Cardiothoracic surgery patients have a high risk for hemorrhage and occasionally require massive transfusions, though most patients require 0 to 3 units of red blood cells (RBCs). Patient blood management models commonly rely on maximum surgical blood order schedules to avoid excessive blood waste, but a more personalized prediction on the risk of surgical hemorrhage and blood use would be useful to help conserve blood resources.

Understanding which patients with COVID-19 benefit the most from COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP) may help determine how convalescent plasma may be used during future pandemics. As reported in JAMA Network Open, researchers identified patient profiles to determine who will benefit most from CCP. [Read More]
