Explore education topics on transfusion risks; identification and management of potential adverse reactions. 


28 June 2017 01:30pm - 02:00pm - Australia/Sydney

This session covers aspects that a clinician, transfusion scientist and the Blood Service need to know about TRALI, its aetology, investigation and management.

Dr Joanne Pink is the Chief Medical Officer at the Blood Service.

Watch this presentation by Dr Phillip Mondy (27 May 2015) exploring the physiology of haemolytic anaemia and the associated transfusion testing.

Dr Phillip Mondy is a Transfusion Medicine Specialist and Haematologist at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service.

Watch this recording by Dr Peta Dennington (3 June 2015) exploring Transfusion-Associated Circulatory Overload (TACO) & Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury (TRALI). As initial presentation and clinical management may be quite similar, longer term investigation and management depends on identifying the difference.

Dr Peta Dennington is a Transfusion Medicine Specialist at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. 

Watch this presentation by Dr Oi-Lin Lee (29 Oct 2014), which focuses on some of the risks associated with transfusion. Dr Lee also explores recipient physiological responses that can cause longer term transfusion issues.
