Abstract

As with any transfusion, the risks must be weighed against the benefits for each individual patient prior to transfusion. Transfusion should not be withheld from the patient with an urgent, life-threatening clinical need on the basis of serologic test results. If incompatible blood must be transfused, it is important for clinical care staff and laboratory staff to communicate frequently to determine which RBC units should be selected for transfusion, when the transfusion will be administered, and how the patient will be monitored.
