New Study Reveals Wide Variation in Blood Transfusion Practices During Surgery
Date:7/26/2012

There is no doubt that clinicians desire the best care for their patients without unnecessary costs, but they are also limited in their precise ability to determine need for transfusion with existing tools. Estimates of blood loss in the operating room can be inaccurate. Researchers at Duke University recently reported estimated surgical blood loss exceeded measured blood loss by more than 40% (860mL vs. 611 mL, p< 0.0001).15 The likely reason for this discrepancy is the inability to accurately estimate blood loss based on visual inspection of blood and fluid in suction canisters and surgical sponges. While estimating blood loss is challenging and laboratory hemoglobin results are only availably intermittently and are often delayed, transfusion decisions are made in real time. Acknowledging these challenges, the Duke Researchers stated: "Use of bedside hemoglobin concentration devices and continuous, noninvasive hemoglobin monitors may improve transfusion decisions."

Masimo's breakthrough SpHb measurement allows clinicians to noninvasively and continuously monitor hemoglobin. Results of an earlier randomized controlled trial conducted by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School showed that SpHb helped anesthesiologists reduce the frequency of blood transfusion by 87% (from 4.5% to 0.6%, p=0.03) and quantity of blood by 90% (from 0.1 to 0.01 units per patient, p<0.0001) in 327 patients undergoing orthopedic surgery.16

Dr. Aryeh Shander, Executive Medical Director at the Institute for Patient Blood Management & Bloodless Medicine Surgery and Chief of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Englewood Hospital & Medical Center in New Jersey, stated: "The ability of Masimo's noninvasive hemoglobin technology to continuously monitor hemoglobin during surgeries can offer earlier, real-time information that can result in diagnosis leading to interventions other
