 We evaluated the utilisation of FFP and the prescription practices of attending clinicians in a South African tertiary hospital.. Materials and methods. All patients who received FFP transfusions from February to April 2010 at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital were included. ...
An apparatus for producing blood component products. In one embodiment, a plurality of a predetermined type of blood component is harvested from a source of whole blood. At least two on-line yield determination techniques are utilized to determine the yield of the harvested blood components. One is a predetermined yield prediction technique and the second is a predetermined yield monitoring technique, each of which are individually calibrated in relation to a predetermined off-line yield determination technique. The predetermined yield prediction and monitoring techniques each provide the yield of the harvested blood components and each is then utilized to provide a determined yield. Consequently, when the harvested blood components are packaged the determined yield may be associated therewith, thereby providing a blood component product.

BACKGROUND: Enteroviruses are non-enveloped, frequently pathogenic RNA viruses infecting humans. Infection is potentially transmissible through blood or blood component transfusion from donor in the viremic phase before seroconversion for antibody. To investigate the threat to blood safety from enteroviruses, a large-scale survey of frequency and levels of viremia in blood donors was conducted. STUDY DESIGNS AND METHODS: Blood donations from Scotland over a period of 22 calendar months were screened for enterovirus RNA sequences by PCR. Positive samples were quantified, and serotypes were identified by nucleotide sequencing of VP1. RESULTS: From a total of 3658 pools of 95 donations tested, 73 samples that were enterovirus-positive were identified (corrected annual frequency 0.024% or 1 in 4000). The highest rates of viremia were in late summer months (e.g., 0.055%, 1 in 1800 in July) and lowest from January to May (0.009 and 0.012%). Viral loads ranged from 500 (the lower cutoff of the assay) to
Why this is important:- Audits have shown that fresh frozen plasma is widely used for non-bleeding patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) and many other clinical settings. There is a large variation in dose and no real evidence base to guide practice. Fresh frozen plasma transfusions may cause adverse outcomes in people who are critically ill, including transfusion-related acute lung injury, transfusion-related circulatory overload, multi-organ failure and an increased risk of infections ...
A system and method are used in connection with processing of blood components. The processing of blood components may involve centrifugal separation and/or filtering of the blood components. In some examples, at least some blood components are centrifugally separated in a chamber and then filtered via a filter rotating along with a centrifuge rotor, wherein the filter is located closer than the chamber to an axis of rotation of the rotor. The filter may include a porous filtration medium configured to filter leukocytes, platelets, and/or red blood cells. Some examples include a pressure sensor sensing pressure of pumped blood components. The sensed pressure may be used in connection with controlling the pumping of the blood products and/or in connection with determining the location of an interface associated with the blood products. Other uses of the sensed pressure are also possible.
Advances in the understanding of the coagulation imbalance in liver disease have experts questioning the clinical efficacy of current plasma transfusion practices in patients with liver disease. Having recently discovered a large previously unrecognized risk (TRALI) of plasma transfusion in this patient population, the investigators now believe the current clinical transfusion paradigm under-recognizes risk and overvalues the benefit of plasma transfusion in bleeding patients with liver disease. Though experts have recommended more judicious use of plasma, clinical practice remains variable. Transfusion triggers and thresholds are often arbitrarily set based on conventional coagulation studies and evidence to guide clinicians on plasma dosing required to achieve these laboratory thresholds does not exist. The investigators hypothesize that a restrictive plasma transfusion strategy in critically ill chronic liver disease patients with acute gastrointestinal bleeding will decrease a surrogate ...
A simple blood separation kit that is suitable for small surgeries for single-usage to separate whole blood into blood components, the separation kit comprising: a) two reservoirs for separating whole blood into blood components, each reservoir being connected to the other reservoir via a hollow tube at an outlet/inlet port, permitting transfer of blood components between said reservoirs; b) a pump mechanism in communication with the two reservoirs via the hollow tube and for injecting/suctioning blood components into and out of the reservoirs via the hollow tube; and c) a valve means for substantially closing the inlet/outlet port of the reservoirs while the pump mechanism is in operation injecting/suctioning blood components into or out of the reservoirs.
A blood component collection system with optimization capabilities. In one embodiment, process parameters are derived from an input/configured predetermined blood component yield and which is based upon the maximization of at least one process parameter. Thereafter, the blood component collection procedure is performed with these derived process control parameters. In another embodiment, process parameters are derived from an input total procedure time from a maximized value for at least one of the other process control parameters so as to maximize blood component yield in this fixed time. Thereafter, the blood component collection procedure is performed with these derived parameters.
A method separates blood by centrifugation in a rotating chamber into a first separated blood component, a residual blood fluid, and an interface between the first separated blood component and the residual blood fluid. The method withdraws the first separated blood component out of the rotating chamber through a first outlet port, and also withdraws the residual blood fluid out of the rotating chamber through a second outlet port. During the separating step, the method accumulates a second separated blood component in the interface without withdrawal from the rotating chamber by monitoring the location of the interface within the rotating chamber and maintaining the interface at a location spaced away from flow communication with both the first and second outlet pods. After a selected time period, the method shifts the location of the interface within the rotating chamber into flow communication with a selected outlet port and withdraws the second separated blood component from the rotating chamber
Young Blood and Plasma Transfusions. The FDA recently warned that plasma infusions from young people provides no proven clinical benefit against normal aging, Alzheimers disease, or a host of other diseases. Directors Gottlieb and Marks from the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research say young-blood transfusions can pose risks.. Most research thus far into young-blood transfusions has been conducted in mice. Some of the mouse studies have been encouraging, but other studies have been less encouraging. One biotech company is currently testing a plasma-derived product in Alzheimers patients; a previous study from the company yielded mixed results.. One startup company with locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Tampa, Fla., and Omaha, Neb was selling young-blood transfusions at a cost of $8,000 for 1 liter of young blood, or $12,000 for 2 liters. Following a statement released by the FDA regarding young-blood, a notice on the companies site said it would no longer offer the ...

