Combined. Whether or not this staggering statistic is different in primary care is not known. Therefore, healthcare professionals provide a huge resource for the practitioner facing the potential or actual patient. Blood science in human disease There are many ways to classify human disease. One is to consider three broad areas of pathology: cancer, connective tissue disease (such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and their allied conditions) and cardiovascular disease (principally heart attack and stroke, to include their risk factors of diabetes and hyperlipidaemia).
Problems may occur perhaps days after the transfusion, and include renal failure and jaundice, the latter being an indication of destruction of red cells. Post-transfusion purpura (bruising) is characterized by a severe thrombocytopenia (low platelets, which can last from 2 weeks to 2 months) and is caused by antibodies to molecules on the surface of platelets. If heavily haemorrhaging, then the transfusion of platelets may be required. Repercussions Naturally, there are many steps designed to prevent a transfusion error, such as the use of laser bar-coding so the sample can be traced from the requesting blood sample all the way back to the patient.
Its objective has changed over the years, from being a crude instrument to maintain haemoglobin at a certain level, to a therapy that saves lives. Additional changes have been the realization that a blood transfusion is far from a simple and troublefree treatment, and that it can promote damage, possibly permanently, to the health of the recipient. A further development has been the provision of blood products such as platelets, albumin and coagulation factors, provided by the National Health Service (NHS) Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) service (formerly the National Blood Transfusion Service).
