The hemoglobin concentration is calculated by determining the density of the centrifugally packed red cells
by measuring the depth of the float in the packed red cells
and correcting its depth and by accounting for the floatation forces of the huffy coat.
Treatment requires antigen-reduced packed red cells
to control symptoms, and iron overload should be diminished by concurrent use of chelation therapy.
These different causes probably account for the finding that despite similar baseline haemoglobin values between the groups, HIV-positive patients received more transfusions of packed red cells
than HIV-negative patients.
We used the red cell cobalamin lower limit of 33 pmol/L packed red cells
to dichotomize the concentrations into deficient and nondeficient vitamin [B.
In this case, adrenaline 3 mg, phenylephrine 3 mg and 3680 ml of fluid (four units packed red cells
, two units FFP and 2 litres Plasmalyte) were given in the first 15 minutes of the reaction to maintain reservoir levels.
Control of analyzer slope and intercept in the measurement of packed red cell
volume (PCV), part 1.
Finally, they would start receiving packed red cells
and FFP in a 1:1 ratio, Dr.
However, the number of 12-hour blood transfusions and the proportion of patients who received more than six units of packed red cells
within 12 hours of injury decreased significantly.
For these reasons and for some time now at Baylor University Medical Center, the Transfusion Service has issued leukoreduced packed red cells
and platelets to newborn infants, transplant patients, and cancer patients on a rational "indication" basis developed by the Transfusion Committee.
When AIDS patients are transfused with packed red cells
, the number of complexes, which probably include AIDS viruses, goes down in five days.
