optimizing standards for transfusion of red blood cell concentrate19

An important approach to the goal of reducing number of transfusions, is to give each patient the most exact hemoglobin (Hb) dosage which is needed to achieve the wanted post-transfusion Hb.

The rule of thumb used in the clinical practice:
  • 1 unit of red blood cells transfused to an adult increases hemoglobin concentration with 1 g/dl
Unfortunately, the Hb content of the units does not represent a homogeneity.

The blood volumes of the patients vary significantly

  • Two different concepts are proposed to overcome this challenges:
  • Standardize the units.
  • Adjust the Hb dose according to the patient’s blood volume; Hemoglobin dosing.
standarization of the units

The term “unit” is derived from the time when “one unit of whole blood” referred to the source, i.e. a whole blood donation

standardization of the red cell product
Standardization of the red cell product
  • The advantage of a standardized red cell product lies in the greater degree of predictability of clinical outcome for any predefined recipient.
  • This could result in an alteration in physician’s prescribing practices, avoiding over-transfusion, especially in low volume recipients.
  • The current situation where red cell products are prescribed in non-standard 'units' is outdated and unscientific.

Sweeney JD: Standardization of the red cell product.

Transfus Apher Sci 2006, 34(2):213-218.

hemoglobin dosing
Hemoglobin dosing

As high as a 50-percent difference in Hb content can be encountered between two units (40-60g)

Indicating that RBC transfusions should be based on Hb content of the products instead of units.

Gorlin J, Cable R: What is a unit?Transfusion 2000, 40:263-265.

Matching the Hb dose to the individual needs of the patients reduced the total usage of red cell concentrates by approximately 30 % in a study from Turkey.
  • Calculating the patients’ total need of Hb to achieve the targeted Hb made this possibly.
  • The total amount of transfused RBCc was reduced to 72 from the original 104 units required (ca 30%).
  • The success rate was closely linked to patients’ weight; increased weight correlated with failure to comply with the goal.

pilot study30
Pilot study

Hemodynamically stable patients needing “pop-up” transfusions

Measure hemoglobin content in red cell concentrates

Measure height and weight of patients -> calculate blood volume

Record pre- and post transfusion hemoglobin concentration


To evaluate feasibility (practicability) of such procedures

To evaluate if there is correlation between hemoglobin transfused and hemoglobin increment in patients – per litre of estimated blood volume

body surface bsa
Body surface (BSA)

Body surface was calculated by method described by DuBois

BSA (m2) = Weight (kg)0.425 x Height (cm)0.725 x 0.007184

blood volume alternative bv
Blood volume – alternative (BV)


BSA x3.29-1.229

50 patients were included in the study
  • Total number of 52 transfusions episodes: -27 for women, 25 for men
  • Videre resultater kan ikke legges ut pga rettigheter til artikkel under vurdering.
  • Det var signifikant samnmenheng mellom hb dose gitt og hb stigning korrigert for kroppsvolum. Dette gir grunnlag for videre arbeid.


Hemoglobin measurements were not causing a lot of extra work

In the laboratory: Sterile docking of sample bag; transfer to test tube, hemoglobin measurement


By just measuring the weight of each unit, correlation and calculation of the actually Hb content in each unit can easily be done.

Allow the blood banks to use high-Hb-content units rationally by using an in-house blood-banking software.
  • Adopting a policy of transfusing RBC in single-unit, instead of the standard two units.
  • Alter the physicians prescribing practice and stimulate to increased cooperation with the blood bank.
  • Avoiding potential both over-transfusion (in low weight patient) and under-transfusion (in high weight patient).
  • Potential of reducing iron overload for patients depending on multiple transfusions.

take home message
Take home message
  • Hemoglobin content in the units show great variability
  • Blood volume in patients vary as well
  • A hemoglobin increment lower than expectant does not necessary indicate active loss (bleeding, hemolytic reaction, etc.)
  • Future aspects of more standardized procedures.
hva skal vi gj re
Hva skal vi gjøre?
  • Tenke oss om
  • Samtale med kliniske leger (og pasienter?)
  • Gjennomføre en større studie med samme design?
  • Ny, randomisert studie: Tilfeldige SAG mot utvalgte SAG?
  • Hvem vil være med?
  • Platedose har neppe betydning for utfall hos pasienten
  • Vi venter i spenning på kunnskap om forebyggende versus terapeutiske trombocyttransfusjoner
  • Erytrocyttransfusjoner basert på “enhetstanken” gir vilkårlige konsekvenser for pasientene, på en eller annen måte må vi forbedre praksis: Til beste for pasient og blodbeholdning
