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.

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.

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 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
... 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..

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 ...

Guideline for A Summary Introduction This guideline is updated from the Expert Working Group: Guidelines for Cell for Adults Children 1 Updated 2009 Transfusion: Risks Informed Consent Physicians ordering
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 ...

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
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury (TRALI) is an important life-threatening complication that is related with blood transfusion. The frequency is reported as 1/5.000. It is generally characterized with hypoxia that appears at the 2-6th hours after the blood transfusion, bilateral infiltration in the chest radiography, and non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Acute respiratory distress, hypotension, tachycardia and fever accompany the clinical picture. Past surgery, blood transfusion, and sepsis are among the factors that trigger the disease. In this study, the efficiency of the hemodialysis applied in the right time in the treatment of a heavy TRALI case developed after a blood transfusion has been presented..

Study evaluates associations between fresh frozen plasma (FFP) and platelet transfusions with long-term functional outcome and survival in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and moderate hemostatic laboratory abnormalities. Data examined included patient demographics, several initial injury severity metrics, daily laboratory values, Glasgow Outcome Score- Extended (GOSE) scores, Functional Status Examination (FSE) scores, and survival to 6 months. Correlations were evaluated between these variables and transfusion of FFP, platelets, packed red blood cells (RBCs), cryoprecipitate, recombinant factor VIIa, and albumin. Analyses showed significant correlations between poor outcome scores and FFP, platelet, or packed RBC transfusion; the volume of FFP or packed RBCs transfused also correlated with poor outcome. Several measures of initial injury and laboratory abnormalities also correlated with poor outcome. Patient age, initial Glasgow Coma Scale score, and highest recorded serum sodium ...
Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) released a new report on product recalls in a new landscape. The report notes that product recalls are risk-laden and can impact everyone along a supply chain, from the wholesaler and retailer to the manufacturer.. The report looks at 367 insurance product recalls across 12 sectors and 28 countries. Data from the report spans between 2012 and the first half of 2017. Allianz found that product contamination was the second most common reason behind product recalls just behind defective products. The average cost of a recall was $12 million with large-scale recalls costing companies far more. Auto recalls have far-reaching costs that can swell to the $100+ million mark.. "Personal injuries that are caused by defective products are handled under product liability law. Strict product liability, the law in most states, allows a legal action to be filed against designers, manufacturers, or sellers that sell any defective product that results in injury. ...

A blood product is any therapeutic substance prepared from human blood. This includes: whole blood; blood components; and plasma derivatives. Whole blood is not commonly used in transfusion medicine. Blood components include: red blood cell concentrates or suspensions; platelets produced from whole blood or via apheresis; plasma; and cryoprecipitate. Plasma derivatives are plasma proteins prepared under pharmaceutical manufacturing conditions, these include: albumin; coagulation factor concentrates; and immunoglobulins. Blood products may also be called blood-based products to differ from blood substitutes, which generally refer to artificially produced products. Also, although many blood products have the effect of volume expansion, the group is usually distinguished from volume expanders, which generally refer to artificially produced substances and are thereby within the scope of blood substitutes.

Transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI) is the leading cause of transfusion-associated mortality in the US. Previously, we established an immune-mediated TRALI mouse model, wherein mice with cognate antigen were challenged with MHC class I mAb. In this study, when mice housed in a rodent, specific pathogen-free barrier room were challenged with MHC I mAb, there was significant protection from TRALI compared with nonbarrier mice. Priming mice with LPS restored lung injury with mAb challenge. Using TLR4-deficient bone marrow chimeras, the priming phenotype was restricted to animals with WT hematopoietic cells, and depletion of either neutrophils or platelets was protective. Both neutrophils and platelets were sequestered in the lungs of mice with TRALI, and retention of platelets was neutrophil dependent. Interestingly, treatment with aspirin prevented lung injury and mortality, but blocking the P selectin or CD11b/CD18 pathways did not. These data suggest a 2-step mechanism of TRALI: ...
While longer storage of buffy coat-derived PLTs was associated with an increased risk of TRALI, storage of plasma for up to 2 years and red blood cells for up to 35 days was not associated with the risk of TRALI.

The US Department of Defense recently made the decision to open direct ground combat roles to women. Blood product transfusion is an essential component of the US Military guidelines for tactical combat casualty care and damage control resuscitation, but blood transfusion carries with it the specific side effect of alloimmunization-a uniquely significant side effect for young women who may desire subsequent pregnancies. Presently to be considered are the changes that may need to be made to blood transfusion in the setting of battlefield medicine to optimally care for combat-injured women, as a majority of the existing data regarding the risks of transfusion in the trauma setting involve predominantly men ...

