AUTOTRANSFUSION SERVICES


About 12 million units of blood are transfused each year in the U.S.  Although many transfusions use homologous blood (where blood types are cross-matched between donors and recipients) the risks of homologous transfusion can be economically and physically costly.  That is why autologous blood (where a patient donates his/her own blood) is an increasingly common transfusion alternative.  And you will find no one more familiar with autologous blood procedures than Healthcare Network.
