National Hemovigilance Pilot Program Launches to Track Adverse Events Associated with Blood Transfusion
Date:5/7/2009

ts. Fully reliable data about the relative risks of transfusion do not exist, particularly concerning life-threatening noninfectious hazards of transfusion such as transfusion of the wrong unit of blood into a patient and transfusion-related acute lung injury, or TRALI.

TRALI is just one of many examples of how mitigating the current adverse events associated with transfusions would produce large health care savings nationally and, most importantly, enhance patient safety. For patients at risk for TRALI, data collected and compiled from the Hemovigilance Module could lead to the development of new treatment protocols. In addition to improved care, an estimated $40 million or more could be saved by eliminating the need for further diagnostic patient assessments (including x-rays), respiratory treatment and extended hospital stays.

"The Hemovigilance Module in NHSN is an important step forward for blood safety in the United States," said Matthew J. Kuehnert, MD, FACP, director of the CDC's Office of Blood, Organ, and other Tissue Safety. "This unique collaborative effort between federal government and the private sector has great potential to be a critical building block for a national biovigilance program, which has as a common goal to improve patient safety and donor health."
