Cellmed Autologous Blood Service
What is Autotransfusion?
Autotransfusion, cell saving or autologous blood recovery, is the practice of reinfusing a patient’s own blood as an alternative to the use of donor (allogeneic) blood transfusions. The blood donor and recipient are the same during autotransfusion.
Why is an alternative to donor blood necessary?
Autotransfusion provides immediate benefits to the patient and surgical team. It uses a blood resource that would otherwise be lost. It also makes blood available for immediate use.
Autotransfusion is a safe and reliable cost effective method of returning red blood cells to the patient.
