The Fresh Whole Blood Transfusion Set contains everything needed to test for ABO/Rh compatibility and perform a fresh whole blood transfusion in a compact sealed package and was developed with extensive research and feedback from the Armed Services Blood Program Office.
The transfusion of fresh whole blood is the best option for management of casualties with hemorrhagic shock. Blood transfusions have been used successfully in military conflicts and other austere conditions to resuscitate trauma patients suffering from shock due to hemorrhage.
This self contained set is an affordable and sensible solution for training and equipping organizations required to collect and transfuse fresh whole blood.
NOTE: Only personnel trained in blood collection, transfusion, and management of transfusion reactions should use this set.
