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.

Enter a count of 1 for each single adult transfusion unit of platelets, ie each single sticker.

background   

This is different than the way it was done before. This is because what used to be called a "five pack" or 5 units of platelets is now identified by CBS as a SINGLE ADULT TRANSFUSION UNIT of platelets. Thus we will now refer to this as ONE UNIT of platelets.
