The AABB Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration, 10th Edition, will take effect Jan. 1, 2023. The Perioperative Standards Committee hopes to engage members in developing the 10th edition and asks interested parties to submit comments to help shape these updates. Please submit comments by Friday, Jan. 7, 2022. The Committee will review all responses when it meets to prepare the 10th edition in February 2022.
AABB will continue to hold the 60-day open comment period, currently scheduled to begin in February 2022, following the release of the proposed perioperative standards. Submitting comments prior to the Jan. 7 deadline will help guide the Perioperative Standards Committee as it works on the next edition.
