Blood transfusion medicine

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Blood transfusions (feline and canine) are not everyday practice in our veterinary clinics, so it is good to have a quick reference to the important features when a blood transfusion is required.  This lecture will guide you on the collection process, blood typing and cross matching, what is the best product to administer to your patient, how to prepare to administer the product and the monitoring that is required during the transfusion.  Reactions can come in varying degrees, how to deal with these reactions promptly can mean life or death, how to pick up on these reactions and different treatment options will also be addressed.

**Nurse Congress Proceedings will be available on a USB in your congress bag
