Volume transfused

Recommended Posts

We are currently building the Bridge system for transfusion documentation.  I know AABB and CAP standards require "amount transfused" to be in the patient record.  Does anyone know if this is by individual unit transfused or a cumulative amount?

As a nursing task, the amount for each transfusion needs to be documented, if I am not mistaken.

For routine transfusions, each transfusion should include the volume of the product given.  In massive transfusions, however, it is often common for them to track/document just the total cumulative volume of each type of product given during the massive bleed event.
