Preview

One consequence of our evolving understanding of the safety and efficacy of allogeneic blood transfusion is the appreciation of the patient’s own blood as a highly valuable and unique resource that should not be wasted and discarded in vain. Losing one’s own blood will expose patients to the perils of anaemia, and replacing it with donor blood opens the door to a host of unfavourable outcomes.
