Abstract: These results suggest that improvement in blood transfusion policy in elderly patients undergoing cardiac surgery requires elimination of preoperative anemia, careful attention to surgical hemostasis, and FFP use.

“…These findings provide strong support for the idea that reducing MRT can contribute substantially to reductions in overall demand on blood products. The large, multisite nature of our study, combined with our use of an MRT threshold similar to that in previous work, [3,28] suggests that our results can be generalized to many medical centers. In order to help predict and manage patients at higher risk of MRT, we analyzed MRT risk factors in patients undergoing different types of cardiac surgery.…”

“…Therefore MRT was defined as transfusion involving at least 4 units, similar to thresholds in previous reports. [3,28] Based on this threshold, 1691 (21%) patients in our study received MRT (6.77 ± 4.78 units per person), which accounted for 70% of all units of allogeneic RBCs transfused in our study population. The remaining 6547 patients (79%) received the remaining 30% of the total units (0.76 ± 1.13 units per person; Fig.…”
