Factors affecting red blood cell storage age at the time of transfusion.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Clinical trials are investigating the potential benefit resulting from a reduced maximum storage interval for red blood cells (RBCs). The key drivers that determine RBC age at the time of issue vary among individual hospitals. Although progressive reduction in the maximum storage period of RBCs would be expected to result in smaller hospital inventories and reduced blood availability, the magnitude of the effect is unknown. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Data on current hospital blood...
