n the operating room to run the heart-lung bypass machine. And, he adds, many operations are considered to be low risk for blood loss, in which case the cell saver is unnecessary. But he advocates wider use of recycled blood.

"In any patient where you expect to give one unit of red blood cells or more, it's cost-effective and beneficial to recycle," he says.

Patients who lose blood may also need platelets and plasma, which they receive regardless of whether they receive their own blood or blood from a bank.

Frank is medical director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery, which primarily serves Jehovah's Witnesses, who do not accept blood transfusions but will accept recycled cell saver blood.

By using the cell saver as a primary method of blood conservation, their efforts have allowed these patients to do just as well or better than patients who get transfusions of donated blood, he says. Preliminary findings suggest patients who avoid banked blood develop fewer hospital-acquired infections.
