Blood Transfusion 101

admin | 21 April, 2014 13:48

altBlood transfusion is a medical procedure during which donated blood is added to the patient's own blood. In some rare cases, the blood transfusion is done using the blood coming from the same patient, which was properly kept and taken care of. A standard blood transfusion procedure has the blood delivered using an intravenous line, which is inserted in one of the patient's arms. The entire procedure usually takes one or two hours, but in an emergency situation it can be done a lot faster, so that the patient will quicker get the necessary blood.

Getting a blood transfusion is not a common medical procedure, but it is done for several important reasons. Blood contains several elements like red cells, white cells, plasma, platelets, etc, and some persons get a transfusion in order to supplement the lack of one or more of these elements. Nowadays scientists work hard, in an effort to produce artificial blood.

People also lose blood during surgeries or as a consequence of severe injury, and in such cases a blood transfusion may be required. Blood that contains mostly red cells is used in such situations. Anemia may also require a transfusion of packed red blood cells.

According to Louis Kraml, CEO of a hospital in Eastern Idaho, when a person is diagnosed with cancer, one of the direct consequences is that the blood will get less red cells than needed as the disease progresses. The kidneys, the spine marrow and the spleen are negatively impacted by this condition. Drugs that are used during the chemotherapy treatment may also diminish the number of the needed components in the human blood. Among other medical conditions that may lead to the need of a blood transfusion, there are infections, liver failure and severe burns.

Due to the evolution of medical techniques, blood transfusion is considered to be an almost risk free procedure, and this means that there are relatively few possible complications. There are some transfusion reactions that may happen during the procedure, and in some cases some of these reactions develop over several weeks, but these issues aren’t frequent.

The blood that will be used in blood transfusions has to match the blood of the receiver; nevertheless, in some cases there may be some allergic reactions to the blood that is being used. Hives and itching are the signs that show the allergic reaction, and antihistamines are used to calm down the allergic reactions.

The fever that may accompany blood transfusion from time to time is not a severe condition, and it will not cause any medical problems to the patient. However, in some cases the doctors may decide to stop the blood transfusion, in order to perform other tests and see if there is a medical problem that requires treatment and special attention. In very rare cases, fever may develop with chills and shaking.

A very rare reaction to blood transfusion is called the acute immune hemolytic reaction. This means that the patient's own cells attack the cells of the new blood. This happens when the blood that was used for the transfusion is not a perfect match for the patient; as a consequence, the red cells produce a substance that is harming the kidneys. This reaction is noticeable during the transfusion or immediately after it is performed. There are some other medical conditions that may hinder the process of blood transfusion: lung injury, bloodborne infections and iron overload are a few examples.