Plasma transfusions were typically not given in isolation. Approximately 77% of the patients received other blood components. Intuitively this is not a surprise, particularly in the arena of massive hemorrhage protocols secondary to trauma or non-trauma situations. Cardiovascular surgery had the highest use. The primary reason documented for plasma transfusion, across all facilities, was treatment of coagulopathy i.e., not for diagnosis of TTP or other illnesses that might necessitate plasma exchange. Again, not unanticipated. Over 22,000 invasive procedures were performed on the same day as transfusion with central venous catheter placement leading the pack, followed closely behind by UGI endoscopy, paracentesis, thoracentesis and bronchoscopy. All of these minimally invasive procedures have been identified in previous meta-analyses as not benefiting from prophylactic plasma transfusion, in terms of bleeding outcomes.4,5.

Information on the management of casualties from the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq has brought in to question the traditional approach to blood transfusion in hemorrhaging patients. Present recommendations for when to transfuse plasma products is when coagulation tests become abnormal. The proposed trial will investigate whether the more aggressive plasma transfusion strategies as advocated from researchers based on the Central Asian conflicts is valid. Since a study to determine the full impact of an altered plasma transfusion practice would require thousands of patients, a feasibility trial is appropriate and is being proposed. The hypotheses are thus:. Primary Hypothesis- A multicentre trial that investigates the earlier use of plasma in patients with hemorrhagic shock going for emergency surgery will be feasible.. Secondary Hypotheses- The early use of a universal donor blood plasma (AB+ plasma) in patients with shock due to blood loss (i.e. hemorrhagic) going for emergency ...

