Ensuring patient informed consent is a key tenet of modern medicine. Although transfusion of blood products is among the most common medical procedures performed in hospitalized patients, there is evidence that informed consent for transfusion is at times incomplete, poorly understood, hurried, and/or inaccurate. This study aimed to develop a narrative that can be used as a framework for practicing physicians and for educational purposes to optimize the process for obtaining informed consent for blood transfusion...

Acute chest syndrome (ACS) is the leading cause of mortality among individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD) accounting for 25% of all deaths. The etiologies and clinical manifestations of ACS are variable among children and adults, with a lack of clear risk stratification guidelines for the practicing clinician. In addition, the management of ACS is based on limited evidence and is currently guided primarily by expert opinion. This manuscript reviews the pathophysiology, risk factors, and current management strategies for ACS through a review of published data on this subject between 1988 and 2022...

Pre- and postexposure prophylaxis for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are key to reducing the transmission of this virus. Furthermore, low-toxicity, long-acting formulations provide additional clinical benefits, in particular easier adherence to treatment and prevention. However, breakthrough HIV infections can occur despite the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), mainly due to suboptimal adherence or multi-drug resistant HIV strains. Albeit rare, PrEP breakthrough infections have also been reported in fully adherent patients...

Published guidelines and clinical practices vary when defining indications for irradiation of blood components for the prevention of transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GVHD). This study assessed irradiation indication lists generated by multiple artificial intelligence (AI) programs, or chatbots, and compared them to 2020 British Society for Haematology (BSH) practice guidelines. Four chatbots (ChatGPT-3.5, ChatGPT-4, Bard, and Bing Chat) were prompted to list the indications for irradiation to prevent TA-GVHD...

The optimal use of prophylactic platelet transfusion remains uncertain in a number of clinical scenarios. Platelet count thresholds have been established in patients with hematologic malignancies, yet thresholds backed by scientific data are limited or do not exist for many patient populations. Clinical scenarios involving transfusion thresholds for thrombocytopenic patients with critical illness, need for surgery or invasive procedures, or those involving specials populations like children and neonates, lack clear evidence for discerning favorable outcomes without undue risk related to platelet transfusion...

Over the last decade, the introduction of omics technologies-especially high-throughput genomics and metabolomics-has contributed significantly to our understanding of the role of donor genetics and nongenetic determinants of red blood cell storage biology. Here we briefly review the main advances in these areas, to the extent these contributed to the appreciation of the impact of donor sex, age, ethnicity, but also processing strategies and donor environmental, dietary or other exposures - the so-called exposome-to the onset and severity of the storage lesion...

Allogeneic peripheral blood stem cells mobilization is now the basis of most stem cell transplants. In a very limited number of cases, mobilization is suboptimal leading to further collection procedures, to suboptimal cell doses infusion with delayed engraftment time, increased risks of transplant procedure and of related costs. To date we have no recognized and shared criteria for early estimating the probability of poor mobilization in healthy donors. We then analyzed allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell donations performed at the Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A...

There is evidence of significant intraoperative red blood cell (RBC) transfusion variability that cannot be explained by case-mix, and may reflect unwarranted transfusions. The objective was to explore the source of intraoperative RBC transfusion variability by eliciting the beliefs of anesthesiologists and surgeons that underlie transfusion decisions. Interviews based on the Theoretical Domains Framework were conducted to identify beliefs about intraoperative transfusion. Content analysis was performed to group statements into domains...

Blood is a complex fluid owing to its two-phase suspension of formed cellular elements within a protein-rich plasma. Vital to its role in distributing nutrients throughout the circulatory system, the mechanical properties of blood - and particularly red blood cells (RBC)-primarily determine bulk flow characteristics and microcirculatory flux. Various factors impair the physical properties of RBC, including cellular senescence, many diseases, and exposure to mechanical forces. Indeed, the latter is increasingly relevant following the advent of modern life support, such as mechanical circulatory support (MCS), which induce unique interactions between blood and artificial environments that leave blood cells with the signature of aging, albeit accelerated, and crucially underlie various serious complications, including death...

Labeling of platelets (PLTs) is essential for research purposes, in order to measure the recovery and survival of transfused PLTs in vivo. Biotinylation is a promising new alternative to the gold standard of radioactive labeling. This review highlights 4 key publications that provide significant insights into biotin-labeled PLTs (bioPLTs). Stohlawetz et al. established that transfusion of bioPLTs in human recipients is possible. De Bruin et al. developed a standardized, reproducible protocol for biotinylation of PLTs as a promising method to trace and isolate transfused PLTs in vivo, with reduced levels of PLT activation markers...

REVIEW
Seema R Patel, Cheryl L Maier, James C Zimring
RBC alloimmunization remains a significant barrier to ongoing transfusion therapy leading to morbidity, and in extreme cases mortality, due to delayed or insufficient units of compatible RBCs. In addition, the monitoring and characterization of alloantibodies, often with multiple specificities in a single patient, consumes substantial health care resources. Extended phenotypic matching has mitigated, but not eliminated, RBC alloimmunization and is only logistically available for specialized populations. Thus, RBC alloimmunization remains a substantial problem...

Thomas C Binns, Nataliya Sostin, Christopher A Tormey
Therapeutic apheresis refers to a diversity of procedures in which specific hematologic components (e.g., plasma, erythrocytes, leukocytes, etc.) with pathological associations are removed from circulation (with possible replacement) in order to treat a variety of disease processes. As pharmacologic agents also circulate with these components, their removal is sometimes incidental, or in the scenario of drug toxicity, a therapeutic goal. The corpus of published manuscripts on this subject has grown immensely over the past few decades; however, the breadth of diseases, methods, and drugs that co-exist in this space make it challenging to generate generalizable evidence regarding drug removal via apheresis...

Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) has traditionally been used to selectively remove pathologic contents including autoantibodies, abnormal proteins, immune complexes, or toxins from a patient's plasma. In addition to the removal of molecular contributors to disease, fluid replacement and infusion of beneficial plasma constituents including albumin can be tapered based on the pathophysiologic mechanisms of the offending disease. This treatment modality has shown efficacy in symptomatic relief and slowing of disease progression for various neurologic, immunologic, and hematologic diseases...

Blood collection from minority populations improves the transfusion support of patients with sickle cell disease and thalassemia, but efforts are challenged by high deferral rates for hemoglobin (Hb) eligibility thresholds. This study sought to evaluate hemoglobin and iron status of a representative US female population to assess the suitability of 12.0 g/dL as minimum hemoglobin. Data were extracted from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES), 1999-2010. A national sample designed to reflect potential female blood donors (weight ≥110 lbs, not pregnant, no infectious marker reactivity, and no blood donation in past year) aged 16 to 49 years was analyzed for Hb and serum ferritin (SF) measures by race/ethnicity (N = 6937)...
