Evolution of the blood transfusion method and therapeutic alternatives. MEDISAN [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.7, pp.982-993. ISSN 1029-3019.

The world trend on blood transfusions is directed at restricting their use if possible and that of allogeneic derivatives as well, taking into account the associated risk, bioavailability problems, certain religious beliefs and the best understanding of compensatory mechanisms of anemia. In this regard the available medical literature on the subject was reviewed to exhibit a therapeutic regime based on a total review of the problem with the purpose of reducing or avoiding homologous blood transfusion.

Keywords : blood transfusion; allogeneic derivatives; blood risk factors.