There has always been something a little bit magical about blood. Vampires suck the blood of their victims to maintain their immortality. To maintain her beauty and youth, Elizabeth Bathory, a 17th-century countess, reportedly bathed in the blood of the women she murdered. Companies in the United States will transfuse you with the blood of a young person to treat any number of diseases. But vampires dont actually exist, Bathory probably didnt bathe in the blood of her victims (although she probably did murder them) and theres no evidence that getting a transfusion of a young persons blood will cure anything.. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently warned consumers against this practice after receiving reports that young blood transfusions were being marketed as a way to reverse everything from normal aging to memory loss and for diseases like Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimers, heart disease and post-traumatic stress disorder. The FDA statement explains that some ...

The blood plasma of people who have recovered from the new coronavirus infection may help critically ill COVID-19 patients recover, a new study finds.. Of 25 sick patients given plasma transfusions, 19 improved and 11 left the hospital, the researchers reported. None of the patients had side effects from the transfusion.. While physician scientists around the world scrambled to test new drugs and treatments against the COVID-19 virus, convalescent serum therapy emerged as potentially one of the most promising strategies, explained lead researcher Dr. James Musser, chair of the department of pathology and genomic medicine at Houston Methodist hospital. With no proven treatments or cures for COVID-19 patients, now was the time in our history to move ahead rapidly.. Plasma transfusions from recovered patients have been used since at least 1918 during the Spanish Flu pandemic and in 2003 in the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) pandemic. It was also employed in the influenza H1N1 pandemic ...

Systolic blood pressure is 80, pulse is 150, her extremities feel cool, and capillary refill is prolonged.. Circulation. We should not be satisfied with the aggregate number when looking at blood pressure. How fast does the heart have to beat to generate the aggregate number? How much of the BP is created by constricted arterioles starving their distal capillary beds? The composite of 80 in this case does not equate with adequate perfusion.. Lacking a universal donor blood, a saline bolus is started. Type and crossmatch are sent. We use whole blood; no component therapy here.

The apheresis process allows selective collection of blood components (red blood cells, platelets and plasma). Apheresis donation makes it possible to safely donate a larger quantity of blood components required for a given blood type while the donor is at the Globule Centre. Apheresis also allows more than one blood component to be collected during a single donation.. Thanks to these new collection options, Héma-Québec is better equipped to respond to the needs of hospital patients. As transfusion patients should ideally receive blood components that are compatible with their blood type, a constant supply of components is required for each blood group. The blood reserve thus requires careful planning. Apheresis donation allows demand to be met more efficiently.. About Héma-Québec ...
STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: A detailed microcosting study was used to cost two key inputs into transfusion: transfusion laboratory and nursing inputs. For each input, data collection forms were developed to capture staff time, equipment, and consumables associated with each step in the transfusion process. Costing results were combined with costs of blood product wastage to calculate the cost per unit transfused, separately for different blood products. Data were collected in 2014/15 British pounds and converted to US dollars.. RESULTS: A total of 438 data collection forms were completed by 74 staff. The cost of administering blood was $71 (£49) per unit for red blood cells, $84 (£58) for platelets, $55 (£38) for fresh-frozen plasma, and $72 (£49) for cryoprecipitate.. CONCLUSIONS: Blood administration costs add substantially to the costs of the blood products themselves. These are frequently incurred costs; applying estimates to the blood components supplied to UK hospitals in 2015, the ...

The objective of this project is to develop a portable, passive system for rapid and efficient blood component separation. While a number of macroscale devices (based on centrifugation) are routinely employed in laboratory settings to separate red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets from plasma, they are bulky, expensive, labor-intensive, and can compromise cellular integrity. An emerging class of microfabricated devices are being developed to address a variety of point-of-care style applications, but they are only capable of processing low-volume and/or extremely dilute blood samples. To address the practical limitations of both approaches, we have developed a straightforwardmesoscopicsolution to reliably separate a unit of undiluted whole blood into RBCs, platelets, and plasma within the same amount of time as conventional techniques, but with reduced energy requirements and cellular damage ...
Whole blood collections are manufactured into various blood components, and each component type is intended to meet a particular patients clinical need. These include red blood cells to improve oxygen delivery to tissues, platelets to treat bleeding, or plasma to replace proteins. See the Circular of Information for more indications.

