Abstract

Errors in pretransfusion specimen collection, omission of appropriate transfusion filters, or co-administration of incompatible fluids with blood products could transform blood transfusion from a lifesaving measure into a potentially critical event. In this chapter, we will summarize key aspects of blood component administration, with an emphasis on processes and technologic advances that promise to improve the quality of patient care and patient safety.
