Transfusion Medicine, or Blood Banking, is a branch of medicine that deals with the collection, testing, storage, and transfusion of blood and blood products. It ensures that safe and compatible blood is available for patients who require transfusions.
Blood typing is crucial to determine a person's blood group (A, B, AB, O) and Rh factor (positive or negative). This information is vital to ensure that donated blood is compatible with the recipient's blood type, reducing the risk of transfusion reactions.
Donated blood undergoes a rigorous screening process. This includes testing for infectious diseases such as HIV, hepatitis, syphilis, and other pathogens. Donors are also screened for risk factors that could affect the safety of the donated blood.
Blood can be separated into various components, including red blood cells (used for anemia and surgeries), plasma (for clotting factors and plasma proteins), platelets (for clotting), and cryoprecipitate (for specific clotting factors). This allows for targeted transfusions based on a patient's needs.
Most healthy individuals are eligible to donate blood. There are specific criteria, such as age, weight, and health status, that blood banks follow. Additionally, there may be temporary restrictions based on recent travel, medical conditions, or certain medications.