Question about target INRs when treating coagulopathic patients with frozen plasma or prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) Question: On page 36 of Bloody Easy 4: Blood Transfusions, Blood Alternatives and Transfusion Reactions. A Guide to Transfusion Medicine Fourth Edition (1), the threshold INR for plasma transfusion is greater than or equal to 1.8. On page 126, regarding the use of prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) for emergency warfarin reversal, the threshold INR is greater than or equal to 1.5. Why is the INR threshold for plasma 1.8, and the threshold for PCCs 1.5? Shouldnt they be the same? Answer by Dr. Allison Collins, MD: Coagulation factors are at sufficient levels (30% of normal) for normal hemostasis at an INR of about 1.7 (2). The INR is a poor predictor of bleeding risk, particularly if only mildly elevated, and there is no good evidence for use of a target INR of 1.5 vs 1.8 for prevention or treatment of bleeding. INR reversal with plasma is not as effective as INR ...
Culture-based and molecular assays have been developed for the screening of platelet concentrates and other blood components for bacterial contaminations. In this review, the principles of the assays are outlined.. The focus of this review is the assessment of the analytical qualities of the methods. Spiking studies by adding defined levels of a wide range of bacteria to the complex biological matrix provide the first basis to evaluate and compare the qualities of methods for bacterial detection. The sensitivity acceptable for reliable screening for bacteria critically depends on the timing of either early sampling (within a period of up to 24 h after preparation of the blood component) or late sampling (a few hours before issuing the blood component). Large screening studies are essential to confirm both adequate sensitivity and specificity of the testing. In the ideal setting, these studies are prospectively planned and include systematic surveillance of adverse events in response to the ...
When we initiated this clinical trial in 2011, early experience with ibrutinib suggested an increased risk of bleeding-related adverse events. We therefore prospectively incorporated clinically relevant platelet function testing and measurements of coagulation factors into the trial design in order to define predictors of, and study the mechanism for, bleeding on ibrutinib. Grade 1-2 bleeding or bruising-related adverse events were recorded in 55% of our patients on ibrutinib over a median follow-up of 24 months, with 51% of all patients experiencing an event within the first 6 months. Notably, the cumulative incidence of bleeding plateaued by 6 months, suggesting that the risk of bleeding on continued therapy decreases. In comparable cohorts of CLL patients receiving alternative therapy, minor bleeding has been reported in between 12% (at a median duration of 5.3 months on ofatumumab) and 17% of patients (at a median duration of 5.5 months on placebo plus rituximab).2111 Adjusting for the ...
A new, automated technique for collection and instant preparation of blood components has been developed. The device enables the combined collection of red cells (250 mL) and plasma (475 mL). No adverse effects were seen in the donors. The blood components were of good quality. The impact of the pre-separation temperature on whole blood was studied in two studies. In the first study blood was collected and put into stoppered test tubes. The test tubes were then put into water bath at 15,20,25 and 30 °C. Samples were taken at intervals during 24 hours. The lactate concentration increased and 2,3-DPG concentrations decreased during storage and at a higher rate with higher temperature. In the second study blood was collected and dived into half units. One half unit was actively cooled to 20 °C the other half kept at 28 °C. Blood component preparation was done after 6 hours. There were a significant change in 2,3-DPG, pH and lactate already after two hours hold of the whole blood. The differences ...

