OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to determine the incidence and causes of ABO typing discrepancies among patients and blood donors at our centre. BACKGROUND: An accurate interpretation of the ABO blood group of an individual is of utmost importance to ensure patient safety and good transfusion practices. METHODS: A retrospective observational study was carried out in the Department of Transfusion Medicine in our hospital from March 2013 to December 2015...

BACKGROUND: Although central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2 ) is used to decide on red blood cell (RBC) transfusion, whether its improvement is associated with parallel improvement in cerebral oxygenation is not adequately studied. This study looked at changes in regional cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2 ) following RBC transfusion in neuro-intensive care unit (ICU) patients. METHODS: In this prospective observational pilot study, rSO2 was measured in adult neuro-ICU patients before RBC transfusion, at the end and at 6, 12, 18 and 24 h after RBC transfusion...

BACKGROUND: Whether hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection can be transmitted by coagulation factor concentrates remains unclear. OBJECTIVES: The HEV seroprevalence in blood donors and recipients of coagulation factor concentrates was compared to obtain evidence of whether a transmission of HEV by coagulation factor concentrates could occur. METHODS: Archived samples from whole blood donors and patients who had received coagulation factor concentrates were investigated for the presence of anti-HEV IgG by ELISA...

BACKGROUND: Alloantibodies against human neutrophil antigens (HNA) are associated with a variety of clinical conditions. Over the past decade, the allelic and genotypic frequencies of the five HNA systems have been evaluated. Although the HNA system is less polymorphic than human leukocyte antigens (HLA), significant differences in the genotypic and allele frequencies still exist in different populations, even those living in close proximity. OBJECTIVES: To delineate HNA genotypic and allele frequencies to provide vital information on estimating the risk of HNA-associated diseases for our local population...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the impact of a dedicated cell salvage practitioner team on blood loss and allogeneic transfusion in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. BACKGROUND: Cell salvage reduces allogeneic transfusion in AAA surgery, but is commonly performed by the anaesthetic nurse. At our hospital, a dedicated patient blood management practitioner is present for all elective open AAA repairs. METHODS/MATERIALS: Data were collected on 171 AAA patients operated on at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford over a 3-year period, looking at the Patient Blood Management processes, including: blood loss, cell salvage, near-patient testing (thrombelastography) and transfusion rates of allogeneic blood products...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to identify the status of the blood supply in China during 2012-2014. BACKGROUND: China is a middle-income country, which contains more than 20% of the world population. Increasing the blood supply in China, along with increased healthcare coverage, involves many challenges. METHODS: A survey questionnaire regarding blood centre activities was sent to all of the blood centres in 32 provinces via the Internet...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the 'Resuscitation with Pre-HospItaL bLood products' trial (RePHILL) - a multi-centre randomised controlled trial of pre-hospital blood product (PHBP) administration vs standard care for traumatic haemorrhage. BACKGROUND: PHBP are increasingly used for pre-hospital trauma resuscitation despite a lack of robust evidence demonstrating superiority over crystalloids. Provision of PHBP carries additional logistical and regulatory implications, and requires a sustainable supply of universal blood components...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess current practices around obtaining consent for blood transfusion and provision of patient information in hospitals across the UK and identify areas for improvement. BACKGROUND: Recommendations from the Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs (SaBTO) (2011) state that valid consent should be obtained for blood transfusion and documented in clinical records. A standardised source of information should be available to patients...

REVIEW
A Thijsen, B Masser
This narrative review examines current research on risk factors, prevention methods and management strategies for vasovagal reactions (VVRs) that occur during or as a result of blood donation. VVRs are important to blood collection agencies (BCAs) as they negatively impact the number of completed collections, perceptions of the safety of blood donation and rates of donor return. There has been significant progress in understanding and preventing VVRs in blood donation in recent years, with a multitude of risk factors identified...

REVIEW
G Edgren, H Hjalgrim
With the development of several 'vein-to-vein' databases, which capture data on the entire donor-recipient continuum and link this data to health outcomes, there has been an increasing number of studies investigating the health effects of all aspects of the practice of transfusion medicine. The Scandinavian Donations and Transfusions (SCANDAT) database is one of several such databases, which includes all electronically available data on blood donors, donations and transfusions since the late 1960s in Sweden and the early 1980s in Denmark...

INTRODUCTION: The current management of severely injured patients includes damage control resuscitation strategies that minimise the use of crystalloids and emphasise earlier transfusion of red blood cells (RBC) to prevent coagulopathy. In 2012, London's air ambulance (LAA) became the first UK civilian pre-hospital service to routinely carry RBC to the trauma scene. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of pre-hospital RBC transfusion (phRTx) on overall blood product consumption...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to reduce donor tissue wastage. AIM: The aim of this study is to determine, in the case of the Abbott Architect rHTLV I/II assay, whether a signal/cut-off (S/CO) ratio higher than the manufacturer's recommendation of 1·0 could be applied to diagnose significant HTLV-1 seroreactivity. BACKGROUND: The detection of human T cell leukaemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) infection is primarily based on serology often utilising random access platforms...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims at identifying factors that disciplines consider when diagnosing and reporting transfusion-associated circulatory overload ('TACO'). BACKGROUND: TACO is a clinical diagnosis based mainly on subjective factors. Therefore, TACO could be an underreported complication of blood transfusion. METHODS: A survey was conducted among critical care physicians, anaesthesiologists, haematologists, transfusion medicine physicians and haemovigilance officers using case vignettes and a questionnaire...
