Blood and Component Transfusionn:
Transfusionns are used for various medical conditions to replace lost components of the blood. Early transfusionns used whole blood, but modern medical practice commonly uses only components of the blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, clotting factors, and platelets.
Blood component transfusionns, also called blood transfusionns, can improve a patient's condition. They can even save a patient’s life. The number of patients who become very ill or die from a blood component is very small when compared to the benefits that blood components can provide.
Discuss the specific need or reason for the blood component you or your child is about to receive with your doctor.Blood components are often used to replace red blood cells or other elements of the blood that are missing or at low levels due to an injury or illness.