Hypothesis A massive transfusion protocol (MTP) decreases the use of blood components, as well as turnaround times, costs, and mortality. Design Retrospective before-and-after cohort study. Setting Academic level I urban trauma center. Patients and Methods Blood component use was compared in 132 patients during a 2-year period following the implementation of an MTP; 46 patients who were treated the previous year served as historical control subjects. Intervention Introduction of an MTP that included recombinant factor VIIa for patients with exsanguinating hemorrhage. Main Outcome Measures The amount of each blood component transfused, turnaround times, blood bank and hospital charges, and mortality rates. Results After introduction of the MTP, there was a significant decrease in packed red blood cells, plasma, and platelet use. The turnaround time for the first shipment was less than 10 minutes, and the time between the first and second shipments was reduced from 42 to 18 minutes, compared with

No toxicity or adverse events were noted.. - M. Aldouri. ...
BACKGROUND: Infants and children undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass become substantially hemodiluted secondary to the volume used to prime the oxygenator. Fresh-frozen plasma has been included in the prime to lessen dilution of clotting factors and correspondingly minimize blood loss and transfusions. METHODS: We prospectively randomized 56 patients weighing 10 kg or less who required cardiopulmonary bypass to receive either one unit of fresh-frozen plasma or 200 mL of albumin 5% in the prime. After protamine administration, samples for prothrombin time, fibrinogen, platelet count, and thromboelastogram were obtained. Mediastinal chest tube drainage and transfusion requirements were documented. RESULTS: There were no significant differences between groups regarding demographic or surgical characteristics. Blood loss during the first 24 hours was similar in both groups, but total transfusions were significantly greater in those who received fresh-frozen plasma instead of albumin 5% in the prime ...
In my last post, I discussed the growing number of choices for plasma replacement. Today Ill look at some work that was done that tried to determine if any one of them is better than the others when used for the massive transfusion protocol (MTP).. As noted last time, fresh frozen plasma (frozen within 8 hours, FFP) and frozen plasma (frozen within 24 hours, FP) have a shelf life of 5 days once thawed. Liquid plasma (never frozen, LQP) is good for the 21 days after the original unit was donated, plus the same 5 days, for a total of 26 days.. LQP is not used at most US trauma centers. It is more commonly used in Europe, and a study there suggested that the use of thawed plasma increased short term mortality when compared to liquid plasma. To look at this phenomenon more closely, a group from UTHSC Houston and LSU measured hemostatic profiles on both types of plasma at varying times during their useful life.. All products were analyzed with thromboelastography (TEG) and thrombogram, and platelet ...

Thirty patients with various types of chronic liver disease and a prothrombin time prolonged for four or more seconds who required needle liver biopsy for diagnostic purposes were given either fresh frozen plasma or a concentrate of clotting factors as a prophylactic measure. The prothrombin time returned to within normal limits in seven of the 15 patients given the concentrate and in three of those receiving fresh frozen plasma. Levels of factors II, IX, and X showed increases of about 30% following concentrate administration; corresponding rises in the group given fresh frozen plasma were less. This was because of the smaller quantity of clotting factors administered with fresh frozen plasma and the increase in factor II and IX activity/kg body weight/unit of clotting factor injected was greater when fresh frozen plasma was used. In neither group was there clinical evidence of bleeding, but it was of interest that most of the clotting factor levels, except in factor II, before biopsy were ...

Resuscitation of the critically ill trauma patient involves a myriad of high-stakes, time-sensitive management decisions. The landscape is shifting rapidly: new evidence on hemostatic resuscitation and component therapy in hemorrhagic shock, peri-arrest point-of-care ultrasound, novel approaches to resuscitative thoracotomy and trauma RSI have at once clarified and muddied the waters. In this rapid-fire, case-based session, Petro and Hicks will debate some of the recent and potentially practice changing literature to assist with key inflection points in the care of the sickest -- and sometimes deadest -- trauma patients, and engage in some trauma dogmalysis in the process.. ...
A blood transfusion is when blood or parts of the blood are given to a person through an IV line placed in a vein. The blood and blood parts used for transfusion are called blood products. The blood usually comes from another person (donor). This sheet tells you more about how blood and blood products may be used to help treat cancer.

