Abstract

Organ transplantation recipients present unusual challenges with regard to blood transfusion. Although this patient population requires a larger proportion of blood product resources, liberal transfusion of allogeneic blood products can lead to a plethora of complications. Recent trends suggest that efforts to minimize bleeding, conserve products, and target transfusion to specific deficits and needs are increasingly becoming the standard practice; these must all occur with optimization of graft function and preservation in mind. With newer monitoring modalities and factor concentrates, the approach toward transfusion and bleeding in organ transplantation has rapidly improved in recent years.
