AABB Guide to Patient Blood Management

View

Patient blood management (PBM), although practiced for decades, has come of age as a mainstream practice within the past decade. The goal of this Guide to Patient Blood Management and Blood Utilization is to serve as a concise yet comprehensive resource by first explaining the various aspects of PBM. Then the content dives into the review, audit, and measurement of program efforts. The metrics of blood utilization have been spurred by development of sophisticated information technology systems and widespread use of electronic health records. Both new and long-standing PBM programs can benefit from this Guide, as its goal is to promote the journey from being a good PBM program to becoming a great one. Topics covered:

Avoidance of allogeneic transfusion

Options available pre-, intra-, and postoperatively

Guidance for blood utilization

Methods for reviewing transfusion practices

How to audit transfusion decisions

Use of audit results to improve patient care

AABB Guide to the Laboratory Evaluation

View

By Wen Lu, MD; Peter R. Pelletier, MD; Kathleen Puca, MD; Glenn Ramsey, MD; and NurJehan Quraishy, MD for the Transfusion Medicine Section Coordinating Committee

The evaluation and diagnosis of a suspected transfusion reaction is a matter of clinical judgment by a physician trained in adverse effects of transfusion. Negative testing results do not always exclude a reaction if there is strong suspicion that the patient’s symptoms are related to blood transfusion. The laboratory evaluation of these events is critical not only for the patient’s health, but also for corrective and preventive actions that are part of process improvement. Contents of this updated reference, the AABB Guide to the Laboratory Evaluation of Transfusion Reactions include step-by-step guidance for:

Hemolytic Transfusion Reactions

Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury

Transfusion-Associated Circulatory Overload

Allergic/Anaphylactic Reactions

Septic Transfusion Reactions

Posttransfusion Purpura

Iron Overload

Transfusion-Associated Graft-vs-Host-Disease

Includes an extremely useful Appendix summarizing common acute and delayed transfusion reactions with their associated primary symptoms, additional symptoms, usual timing of onset, initial laboratory evaluation, and confirmatory/supplemental evaluations.

Bundle: Standards for Perioperative Auto

The 10th edition of Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration (Perioperative Standards) contains requirements that address perioperative collection and preparation of red cell and non-red-cell components. Its goal is to maintain and enhance the quality and safety of perioperative autologous blood collection and administration and to provide a basis for the AABB Accreditation Program. It reflects the concerns and priorities of several different aspects of the discipline, including the input of recognized experts in the field and the best interests of their patients. It was developed in the context of the global drive for quality in health care and internationally recognized principles of quality management.

Significant changes to the 10th edition:

New Standard 1.7 requires that all laboratories have processes in place to perform risk assessments for all critical activities in the facility at defined intervals.
New Standard 3.8.6 requires that laboratories have processes in place to minimize the risk and impact of internal and external data breach.
Standard 5.2.2 has been expanded to allow medical director designees to develop policies, processes and procedures concerning collection and administration of components.
Guidance for Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration, 10th edition, includes verbatim requirements from the Perioperative Standards interspersed with guidance. Language from the Perioperative Standards is presented; when there is appropriate guidance for that standard, the guidance language follows the standard with the heading “Guidance.” This format allows the reader to see both the requirement and the associated guidance side by side.

Please note that there is no guidance for some standards. The Perioperative Standards Committee has chosen to focus Guidance for Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration on those issues that may require additional context and/or examples to assist in attaining compliance with the Standards.

A 34-year-old man fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit is on an artificial respirator for over a month. Could it be that his chance of getting off the respirator is not how much his nurses know, but rather how much they care? A 75-year-old woman is heroically saved by a major trauma center only to be discharged and fatally struck by a car while walking home from the hospital. Could a lack of compassion from the hospital staff have been a factor in her death? Compelling new research shows that health care is in the midst of a compassion crisis. But the pivotal question is this: Does compassion really matter? In Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence that Caring Makes a Difference, physician scientists Stephen Trzeciak and Anthony Mazzarelli uncover the eye-opening data that compassion could be a wonder drug for the 21st century. Now, for the first time ever, a rigorous review of the science - coupled with captivating stories from the front lines of medicine - demonstrates that human connection in health care matters in astonishing ways. Never before has all the evidence been synthesized together in one place. You will see compelling evidence that: - Compassion has vast benefits for patients across a wide variety of conditions - Missed opportunities for compassion can have devastating health effects - Compassion can help reverse the cost crisis in health care - Compassion can be an antidote for burnout among health care providers - 40 seconds of compassion can save a life After seeing all the evidence, the answer is crystal clear: Compassion matters...in not only meaningful but measurable ways.

Pneumatic tube delivery systems are an integral component of the contemporary day-to-day functioning of many blood banks and transfusion medicine services. In recent years, reliance on their speed has increased and the software used to operate them has become highly sophisticated. Adequate staffing at receiving stations is an increasing concern, as is the overall system workload. This Guide to Pneumatic Tube Delivery Systems details the “nuts and bolts” of system planning, operation, and maintenance for facilities considering a pneumatic delivery system, those needing to expand an existing system, or those wanting to increase efficiency of operations. Highlights include:

Spill prevention and management
Templates for validation protocol and worksheets.
Examining routes for environmental conditions hazardous to components.
Contingency planning for, and rehearsal of, alternative methods during system shutdowns.
Training of staff.
Current expectations and practice reflected in regulatory requirements.
This Guide will prove to be an invaluable resource for users who are looking ahead to future needs of their institutions.