Purpose of review Hemorrhage remains the primary cause of preventable death on the battlefield and in civilian trauma. Hemorrhage control is multifactorial and starts with point-of-injury care. Surgical hemorrhage control and time from injury to surgery is paramount; however, interventions in the prehospital environment and perioperative period affect outcomes. The purpose of this review is to understand concepts and strategies for successful management of the bleeding military patient. Understanding the life-threatening nature of coagulopathy of trauma and implementing strategies aimed at full spectrum hemorrhage management from point of injury to postoperative care will result in improved outcomes in patients with life-threatening bleeding. Recent findings Timely and appropriate therapies impact survival. Blood product resuscitation for life-threatening hemorrhage should either be with whole blood or a component therapy strategy that recapitulates the functionality of whole blood. The US ...

A single needle system for withdrawing donated blood, processing the blood to harvest components such as platelets, and returning processed blood to the donor through the single needle. Processing is performed by a centrifuge which separates blood components into stratified layers with a buffy coat containing platelets and white blood cells stably interfacing a red blood cell layer. Blood is withdrawn during a draw cycle and returned to the donor during a return cycle. A recirculation system is provided so that blood flows at a reduced rate through the processing system during the return cycle in order to minimize return cycle time while maintaining the stable position of the interface between buffy coat and red blood cell layers. A storage bag receives processed blood during the draw cycle and blood is squeezed from the bag during the return cycle, a portion returned to the donor and another portion entering the recirculation path. A pressure sensor is located in the return path to indicate an empty

The electronic algorithm identified 510 (12.5%) of the 4,070 patients as having a high probability of TACO (321 in 2004 and 189 in 2011). Manual review showed that 176 (34.5%) of these 510 patients had experienced TACO (agreement by κ statistic, 0.46). One hundred nineteen TACO cases occurred in 2004 (14 of which were considered to have evidence of both TRALI and TACO), and 57 occurred in 2011 (8 of which were considered to have evidence of both TRALI and TACO). Overall, TACO occurred within 6 h of the last intraoperative blood product transfusion at a rate of 4.3% (176 of 4,070 [95% CI, 3.7 to 5.0%]). The incidence of TACO decreased significantly from 5.5% (95% CI, 4.6 to 6.5%) in 2004 to 3.0% (95% CI, 2.3 to 3.9%) in 2011 (P , 0.001). This reduction in the rate of TACO was not fully explained by any of the stratified analyses. Specifically, multiple logistic regression analyses revealed a statistically significant reduction in TACO from 2004 to 2011 even after adjustment for variation in age ...

Background: Anti-SARS-CoV-2 virus antibody levels in convalescent plasma (CP), which may be useful in severe Anti-SARS-CoV-2 virus infections, have been rarely reported.Results: A total of eight donors were considered for enrollment; two of them were excluded because of ineligible routine check. Of the six remaining participants, five samples were tested weakly positive by the IgM ELISA. Meanwhile, high titers of IgG were observed in five samples. The patient treated with CP did not require mechanical ventilation 11 days after plasma transfusion, and was then transferred to a general ward.Conclusions: Our serological findings in convalescent plasma from recovered patients may help facilitate understanding of the SARS-CoV-2 infection and establish CP donor screening protocol in COVID-19 outbreak.Methods: Anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies including IgM and IgG were measured by two enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) in convalescent plasma from six donors who have recovered from coronavirus disease 2019

