Blood transfusion standards and resources – Australia

There has been much effort to rationalise the use of blood products and ensure patient safety. The current Australian national standard is available here and perhaps serves as a useful guide for countries like Nepal, PNG and the other nations of the Pacific.

Our Pathology Service (Pathology North, NSW) has particular expertise in electronic blood release systems – see this reference for a recent update.

The National Blood Authority publishes 5 excellent Patient Blood Management Guidelines for clinicians.
