Clinical Strategies for Managing Haemorrhage and Anaemia without Blood Transfusion

This booklet is an attempt to bring together current thinking on ‘bloodless’ medicine and surgery from a wide variety of medical sources. We trust that this format will prove helpful to clinicians by providing ready access to relevant information on the management of patients who request treatment without recourse to allogeneic blood.

This material rejects current clinical and scientific knowledge and is therefore subject to change. The strategies do not indicate an exclusive course of treatment, as clinical judgement may necessitate modi?cation, depending on the specific circumstances and patient preferences.