While I was visiting Last Chance Corral one of the foals was lethargic and the staff was concerned he may not have received the much needed colostrum. To test the level of antibodies in his blood a snap test is performed. They asked me if I had ever done one….. I dont like blood.. I had not done a snap test but I do like learning. I can draw blood and do many things to keep my horses safe and healthy…I dont like blood. As evidence of how crummy this foal is feeling watch how quietly he stands before, during and after I draw the blood.. Thankfully this little guy had received what he needed. Unfortunately the foal in this photo taken at OSU vet hospital had not. She can be seen here receiving an emergency blood plasma transfusion.. ...
Last year, when Tigger was hospitalized for IMHA, the lab made a mistake and they treated her for babesia as well. When I was told she was going to die no matter the plasma transfusions and everything else they have tried , the Dr. at the time also told me that a mistake was made by the lab. While she fought the lab to return the money for the testing and some of the vet care, it did not help the fact that my poor dog spent her last days voming as a result of the meds for babebesia.When I was told about the babesia, I rushed to test all my dogs at the time (4). I found my invoice for it, dated 26 Jan 2011. The veterinary facility on base sent out the blood, to the Vector Borne Disease Diagnostic Laboratory in NC, per my request.They called me when it returned, all dogs negative.I trusted them to read a fizzle negative or positive on a lab paperwork ...
In the last decade, new procedures have been implemented in advanced countries to guarantee the safety of stored blood. These include routine nucleic acid testing for transfusion transmitted infections and universal leukodepletion. However, as a consequence, the cost of stored blood has risen dramatically and its inappropriate use will result in a progressively greater wastage of resources. Strict donor selection and a progressively ageing population already limit the number of potential blood donors. There is growing concern on the potential impact of transmissible disease screening on the number of volunteers willing to donate blood and the handling of those testing positive because shortages in supply may influence red cell use independently of clinical indications for transfusion. Therefore, hospitals have been forced to elaborate strategies to ensure appropriate use of blood and components ...

Donating plasma is similar to donating blood. The process of donating plasma, otherwise known as plasmapheresis, takes approximately 30-50 minutes. During the donation process, plasma is separated from other blood components and kept while the red blood cells and other blood components are returned to your body. You can donate blood plasma twice very seven days, but not two days in a row.. ...
All manufactured blood components released for issue to hospital customers have a standard format label applied to the container/bag. This is often referred to as the end label. Labelling of blood and blood components by blood operators in Canada aligns with the ISBT 128 Standard: Technical Specification (published by ICCBBA, Inc.), the definitive source describing the ISBT 128 labelling standard. There are several options outlined in the ISBT 128 Standard: Technical Specification that are to be nationally determined.

fluid; both weigh approximately one pound. The average adult has 10 pints of blood in their body. Blood makes up on average 7% of your total body weight.. Q: How long will it take to replenish the blood?. Blood volume or plasma is replaced within 24 hours. Red cells need about 4-5 weeks for complete replacement. This is why different blood components can be donated at different frequency levels. Whole blood can be donated every 56 days, platelets every 7 days and plasma every 4 weeks (maximum of 24 times a year).. Q: How will I feel after the donation?. A: Most people feel great when the donation is complete. It is important to eat well prior to donation to lessen chances of post donation issues. After donating, drink extra fluids for the next 24 hours to help the body replenish its fluids.. Q: Can I donate during my menstrual period?. A: Yes, if you are feeling well.. Q: How soon after donating can I practice sports?. A: Avoid strenuous activities such as lifting, pushing, or picking up heavy ...

  • These automated platforms have been pivotal in the rapid detection of Transfusion Transmissible Infections (TTI's) in blood samples and can precisely eliminate human error during the transfusion process. (
  • It stimulates the growth of certain white blood cells, which are essential to prevent or fight infections, a common life-threatening risk in patients receiving myelosuppressive chemotherapy. (
  • Because blood and plasma products originate from human blood through blood donation, prevention of transmitted infections (by, for example, bacteria, viruses, protozoa and prions) form the use of blood, blood components, plasma and plasma-derived medicinal products is of paramount importance. (
  • Blood transfusion-associated infections are rarer now than in the past due to improved blood donor screening. (
  • Infections: Viruses, bacteria and parasites that were present in the donor's blood can escape the detection screening. (
  • WNV is usually transmitted through the bite of the Culex mosquito, but can also be spread in blood transfusions, organ transplants, breast milk, intrauterine exposure and laboratory-acquired infections. (
  • The sickle-shaped cells become more numerous when people have infections or low levels of oxygen in the blood. (
  • These groups of blood cells are used to detect a wide range of disorders, including infections, anemia, bleeding disorders, or leukemia. (
  • As mentioned in our News from July 2013 , this document addresses manufacturers of licensed whole blood and blood components intended for transfusion or for further manufacture, including Source Plasma. (

