15 November 2016 (Tuesday) - TACO
The Blood Bank Guy presented a podcast on TACO (Transfusion associated circulatory overload)
“TACO is a very serious disease. TACO is responsible for the second-most number of deaths from transfusion every year in the United States (and is actually #1 in countries with active hemovigilance programs such as the United Kingdom). It’s not something to mess around with, but far too many clinicians and blood bankers fail to give it the respect it deserves”.
