The Standards for a Patient Blood Management Program (PBM Standards) can help facilities that are implementing or enhancing PBM efforts to have a solid foundation for maintaining and optimizing the care of patients who may or may not need transfusion. Like other AABB Standards, this edition includes overarching quality standards as well as specific technical standards.

Significant changes to the 4th edition:

  • Item #24 in the activity table requires that there be care for patients undergoing cardiac surgery or structural heart procedures in activity level 1.
  • New Standard 1.5.1 requires that patient blood management programs have operational continuity plans in place to address potential and actual inventory shortages.
  • New Standard requires that patient blood management programs take corrective action when employee competence has not been demonstrated.
  • Standard 5.1.1 added a new standard requiring that individuals with heavy bleeding potential are evaluated and managed appropriately.
