Autotransfusion Services

It’s common for patients to shed fairly large amounts of blood in revision and bilateral TKAs, THAs1, and spines2. In these cases, you can be fairly confident that blood salvage systems will collect enough blood to wash and return packed RBCs to the patient. For other procedures such as primary knees and hips, blood loss is far less predictable. As a result, autotransfusion processing set up might be set up when there aren’t enough blood cells to reinfuse. In other cases, you may need to have to give patients allogeneic blood when you anticipated they wouldn’t bleed.
