Blood transfusions play an important role in medical care. Transfusions can save the lives of patients who need blood because of disease or injury. However, blood transfusions also have risks. For most patients who need blood, the potential benefits far outweigh the risks. This is especially true when healthcare staff are educated and trained to minimize risks. Well-trained staff: •Follow best practices to help prevent transfusion problems. •Recognize problems when they do occur. •Respond to problems quickly and effectively. This course is the first in a two-part series on transfusing blood and blood components.
