2017 № 10 Benchmarking of blood transfusion in regions of the Russian Federation
Blood transfusion statistics in Russia has been evaluated. In 2016 about 1.2 million patients of Russian clinics received more than 3.2 million transfusions of blood and its components in a total volume of about 1 million liters. About 0.5% of Russian doctors certified in the specialty «Transfusiology». The practice of transfusion of blood components in the RF subjects is very variable. The degree of heterogeneity of the clinical transfusion has been determined: the decile coefficient of some indexes in the regions of Russia in 2016 amounted to: transfusionists provision – 5.31; the number of recipients of blood on 1 transfusionist – 4.91; the part of transfusionists among doctors – 3.70; the part of recipients of blood among the population – 3.04, the volume of blood transfusion for 1 recipient 1–2.43; the volume of 1 blood transfusion – 2.29; the number of blood transfusions for 1 patient – 1.74. It seems appropriate for further statistics of clinical transfusion evaluation: the term «transfusion» replaced by the term «unit»; to evaluate the practice of transfusion of different blood components separately
2013 № 12 Pecularities of National Rules of blood transfusion (National medical and surgical center after N.I.Pirogov, Moscow, Russia)
There has been evaluated a correspondance of Rules on usage of donor blood in clinic needs and/or its components with International standards, experience of other developed countries and Russian health care practice. It has been shown that Rules lack information on reaching national consensus opinion, the data on level of conclusiveness of several Rules with indication of publication source (as it is conducted in other developed countries). There has been noted a necessity in completing a serious correction of the Rules.
