The transfusion process from sample collection through the basics of blood bank testing and cross-matching, and into transfusion administration will be covered, including valid consent and risk/benefits. The NHMRC clinical indications for transfusion of fresh blood products - red cells; plasma and platelets - will be discussed. Types of venous access and their management will be reviewed. Students will build on their knowledge throughout the unit.
