Procedure for Reconstituted Whole Blood

Recommended Posts

We do this too, but the sops already posted have everything in them that is needed.  

I would caution you to not use saline as a diluent.  We had a physician insist on it ages ago, but it doesn't work.  You really need the oncotic pressure from plasma or albumin.  If the concern is kernicterus, some places will use albumin.  That's not usually why we do an exchange.  We are usually confronted with a sickle cell patient with chest syndrome.
