Blood transfusion is the process of transferring blood or blood-based products from one person into the circulatory system of another. Blood transfusions can be life-saving in some situations, such as massive blood loss due to trauma, or can be used to replace blood lost during surgery.
Blood transfusions can be grouped into two main types depending on their source:
- Homologous transfusions, or transfusions using the stored blood of others. These are often called Allogeneic instead of homologous.
- Autologous transfusions, or transfusions using the patient’s own stored blood.
Donor units of blood must be kept refrigerated to prevent bacterial growth and to slow cellular metabolism. The transfusion must begin within 30 minutes after the unit has been taken out of controlled storage.
Blood can only be administered intravenously. It therefore requires the insertion of a cannula of suitable caliber.
