Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services, 27th edition
Effective Date: May 1, 2011

New!

The 27th edition of Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services details the latest standards of practice in blood banking and transfusion medicine. As in the past, a quality management system is the framework of the standards, with each of the 10 chapter headings representing one of the 10 Quality System Essentials. Significant changes: A new (previously interim) standard requires the use of FDA-approved or FDA-deemed-equivalent bacteria detection methods. new requirements ensure that users follow manufacturers instructions with certain apheresis equipment when said instructions are more stringent than standards. Standards for the preparation and issue of tissues and derivatives have been separated from those for blood and components, for clarity. Requirements for new product Cryoprecipitated AHF after thawing have been added to Reference Standard 5.1.8A, Requirements for Storage, Transport and Expiration. The phrase transfusion transmitted has been replaced with the more inclusive term transmissible for clarity.

Youve heard of quality tools, but if countless presentations and articles have left you still unsure about how to use them in your organizational setting or why you should, this book is for you. Beginning with a brief overview of 11 easy-touse quality tools, this collection of 13 case studies uses fictional scenarios to demonstrate how the tools can be used in real settings specific to blood banking and transfusion service environments. Tools described in the first section require no special knowledge or equipment: brainstorming, check sheets, run charts, control charts, failure mode effects analysis, fishbone diagrams, force field analysis, pareto charts, plan-do-checkact, process mapping and the five whys. The cases that demonstrate them cover four general topic areas: administrative issues, operations, donor issues and customer service. Case topics: Staffing levels, training methods and competency documentation. Responsibility for tissue services in a transfusion service. Patient identification issues. Receipt of blood components in the laboratory. Outdated blood components. Quality control documentation. Donor deferrals. Storage, transport and delivery of components. By pairing a just-the-essentials introduction to tools with in-depth examples, this direct, readily accessible presentation sends you into your own workplace equipped with a quality improvement toolkit to use with confidence according to the situation.

Decision Making in Transfusion Medicine

New!

By Eleftherios C. Vamvakas, MD, PhD, MPH

This timely book examines the policy and clinical decisions being made today in the name of blood safety, often resulting in radical changes in transfusion medicine practice. Although decision making in transfusion medicine is based on a wider range of inputs than solely the best research evidence, the orientation of this book remains evidence-based. In this capacity, the book is intended to serve one of the recurring principles enunciated by the FDAthat decision making must be transparent. The book discusses both the evidence supporting and the hotly debated policy alternatives proposed for avoiding the risks of allogeneic blood transfusion.

Guidelines for Patient Blood Management and Blood Utilization


Developed for the Clinical Transfusion Medicine Committee and the Transfusion Medicine Section Coordinating Committee by Joanne Becker, MD, and Beth Shaz, MD

With patient safety and optimal outcomes as the goal, blood management and utilization concepts reach across diverse areas of transfusion medicine, from physician education and auditing to surgical techniques and topical hemostatics, to include all aspects of the transfusion decision-making process. Representing a major revision of the Guidelines for Blood utilization Review (AABB, 2001), this Guideline assists facilities in developing strategies that provide for the appropriate use of blood and the use of alternatives that help to reduce or avoid the need for allogeneic blood transfusion. A multidisciplinary approach is advocated that includes the use of blood component guidelines, pharmaceutical preparations to minimize blood loss, blood conservation methods and blood utilization review practices. Some highlights include: The transfusion review process, including thresholds and assessments. nonsurgical as well as preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative strategies. The blood utilization review process, including the development of facility-specific guidelines and quality improvement. Auditing of blood utilization, including criteria for a wide range of components and situations.
(AABB, 2011, soft cover, 52 pages, ISBN 978-1-56395-326-2)

PATIEnT BLOOD MAnAGEMEnT

Options for Better Patient Care


Published jointly by aabb and the Society for the advancement of blood management (Sabm), Blood Management: Options for Better Patient Care is an in-depth exploration of strategies for appropriately using or avoiding transfusion therapy. offering both a broad theoretical foundation for blood management concepts and practical information on implementing the techniques, this book emphasizes the value of combining multiple strategies to achieve the best patient outcomes. the source material this text shares with Perioperative Blood Management: A Physicians Handbook (also published by aabb and Sabm) is matched by an equal amount of additional material, including quality assurance, business plan development (including a sample plan) and pediatric surgery, to name a few. this book will prove to be an essential and accessible reference for the surgical team, including surgeons, anesthesiologists, perfusionists, transfusion specialists, clinicians and nurses. Topics: Program development, economics and quality systems. transfusion decision making. Preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative techniques. Pretransfusion testing and point-of-care testing. Preoperative optimization, blood sequestration and ancillary techniques. topical hemostatics and fibrin sealants. Special settings, such as cancer and liver, obstetric, pediatric and cardiac surgery.

although the establishment of hospital committees to review blood usage is not a new concept, it has become increasingly important for transfusion committees to assume a far greater role in blood management. evolving regulations for blood utilization monitoring and an increased emphasis on patient safety make in-house transfusion committees essential. this publication provides current information on the committees composition, function and implementation and will be useful both for facilities with established transfusion committees and for those seeking to create one. Several helpful forms are included on the Cd-Rom for downloading and customizing. Topics: Justification for a dedicated transfusion committee. Committee organization and function. the impact of accrediting organizations. Relationships with blood centers. managing conflicts of interest within the committee. Quality tools for the transfusion committee. blood management and the transfusion committee. implementing and managing a successful committee.