Treatment for HUS is mostly supportive, with some HUS patients needing blood or plasma transfusions and total parenteral nutrition.
Inflammation of the pancreas can often be treated in your veterinarians office. Treatment for pancreatitis is essentially symptomatic and supportive and involves fluid therapy, pain relief, medications to control nausea and vomiting, antibiotics, and sometimes plasma transfusions. Because of the close association between intestinal inflammation and pancreatitis, your veterinarian may also prescribe a short course of corticosteroids until a final diagnosis can be made. If the inflammation is being caused by a medication your pet is taking, the medication will be withdrawn immediately.. It is important to restrict your cats activity level following any treatment to allow for healing. Your veterinarian may need to prescribe fluid therapy during this time to prevent dehydration.. If vomiting is persistent, drugs will be prescribed to help control it, and if your pet is experiencing severe pain, pain relievers can be given. (Pain medication should only be given with supervision from your ...
Annual Sympoisum Transfusion Medicine of the Dutch Blood Transfusion Society (NVB) and TRIP (Transfusion and Transplantation Reactions in Patients) will take place on 25-26 May 2016.
Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) may be associated with high rates of inappropriate transfusion with some studies indicating rates of up to 50 per cent non-compliance with established guidelines. The current British Committee for Standards in Haematology (BCSH) guidelines on the use of FFP aim to reinforce the message regarding avoidance of its inappropriate use. An audit of FFP use in 2007 in the South Central region, revealed that FFP was used for warfarin reversal in 26 per cent of the cases audited. FFP weight related dosage was poorly implemented with weight being recorded in only 32 per cent of cases. The 2009 National Comparative Audit (NCA) programme indicated that FFP continued to be used for warfarin reversal and, was frequently given where there was no evidence of actual bleeding. An audit of FFP use in the South West in one large hospital, found that following a period of intensive educational measures, appropriate use of FFP improved dramatically, particularly with respect to use for ...
as well as Shock Trauma in Baltimore and teaches at Reanimate. When you come to the essence of this episode, the question is what is the emergency physicians role in the trauma resuscitation? Both Zaf and Zack agree; we need to be the resuscitationist in the trauma suite.

A labeling system to ensure that blood products are compatible with a patients blood type. A blood product housing, which is attached to a blood product, comprises a plurality of block-like projections and recesses corresponding to the antigens/antibody characteristics of a blood product. A patient housing, secured to the patient, comprises a plurality of mirror image three-dimensional block-like projections and recesses corresponding to the antigen/antibody characteristics of the patients blood. If the blocks and recesses of the housings mate and seat to one another this confirms the blood product is compatible with the blood of the patient. If the blocks and recesses of the housings do not mate and seat to one another this confirms the blood product is not compatible with the blood of the patient.

The dextran - solutions of the polysaccharides from cultures of several bacteria, their antigenic properties. The dextran may have varying degrees of polymerization and, consequently, different molecular weight; these can be obtained by plasma-substituting solutions for various applications. Solutions containing dextran with a high molecular weight, are used primarily as a means of hemodynamic, but with a lower molecular weight as a corrector of rheological properties of blood. When injected into the blood dextrans increase the oncotic pressure and increase the displacement of fluid from the tissues into the bloodstream. They increase the diuresis and thus the detoxification processes. Because in the body the partial hydrolysis of the dextrans are excreted mainly by the kidneys (renal failure is a limitation to their use ...

