The field of patient blood management (PBM) has advanced considerably in the past decade with the recognition of the importance of blood conservation. For surgical patients, this involves preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative strategies to minimize blood loss, maximize blood conservation, and reduce exposure to blood transfusion. This eCast will examine interventions to reduce intraoperative blood loss including: use of antifibrinolytic agents, topical hemostatic agents, acute normovolemic hemodilution, deliberate hypotension, and avoidance of hypothermia.
