Recommendations on Patient Blood Management published


Last year, CEBaP screened ~18.000 references and included 145 studies to answer 17 PICO questions during the International Consensus Conference on Patient Blood Management in Frankfurt, Germany (ICC-PBM 2018). This initiative was organized and (co-)sponsored by an international consortium of scientific organizations in the field of blood transfusion, including the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB), the International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Transfusionsmedizin und Immunhämatologie (German Blood Transfusion Society [DGTI]), the Société Française de Transfusion Sanguine (French Blood Transfusion Society [SFTS]), the Società Italiana di Medicina Transfusionale e Immunoematologia (Italian Blood Transfusion Society [SIMTI]), and the European Blood Alliance (EBA).

In March 2019, the ICC-PBM 2018 conclusions were published in the high-impact journal JAMA. Ten evidence-based recommendations are now available on the definition, diagnosis and treatment of preoperative anaemia, the use of RBC transfusion triggers and the implementation of PBM programs.
