Adopting Closed Blood Sampling (CBS) as part of your Patient Blood Management (PBM) program as standard operating procedure in your OR and ICU may help you achieve positive patient outcome while providing cost-effective care. CBS is demonstrated to more effectively conserve blood, improve patient outcomes and reduce costs when compared with conventional blood sampling procedures.12, 17, 22-25
Blood loss due to sampling with discarding can lead to a decline in hemoglobin (Hb), which can contribute to anemia.13,16-18
Reducing blood draw-induced anemia diminishes the need for blood transfusion.3 Moreover, iatrogenic anemia may be reduced through a culture of blood management.3
You may make a difference in your patients’ outcomes by incorporating closed blood sampling within your patient blood management program.32
Edwards offers a host of educational resources to help your hospital implement closed blood sampling including education, a value estimator and clinical evidence.
