Study shows that fresh blood and stored blood have the same degree of safety for transfusion

Premature babies with acute disease who received no fresh blood obtained better results than those who received the current standard treatment. It suggests that the study by researchers at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute in Canada.

The study contradicts earlier research suggesting that more fresh blood is safer and more effective than blood stored.

The study involved 377 aripi Randomized Trial babies weighing less than 1,250 grams who required red blood cell transfusion. Randomly, they received blood stored for a week or less, or received the standard practice used by blood banks.

The results showed no difference in outcome between the two groups. "Over the years, the onset of studies showing possible damage after use of stored blood pressure caused only by the adoption of fresh blood for transfusion," said lead researcher Dana Devine, the Canadian Blood Services.

According to the researchers, the study makes it clear that the standards currently in force are not risky for a highly vulnerable population of children born preterm than a policy and a system that would aim only transfusion of fresh blood.

The research involved six Canadian hospitals and was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
