Case Studies in Patient Blood Management

Product Code: 156897

ISBN: 9781563959202

AABB and SABM have jointly developed this collection of clinical scenarios that typify the situations faced by those involved in patient care.

Case Studies in Patient Blood Management is a resource for anyone interested in patient-centered care—including clinicians, nurses, laboratory technologists, and pharmacists. Other health-care personnel such as ethicists and risk managers will benefit from this collection of typical clinical situations, developed jointly by AABB and SABM. Each scenario features learning objectives, a clinical situation, a discussion of patient blood management options, the evidence that supports each PBM approach discussed, and a listing of key points and references. Within that framework, each expert author contributes to a rich diversity of PBM options that are intended to stimulate thought and discussion, leading to improved patient care and clinical outcomes.

Scenarios include:

  • Orthopedic surgery patient
  • Cardiovascular surgery patient
  • Anemic obstetric patient
  • Gynecologic oncology patient requiring surgery
  • Hematology/oncology patient
  • Jehovah’s Witness patient
  • Bleeding patient who is taking target-specific oral anticoagulants
  • Bleeding patient taking antiplatelet drugs
  • Warfarin reversal in the hemorrhaging patient
  • Anemia in the critically ill ICU patient