Serologic Problem-Solving:
A Systematic Approach for Improved Practice
Edited by Sally V. Rudmann, PhD

Guidelines for Massive Transfusion

Developed for the Scientific Section Coordinating Committee by Arthur Bracey, MD

Solving serologic problems and teaching others how to solve these problems can present a challenge to even the most experienced technologists. Those so-called expert immunohematologic problem-solvers may never have had the opportunity to step back and evaluate how they approach a problem and the steps they take to resolve it. This book reviews the problemsolving process, which is applied to many types of serologic problems and is emphasized through case studies. Highlights include resolution of ABO and Rh typing discrepancies, antibody identification, application of patient clinical information to solve a problem and more.
(AABB Press, 2005, soft cover, 183 pages, ISBN 1-56395-209-2)

The safety and adequacy of blood used in massive transfusion presents a challenge for transfusion services. The Guideline addresses how a transfusion service can play an important role by designing and implementing systems to effectively manage patients with massive transfusion. The first part of this Guideline, Medical Considerations, addresses hemotherapy management options for patients receiving massive transfusion. These options take into account available studies and expert position statements on the subject. The second part, Laboratory Considerations, discusses issues surrounding the design and implementation of a massive transfusion protocol.

Components
Blood Component Visual Inspection Guide
A critical part of safe blood administration is the visual inspection of units and segments to distinguish between normal and abnormal components before transfusion. This Guide is intended as a vital tool for any individual who handles blood units in the blood center, component preparation or testing laboratory, or hospital. Originally developed by a team at the American Red Cross, the Guide has been endorsed and produced by AABB. It is full of color photographs that depict normal and abnormal appearances of whole blood, red cells, platelets, plasma and cryoprecipitate. It also provides definitions and causes of numerous conditions that may negatively affect blood components. Features: 8.5" x 11" size ensures large images for side-by-side comparison to actual units. Spiral binding lets the Guide lie flat while pages are flipped. Photos have been taken by professional photographers. Pages are laminated to withstand washing with a 10% bleach solution.

Complications
TRALI:
Mechanisms, Management, and Prevention
Edited by Steven H. Kleinman, MD, and Mark A. Popovsky, MD

Pathogen Inactivation:

The Penultimate Paradigm Shift


Edited by James P. AuBuchon, MD, and Christopher V. Prowse, MA, DPhil, FRCPath

AABB brings you the first comprehensive reference on transfusion-related lung injury (TRALI), collecting all the latest research in one timely volume. This accessible tool provides both an overview and a detailed picture of the relevant clinical, laboratory, pathophysiologic and donor-related issues posed by TRALI. Intended to provide transfusion medicine professionals, transfusing clinicians and other staff with an up-to-date reference guide, each chapter has been written by a recognized authority in the field, summarizing existing knowledge as well as highlighting areas of ongoing investigation. Topics: Differential diagnosis, incidence, pathophysiology and treatment. Concerns in the ICu. Donor management and laboratory evaluation. HLA and granulocyte antibody testing. Experience in the uK. Risk reduction.
(AABB Press, 2008, soft cover, 196 pages, ISBN 978-1-56395-267-8)

In this imperfect world, pathogen inactivation has been sought as a way to achieve a zero-risk blood supply. Although no group of techniques can be relied upon as a true panacea, pathogen inactivation is a bold leap in a positive direction. With the assumption of remarkably low risk, albeit at a higher cost, these techniques hold promise for addressing not only the known safety concerns, including bacterial contamination, but also the next new virus for which we are unprepared. This comprehensive and timely volume presents the basic concepts, reviews the research performed to date and provides practical implementation advice from an international panel of early adopters. Topics addressed include: The rationale for pathogen inactivation. The challenges posed by some targets of inactivation. Assessing the toxic effects. Methods and considerations for red cells, platelets and plasma. Practical experience from several European sites. Regulations and implementation from both north American and European perspectives. This text will be of interest to those who are already using pathogen inactivation techniques (to compare and refine their operations), practitioners who are considering pathogen inactivation for their facilities in the near future (to identify aspects for consideration), and those who just want to be more knowledgeable about it (to be ready when asked to step up).

Guidelines for the Laboratory Evaluation of Transfusion Reactions


Developed for the Scientific Section Coordinating Committee by Robertson Davenport, MD

This Data Card is a handy reference that folds down to a 4 6 size and can easily fit in your lab or suit coat pocket. Laminated for durability, the card features information used for small-volume transfusions, formulas and calculations to determine volume of blood, general infectious risks of transfusion and special considerations in pediatric patients.
(AABB, 2009, ISBN 978-1-56395-303-3)

While infectious transfusion complications are often the focus of patients, physicians, blood transfusion professionals and regulatory agencies, nonviral and immunologically based complications are the most prevalent risks for a transfusion recipient. The diagnosis and evaluation of any transfusion reaction is a matter of clinical judgment by a physician trained in the adverse effects of transfusion. negative testing results should not be interpreted as definitely excluding a transfusion reaction if there is a strong clinical suspicion that the patients symptoms are related to blood transfusion. The laboratory evaluation of suspected transfusion reactions is critical not only to the health and well-being of the patient but also to the process of improvement through corrective and preventive actions.

Outline of regulatory and accreditation requirements. Overview of blood components. Principles of donor selection. Collection of blood. Special procedures.

Anemia in prospective blood donors may indicate an underlying disease, may result in an ineffective blood product and may cause harm to the recipient. Thus, the measurement of donor hemoglobin as a means of determining donor eligibility is of paramount importance. This Guideline identifies several of the methods currently in use for determining hemoglobin levels. The advantages, disadvantages, technical aspects and quality assurance considerations of each method are described so that collection personnel can choose a particular method that ensures protection of the donor and a safe and effective product for the recipient.
