  • Slide 1
  • Blood Components
  • Slide 2
  • Blood Bags Single blood bag: Whole blood
  • Slide 3
  • Double bags: Packed red cells plasma
  • Slide 4
  • Triple bags: Backed cells Plasma platelets
  • Slide 5
  • Quarterly bags: Backed cells Plasma Platelets Plasma factors
  • Slide 6
  • Whole Blood (WB) Collected directly from donors into blood transfusion bag containing anticoagulant 500 ml transfusion bag is used (contains 63 ml of anticoagulant + 450 ml blood) Anticoagulant ratio is 1.4 ml:10ml blood (63ml / 450ml)
  • Slide 7
  • Whole Blood (WB) Consists of RBCs, WBCs, platelets and plasma (with anticoagulant). 1 unit increases Hb 1 g/dl & Hct 3% When is it used? Patients who are actively bleeding and lost > 25% of blood volume. Exchange transfusion
  • Slide 8
  • Blood Components Separating WB into components of blood is necessary to avoid wasting of units. Goals Decrease harmful effects of blood transfusion. Giving patients specific component needed. Allow a longer survival for components. More than one patient will use the unit.
  • Slide 9
  • What are the Blood Components? Packed Red Blood Cells (PRBCs) Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) Platelet Concentrates (PC) Cryoprecipitate (CRYO) Leukoreduced Red Blood Cells
  • Slide 10
  • Centrifugation Types There are two types of centrifugation Light/soft spin; (2000 rpm- 20 C ) Heavy spin; (3500 rpm- 20 C )
  • Slide 11
  • Centrifuged blood Buffy Coat (WBCs & Platelets) Red Blood Cells Plasma
  • Slide 12
  • PRBCs How to prepare (PRBCs)? RBCs have higher specific gravity than plasma, it moves to lower portion of the bag by centrifugation. Whole Blood :(Light spin): Two products: 1)PRBCs 2)Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
  • Slide 13
  • Whole Blood Unit After centrifugation WB separates into PR Plasma & PRBCs
  • Slide 14
  • A PRBC unit contains ~ 200 ml RBCs & 50 ml Plasma. HCT of the unit should be 80% One unit increases hematocrit 3% RBC units must by stored at 2-6C PRBC are indicated for: Patients with anemia Surgery Newborn exchange transfusion
  • Slide 15
  • Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) centrifuged using (heavy spin), this will produce: 1)Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) 2)Platelets Concentrate (PC) FFP is the fluid portion of blood that is separated and frozen at -18C within 8 hrs of WB donation. Contains all the coagulation factors, including FVIII (factor 8) & Fibrinogen.
  • Slide 16
  • Whole blood unit Centrifuge using LIGHT spin Express Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) into satellite bag Take PRP and centrifuge again now using HEAVY spin Express PPP into satellite bag & freeze at -18C Final products :PRBCs, Platelets concentrate & FFP
  • Slide 17
  • Slide 18
  • FFP Freeze/store it at - 18C for 1 year from collection date. - 70C for up to 8 years Cross match is not required, but should be ABO compatible.
  • Slide 19
  • Indications of FFP Liver disease Severe burns Provides coagulation factors for Bleeding Abnormal clotting due to massive transfusion Patients on warfarin who are bleeding Treatment of TTP Coagulation factors deficiency ATIII deficiency DIC when fibrinogen is
  • Slide 20
  • FFP
  • Slide 21
  • Platelets Concentrate (PC) How to prepare PC? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) centrifuged using (heavy spin), this will produce: 1)Platelets Poor Plasma (PPP) 2)Platelets concentrate (PC) PC are stored at room temperature on platelet agitator (prevent platelets clumping) PC stored for 5 days at 20-24C. Each unit should elevate the platelet count by 5000/L
  • Slide 22
  • P.C; Indications 1.To prevent bleeding due to thrombocytopenia or platelet dysfunction. 2. For patients undergoing an operation, if the platelets count < 20,000/l.
  • Slide 23
  • Platelet concentrate
  • Slide 24
  • Pooling Platelets 6-10 units transferred into one bag Expiration = 4 hours
  • Slide 25
  • Cryoprecipitate (Cryo.) Cryo-precipitated (Cryo.) or anti-hemophilic factor (AHF) is the precipitated protein portion that results after thawing FFP at cold. Contains von Willebrands Factor (vWF); (platelets adhesion factor). Fibrinogen 150 mg in each unit. Factor VIII About 80 IU in each unit.
  • Slide 26
  • Cryoprecipitate (Cryo.) How to prepare Cryo.? WB is centrifuged special heavy spin (3500 rpm at 4C for 11 min.) PRBCs Plasma store until frozen > -18C (FFP) FFP allowed to thaw at 4C overnight. Centrifuge plasma heavy spin to separate plasma from Cryo.. Express supernatant plasma & Cryo. will remain in bag.
  • Slide 27
  • what the supernatant plasma is called? The supernatant plasma is called cryoprecipitate reduced or plasma cryo. Good for Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP).
  • Slide 28
  • Cryo.. Indications Hemophilia-A von Willebrand Disease (vWD). Congenital or acquired fibrinogen defects (dysfibrinogenemia). Storage and Expiration of CRYO: Must be stored at -18C, preferably - 30C. Expires 1 year from original WB donation date, not from the date the Cryo., was prepared.
  • Slide 29
  • Special Procedures Aphaeresis APHERESIS, Greek pheresis = to take away ; involves the selective removal of blood constituents from blood donors or patients. Selective removal of a pathologic materials has a theoretical advantage over the removal of all plasma constituents. In most aphaeresis instruments, centrifugal force separates blood into components on the basis of differences in density.
  • Slide 30
  • Slide 31
  • Apheresis
  • Slide 32
  • Plateletsphaeresis To obtain platelets at least 3 10 11 platelets/unit from: Random volunteer donors (5 Random donors=1 apharesis donor) Patients family members Donors with matched HLA or platelet antigen phenotypes. -The most common platelets collection systems (Trima-right side & Baxter-left side)
  • Slide 33
  • Slide 34
  • Irradiation of Blood Components Cellular blood components are irradiated to destroy viable T- lymphocytes which may cause Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD). GVHD is a disease that results when immunocompetent, viable lymphocytes in donor blood engraft in an immunocompromised host, recognize the patient tissues as foreign and produce antibodies against patient tissues, primarily skin, liver and GI tract. The resulting disease has serious consequences including death. GVHD may be chronic or acute
  • Slide 35
  • Irradiation of Blood Components Patients at greatest risk are: severely immunosuppressed, immunocompromised, receive blood donated by relatives, or fetuses receiving intrauterine transfusions Irradiation inactivates lymphocytes, leaving platelets, RBCs and granulocytes relatively undamaged. Must be labeled "irradiated". Expiration date of Red Blood Cell donor unit changes to 28 days. May be transfused to "normal" patients if not used by intended recipient.
