University of Maryland finds restricting post-surgery blood transfusion is safe for some hip patients
Date:12/14/2011

s no compelling reason to transfuse to maintain a hemoglobin level of 10 grams per deciliter," says Dr. Terrin. "Allowing the hemoglobin level to drift down to 8 grams per deciliter is perfectly adequate in the absence of symptoms of anemia."

The study examined a particularly vulnerable population elderly, anemic patients with a history of or risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The findings likely have implications for healthier patients as well, says Dr. Terrin.

"If the extra blood provided by these transfusions didn't do these patients any recognizable good, it seems unlikely that transfusion would do any good for less precarious patient populations who are free of symptoms of anemia and maintain hemoglobin levels above 8 grams per deciliter on their own. It seems transfusions could be withheld across the board for a large number of patients."

The study could have an immediate impact on patient care, says E. Albert Reece, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., vice president for medical affairs for the University of Maryland and John Z. and Akiko K. Bowers Distinguished Professor and dean, University of Maryland School of Medicine.

"Our top tier scientists strive to bring better care to patients and to help doctors make good decisions based on good science," says Dean Reece. "This research is an outstanding example of how our groundbreaking research is affecting medicine in the clinic in crucial ways."
