The Israeli Trigger for Blood Transfusions in the ICU

Anemia is a common problem in critically ill patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs). The etiology is multifactorial and includes sepsis, overt or occult blood loss (including frequent blood sampling), decreased production of endogenous erythropoietin, and immune-associated functional iron deficiency. In the only large randomized trial addressing the issue ...

Phase N/A

Use of Pediatric Size Phlebotomy Tubes in Adult Critically Ill Patients to Reduce Red Blood Cell Transfusions

This study will evaluate the hypothesis that the use of pediatric size phlebotomy tubes reduces RBC transfusions in adult ICU patients compared with the use of adult size tubes.

Phase N/A

Improving White Blood Cell Collection From Healthy Donors

Bacterial and fungal infections in neutropenic patients or in patients with inherited disorders of neutrophil function continue to cause substantial morbidity and mortality. In particular, fungal infections are an increasingly important cause of death in patients receiving aggressive chemotherapy, in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), in patients with ...

HEMOglobin Transfusion Threshold in Traumatic Brain Injury OptimizatioN: The HEMOTION Trial

Most trauma deaths are related to traumatic brain injury (TBI). Although the management of patients has improved, mortality remains unacceptably high, and half of survivors of moderate and severe TBI are left with major functional impairment. Current management guidelines are based on limited evidence and practice is highly variable. Most ...

Phase N/A

Study on Patient Blood Management in Haematological Patients

This study is set up as a first step of implementing patient blood management (PBM) in this hospital. PBM is an evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach to optimizing the care of patients who might need transfusion. Not only in pre/per/postoperative setting but also in haematology PBM guidelines can be implemented. Examples are: ...

Phase N/A

Rejuvenated RBC and VO2 Max in Healthy Subjects

VISIT A (Day 0 - Screening) Written informed consent will be obtained from subjects who respond to an IRB-approved advertisement/flyer and fulfill eligibility requirements. The following video will help explain the study: vimeo.com/167291799. Individuals who respond to an IRB approved advertisement/flyer (uploaded to eIRB) will be given information about the ...

Phase

MRI Screening for Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) Who Have Received Multiple Red Blood Cell Transfusions

A known risk of red blood cell transfusions is that it puts excess iron into the patient's body. Researchers are continually seeking the most effective method of measuring iron concentration. The purpose of this study is to determine how much iron has been deposited in a patient's heart and liver ...

Phase N/A

R-FACT Study:Risk Factors for Alloimmunization After Red Blood Cell Transfusions

Introduction: Individuals exposed to red blood cell (RBC) alloantigens through transfusion, pregnancy, or transplantation may produce antibodies against the alloantigens expressed by RBCs. Although the incidence of these events is debated and ranges between percentages of 1-6% in single transfused patients and up to 30 % in poly-transfused patients (e.g. ...

Phase N/A

Irradiated Blood Versus Non Irradiated Blood Transfusions in Craniosynostosis Repair

Patients between the ages of 2 to 6 months of age and undergo a sagittal synostosis repair will split into two groups to participate in a prospective pilot study. The purpose of this study is to examine the extracellular potassium levels in patients who receive irradiated blood versus non-irradiated blood. ...
