Main abstracts and medical articles containing scientific evidence of the benefits of preserving autologous blood and therapeutic options for allogeneic (donated) blood transfusions
Through the utilization of one or multiple therapeutic options we can lessen transfused patients, as well as the quantity of blood and blood components administered to each individual patient.
The benefits are not restricted to the economic sphere, but it is also benefician in relation to incidence and severity of the complications, especially the mortality, related to the allogeneic blood transfusions.
The BEST BLOOD a patient can receive in a transfusion is your OWN BLOOD. The BLOOD with your OWN DNA.
Since 1960, many doctors have begun the development of protocols to perform surgeries without the need of blood transfusions. One of the leading doctors in this field of the medicine was Dr. Denton Arthur Cooley. In 1962, he performed the first major open heart surgery without the use of blood transfusion. In 1977, he published in one of the major medical journals of international circulation (JAMA), the result of his study after successfully performing 542 cardiac surgeries without the use of blood components. The final conclusion of his research was that “cardiac surgeries can be safely performed without blood transfusion”.
