Transfusion Guidelines

  • Use transfusion codes once for each separate day that a transfusion happens.
  • For each such day, also code the number of units transfused as the Px Count
  • Definition of a single unit:
    • A single unit is what the blood bank (Canadian Blood Services) says it is. A single unit is accompanied by a single, unique sticker that is put by nursing on the Blood Products Administration Record in hospital charts.
    • So, the number of units you record should equal the number of stickers on the record.
