2018 № 8 Transfusion of blood: there are fewer recipients than it seems
It is known that in 2016 a total of 1,196,633 patients of Russian clinics received blood transfusion. The correctness of these data is questionable, since Table 3200 of Report Form 30 does not imply a summation of transfusion of different blood components. In 2 hospitals, the number of blood recipients receiving different transfu¬sion products was determined. It is established that about 25% of patients receive complex transfusion therapy with various kinds of blood components. Summation of data on the number of recipients of different transfusion products (Table 3200 of Form 30) leads to a distorted result, 30% higher than the actual number of patients who received a blood transfusion.