N2 - In March 1992, 12 bone marrow transplant patients at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center received blood components from donors who were anti-HCV-nonreactive by first generation ELISA but whose serum later tested anti-HCV-reactive to a second generation ELISA. All these blood components were further tested for anti-HCV using a second-generation RIBA and for HCV RNA by polymerase chain reaction. Recipient sera were tested for HCV RNA prior to and following blood component infusion. Blood components from four donors were positive for HCV RNA. All recipients of HCV RNA-positive blood components became viremic on the first day tested post-infusion. In addition, two recipients of HCV RNA-negative blood ...
BACKGROUND: Upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage affects 50 to 150 per 100,000 adults per year and has a high mortality. Red blood cell transfusions are frequently given, but their impact on rebleeding rates and mortality is not known. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of red blood cell transfusion in adults with upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Group Trials Register to February 2008, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (The Cochrane Library 2008, issue 1), MEDLINE (1950 to February 2008), EMBASE (1974 to February 2008), the Systematic Review Initiative database of randomised controlled trials, haematology and gastroenterology conference proceedings, and reference lists of articles. We also searched databases of ongoing clinical trials. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised and quasi-randomised studies comparing red blood cell transfusion and standard care with other intravenous fluid and standard
Background Platelet transfusions are used in modern clinical practice to prevent and treat bleeding in people who are thrombocytopenic due to bone marrow failure. Although considerable advances have been made in platelet transfusion therapy in the last 40 years, some areas continue to provoke debate, especially concerning the use of prophylactic platelet transfusions for the prevention of thrombocytopenic bleeding. This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in 2004, and previously updated in 2012 that addressed four separate questions: prophylactic versus therapeutic-only platelet transfusion policy; prophylactic platelet transfusion threshold; prophylactic platelet transfusion dose; and platelet transfusions compared to alternative treatments. This review has now been split into four smaller reviews looking at these questions individually; this review compares prophylactic platelet transfusion thresholds. Objectives To determine whether different platelet transfusion thresholds for

  • The development of hypoxemia will not distinguish between hydrostatic edema and TRALI, but investigators believe a significant change in oxygenation is clinically relevant and a more sensitive outcome variable for all transfusion-related pulmonary complications and therefore appropriate for use in this clinical trial. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We compared storage time of blood products transfused within 6 hours before the onset of TRALI to storage time of a representative sample of all blood products transfused in the Netherlands. (nih.gov)
  • While longer storage of buffy coat-derived PLTs was associated with an increased risk of TRALI, storage of plasma for up to 2 years and red blood cells for up to 35 days was not associated with the risk of TRALI. (nih.gov)
  • The proportion of TRALI cases related to plasma-rich components was lower than previously described. (nih.gov)
  • STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Through the Japanese Red Cross hemovigilance system, clinical reports on possible TT‐B19V were collected from 1999 to 2008, during which B19V donor screening (sensitivity, 1010 IU/mL) was conducted and repository blood samples from donors were available. (deepdyve.com)
  • The knowledge that HTLV-I can be transmitted by transfusion (5) prompted routine blood-donor screening in the United States and notification of past recipients of blood from positive donors (6, 7). (annals.org)
  • Main Outcome Measures The amount of each blood component transfused, turnaround times, blood bank and hospital charges, and mortality rates. (wright.edu)
  • We hypothesized that an MTP would improve turnaround times, reduce the use of blood products and associated charges, and possibly decrease mortality. (wright.edu)
  • Australian trauma patients (n = 86) who had been transfused with red blood cell (RBC) units between 2000 and 2012 with an injury severity score (ISS) of greater than 15 were recruited. (cdc.gov)
  • Furthermore, half of the patients exhibiting microchimerism were recorded to have had splenic injury or required splenectomy at the time of transfusion. (cdc.gov)
  • Some of the causes (Table 34.1) can be modified, which may facilitate prevention strategies, such as making the collection of blood samples more efficient in order to reduce losses, guiding fluid replacement therapy to avoid extreme hemodilution, and the supply of iron. (hellonursing.info)
  • Guidelines for blood transfusion (haemotherapy) / compiled by the Scientific Advisory Board of the German Medical Association and the Paul Ehrlich Institute. (who.int)
  • In response to calls for action, WHO has provided guidelines, physical standards, training and technical support to improve blood product quality, safety and availability in WHO regions and in countries. (who.int)
  • Our PGCert Blood Component Transfusion opens up career development opportunities for non-medical healthcare practitioners across a range of disciplines and specialities. (swansea.ac.uk)
  • The series, organized by Canadian Blood Services, is also open to all practitioners in the field of Transfusion Medicine. (blood.ca)
  • We also provide information to licensed blood establishments for submitting biologics license application supplements to include leukocytes reduced components. (fda.gov)
  • Results After introduction of the MTP, there was a significant decrease in packed red blood cells, plasma, and platelet use. (wright.edu)
  • blood tests to count the number of each of the different kinds of blood cells. (powershow.com)

  • P. vivax monoinfection was diagnosed by direct visualization of the parasite in Giemsa-stained peripheral blood films ( Figure 1 ) and rapid diagnostic test results (negative for histidine-rich protein 2 of P. falciparum and positive for P. vivax -specific lactate dehydrogenase). (cdc.gov)
  • The incidence of microchimerism may be affected by international disparities in blood processing methods or variations in transfusion practices. (cdc.gov)
