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

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

Red Blood Cell Transfusion Thresholds and QOL in MDS

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are bone marrow malignancies characterized by poor bone marrow function that may progress to acute myeloid leukemia. Many patients become red blood cell transfusion-dependent. Transfusion dependence is associated with inferior quality of life (QOL). However, the relationship between the degree of anemia and QOL is less clear. ...

PICU Transfusion Study: Harmful Effects of Red Blood Cell Transfusions

Transfusions of red blood cells (RBCs) stored for longer durations are associated with adverse effects in hospitalized patients. During storage, RBCs undergo cumulative changes that reduce their survival in vivo, and have been associated with impairment in oxygen transport and adverse outcomes. Transfusion of older RBCs results in increased NTBI ...

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

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

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

Insufficient Cellular Oxygen in ICU Patients With Anaemia

Evidence is increasing that in some cases a Hb trigger of 7-8g/dl may be too low and te question arises whether an individualized red cell transfusion strategy may benefit critically ill patients. New studies have shown the potential of protoporphyrin IX-triple state lifetime technique to measure mitochondrial oxygenation tension (mitoPO2) ...
