1. Storage and handling of blood components – perspectives.

    Transfusion and Apheresis Science 51(2):103 (2014) PMID 25457749

    The storage and handling conditions of cellular blood components and plasma are often rigorous, which is causing extensive discard of components that may be of acceptable quality as the rules for “out of optimal storage conditions” seem to be based more on tradition than scientific investigation...

  3. Effects of the Sangvia blood collection system on patients undergoing elective hip surgery.

    Transfusion and Apheresis Science 51(2):91 (2014) PMID 25151098

    We have conducted a randomized controlled study where 164 patients were randomized to receive autologous salvaged blood collected by Sangvia™ Blood Salvage System or allogeneic red cell concentrates if transfusion was indicated by clinical judgement. The study was powered to detect if transfusio...
  4. Bacterial contamination of blood components: Norwegian strategies in identifying donors with higher risk of inducing septic transfusion reactions in recipients

    Transfusion and Apheresis Science 51(2):97 (2014) PMID 25242310

    Bacterial contamination of blood and its cellular components remains the most common microbiological cause of transfusion associated morbidity and mortality, even in developed countries. This yet unresolved complication is seen more often in platelet transfusions, as platelet concentra...

    Nature 513(7518):409 (2014) PMID 25230663 PMCID PMC4170574

    We sequenced the genomes of a ∼7,000-year-old farmer from Germany and eight ∼8,000-year-old hunter-gatherers from Luxembourg and Sweden. We analysed these and other ancient genomes with 2,345 contemporary humans to show that most present-day Europeans derive from at least three highly differenti...

  12. Whole blood: the future of traumatic hemorrhagic shock resuscitation.

    Shock 41 Suppl 1:62 (2014) PMID 24662782

    Toward the end of World War I and during World War II, whole-blood transfusions were the primary agent in the treatment of military traumatic hemorrhage. However, after World War II, the fractionation of whole blood into its components became widely accepted and replaced whole-blood transfusion ...

  16. Low titer group O whole blood in emergency situations.

    Shock 41 Suppl 1:70 (2014) PMID 24569505

    In past and ongoing military conflicts, the use of whole blood (WB) as a resuscitative product to treat trauma-induced shock and coagulopathy has been widely accepted as an alternative when availability of a balanced component-based transfusion strategy is restricted or lacking. In previous mili...

    Shock 41 Suppl 1:51 (2014) PMID 24662779

    This review is a synopsis of the decisions that shaped global policy on platelet (PLT) storage temperature and a focused appraisal of the literature on which those discussions were based. We hypothesize that choices were centered on optimization of preventive PLT transfusion strategies, possibly...
