The 9th edition of Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration (Perioperative Standards) contains requirements that address perioperative collection and preparation of red cell and non-red-cell components. Its goal is to maintain and enhance the quality and safety of perioperative autologous blood collection and administration and to provide a basis for the AABB Accreditation Program. It reflects the concerns and priorities of several different aspects of the discipline, including the input of recognized experts in the field and the best interests of their patients. It was developed in the context of the global drive for quality in health care and internationally recognized principles of quality management.
Significant changes to the 9th edition:
Guidance for Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration, 9th edition, includes verbatim requirements from the Perioperative Standards interspersed with guidance. Language from the Perioperative Standards is presented; when there is appropriate guidance for that standard, the guidance language follows the standard with the heading “Guidance.” This format allows the reader to see both the requirement and the associated guidance side by side.
Please note that there is no guidance for some standards. The Perioperative Standards Committee has chosen to focus Guidance for Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration on those issues that may require additional context and/or examples to assist in attaining compliance with the Standards.
