Catalog type History
Provenance From the National Blood Resource Education Program coordinated by NHLBI. "Autologous transfusion is the collection and reinfusion of the patient's own blood or blood components. Recently, the fear of transfusion-transmitted diseases from homologous blood transfusion--blood collected from volunteer donors other than the patient--has renewed interest in autologous blood transfusion. The risk of transmitting disease--such as the human immunodeficiency virus or hepatitis B or C--continues to fall, however, as additional donor screening and testing measures are implemented." The pamphlet goes on to discuss preoperative autologous blood donation, perioperative blood salvage, and acute normovolemic hemodilution.
