2017 № 4 The load on the blood service of medical establishments depending on the volume of platelet transfusions per days of week
Rate of the frequency of transfusions, goal-setting, and the stratification of 1519 doses of donor platelets on different days of the week have been evaluated in 16 clinics in the Republic of Bashkortostan. The proportion of transfused platelets in the different days of the week has been different at 5.1 times. The needs of clinics, from Sunday to Tuesday inclusive in platelets make up 17.2% of the total consumption and at 61,3% (p < 0,01) more often than on other days of the week are met by apheresis platelets. Maximum uniformity of platelet transfusion dates identified in Children Republic Clinical Hospital, which from Wednesday to Friday inclusive, transfuses 51.2% of platelets, whereas in other hospitals – 76,8% (p < 0,01). Increased frequency of platelet therapy beginning on Friday in small clinics can cause compliance audit for transfusion rules. The results may be useful for evaluating workflow of blood service clinics, improve the efficiency of clinical work.
2016 № 2 Management of blood donor: platelet pooling
Based on the cost analysis of different types of platelet concentrates (PC) assessed the effectiveness of the introduction of technology pooling of platelets in the Irkutsk Regional Blood Transfusion. Comparative cost analysis of different types of PC, the cost of consumables for the same therapeutic dose PC was performed. It was found that the content of pooled PC cells does not give in to apheresis. The introduction of technology pooling of platelets allows significantly (by 54,4% or more) to reduce the cost of issuing PC. To evaluate provision of PC in the regions it is advisable to consider the number of harvested PC through methods for preform at therapeutic doses.