  • If you have low blood volume, you are given plasma and/or other fluids to maintain blood pressure. (
  • Our technology addresses important medical markets: blood and plasma component collection, the surgical suite and hospital transfusion services. (
  • It contains all the cellular and plasma components of the blood. (
  • It is to be administered to patients who are in need of red blood cells, plasma and platelets. (
  • Keep in mind that stored whole blood still contains all the cellular and plasma components of the blood except platelets. (
  • Packed red blood cells (pRBC) is a unit of blood that has had the red blood cells separated from the plasma content within eight hours of collection. (
  • Fresh frozen plasma (FFP) is a unit of blood that has been separated from red blood cells and the plasma components are remaining. (
  • Other blood products such as cryoprecipitate, cryoprecipitate-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma are also available as component therapy. (
  • Most commercial blood banks offer platelet-rich plasma. (
  • People who have hemophilia, a disease that affects the blood's ability to clot, need plasma or the clotting factors contained in plasma to help their blood clot and prevent bleeding. (
  • It is made up of several main components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. (
  • Blood cells are suspended in a watery, yellowish liquid called plasma, which also contains proteins partly responsible for blood clotting and globulins that help fight infection and disease. (
  • This includes blood products for which haemovigilance is in force, plasma products that must comply with pharmacovigilance regulations, substitute products and stem cells. (
  • It's composed of both liquids (plasma) made of protein, salt, and water, and solids made of platelets, white blood cells, and red blood cells. (
  • It usually occurs within the first 6 hours following the administration of plasma and plasma rich blood products. (
  • Transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI) is characterized by tachypnea, tachycardia, cyanosis and dyspnea and it usually occurs within the first 6 hours following the administration of plasma or plasma-rich blood products. (
  • Although it may develop due to all blood products, it has been reported that the transfusion of platelet suspensions which have been kept in a blood bank for a long time or blood products containing more than 50 mL of plasma increase the risk (2). (
  • Blood disorders can also affect the liquid portion of blood, called plasma. (
  • In 1997, Lo discovered fetal DNA in maternal plasma, which is the liquid component of a pregnant woman's blood. (

  • If your child needs a blood transfusion, the doctor will describe the procedure. (
  • However, the body's compensation mechanisms are not always the same, in that other factors come into play such as how quickly anaemia starts to set in, the condition of the heart and the respiratory system , the amount of blood and the patient's metabolic state . (
  • To diagnose Lyme disease, a patient's blood is tested for antibodies that develop as part of the immune response. (
  • The patient's vital signs (temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate) are checked before, during, and after the transfusion. (

  • Patient's peripheral blood smear did not reveal any parasites. (
  • Physicians have a variety of ways to monitor the effects of chemotherapy on the patient's cancer, including physical examinations, blood tests, CT scans , MRI scans , and x-rays . (
  • Prespecified ancillary outcomes included time to hemostasis, blood product volumes transfused, complications, incidence of surgical procedures, and functional status. (
  • Losing large amounts of blood quickly can lead to serious complications or death. (
  • Although all types of blood loss may cause complications, it is the large and rapid blood losses that occur during surgery and trauma that are most likely to cause severe complications or death. (
  • The amount of blood loss that may lead to complications depends on the individual person. (
  • The more blood is lost, and the faster it is lost, the more severe the symptoms and complications. (
