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.


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.
