Blood transfusions are variable across centers in the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI). Transfusions are associated with a higher postoperative myocardial infarction and death risk after open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and lower extremity arterial bypass grafting. Efforts to reduce transfusion may focus on center variability, gender, and preoperative anemia.

AbstractAn autopsy involves examination of a body using invasive methods such as dissection, and includes various tests using samples procured during dissection. During medicolegal autopsies, the blood carboxyhemoglobin concentration is commonly measured using the AVOXimeter ® 4000 as a point-of-care test. When evaluating the body following hypovolemic shock, characteristics such as reduced livor mortis or an anemic appearance of the viscera can be identified, but these observations arequite subjective. Thus, a more objective test is required for the postmortem diagnos is of anemia. In the present study, the AVOXimeter...

In this study, to discover the effects of iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies on the hematopoietic stem cells, we studied CFU assay from peripheral blood. One hundred and two children were included in our study and were evaluated in five categories: iron deficiency, iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B12 deficiency, iron and vitamin B12 deficiency, and controls. As a result of statistical analysis, no significant difference was detected between five groups in terms of CFU assays. The results of our study suggest that, in emergent situations, stem cell samples can be collected before treatment with B12 or iron which are common d...

ConclusionConformation changes at the VWF D'D3‐A1 interface may be a key regulator of thrombosis in vivo. Structural features at the A1‐A2 interface are likely of less significance.

ObjectivesTo assess the prevalence of thrombocytopenia in a referral population of cats in the UK, to identify disease processes associated with thrombocytopenia and to assess the proportion of thrombocytopenic cats that tested positive for feline leukaemia virus or feline immunodeficiency virus. Materials and MethodsRetrospective analysis of medical records at a UK referral hospital. Cats were grouped by mechanism of thrombocytopenia and disease process (where known). ResultsPrevalence of thrombocytopenia was 5·9%. The most common disease processes associated with thrombocytopenia were haematological or infectious ...

AbstractBackgroundIn addition to pain, sickle cell anaemia (HbSS) complications include neurocognitive difficulties in attention and processing speed associated with low daytime and night-time oxygen saturation compounded by obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). In the general population OSA is treated with continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP). The aim of this single-blind, randomised, controlled phase II trial is to compare auto-adjusting CPAP (APAP) with standard care to standard care alone in individuals with HbSS to determine whether the intervention improves attention and processing speed, brain structure, pain and q...

DiscussionThis trial, embedded in the national implementation of the eRegistry in Palestine, allows the assessment of process and health outcomes in a large-scale pragmatic setting. Findings will inform the use of interactive checklists and clinical decision support driven by point-of-care data entry into an eRegistry as a health systems-strengthening approach.Trial registrationISRCTN trial registration number,ISRCTN18008445. Registered on 6 April 2017.

The critical care and perioperative settings are high consumers of blood products, with multiple units and different products often given to an individual patient. The recommendation of this review is always to consider the risks and benefits for a specific blood product for a specific patient in a specific clinical setting. Optimize patient status by treating anemia and preventing the need for red blood cell transfusion. Consider other options for correction of anemia and coagulation disorders and use an imperative non-overtransfusion policy for all blood products.

We present a 2-year-old boy with splenomegaly, leukocytosis, thrombocytopenia, anemia, and excess myeloblasts with easily seen Auer rods, and marked dysgranulopoiesis and dyserythropoiesis. Conventional cytogenetic analysis showed a sole abnormality of t(3;5)(q25;q35). Microarray analysis showed a terminal 21 Mb region of copy-neutral loss of heterozygosity on 19q. Disease-related somatic NRAS mutation was detected. This case represents an unusual JMML with Auer rods and marked myelodysplasia. These unusual histopathologic features may be related to the t(3;5)(q25;q35). A t(3;5) with variable breakpoints has been reported ...
