Erytrocyttransfusion till kritiskt sjuka kan vara farligare än anemi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Anemia is common in critically ill patients. Some patients benefit from erythrocyte transfusion, but transfusions are also associated with complications. Randomized controlled trials in critically ill patients have demonstrated that a restrictive transfusion strategy seems safe. This review is an overview of some of the largest studies of erythrocyte transfusions in intensive care.
