Red cell transfusion is 1 of the 5 "overused" procedures in medicine per the American Medical Association and The Joint Commission.
The cost of transfusing one unit of red cells is almost $1200. Each additional unit is associated with $1480 in increased hospital costs.
Application of patient blood management principles and practices has led to up to 80% reduction in transfusions.
It is estimated that nearly one-third of the world’s population suffers from anemia. The prevalence in North American is even higher—approaching 40%. Iron-deficiency is the most common cause.
