AABB Guide to Patient Blood Management and Blood Utilization - Print

Product Code: 203412

ISBN: 9781563954115

Patient blood management (PBM), although practiced for decades, has come of age as a mainstream practice within the past decade. The goal of this Guide to Patient Blood Management and Blood Utilization is to serve as a concise yet comprehensive resource by first explaining the various aspects of PBM. Then the content dives into the review, audit, and measurement of program efforts. The metrics of blood utilization have been spurred by development of sophisticated information technology systems and widespread use of electronic health records. Both new and long-standing PBM programs can benefit from this Guide, as its goal is to promote the journey from being a good PBM program to becoming a great one. Topics covered:

  • Avoidance of allogeneic transfusion
  • Options available pre-, intra-, and postoperatively
  • Guidance for blood utilization
  • Methods for reviewing transfusion practices
  • How to audit transfusion decisions
  • Use of audit results to improve patient care
