Administration of blood transfusion during dialysis

Haemodialysis 5


Stored red blood cells in bags of blood ready for transfusion, can contain more than 20 mmol/L of potassium. Because of this potential risk of high and unknown levels of potassium, patient with end stage  kidney disease requiring blood transfusion should, if possible, receive blood  transfusions during a dialysis session

In addition it is safe practice is to administer blood in the form of packed red blood cells rather than whole blood. The administered volume is added to the total fluid loss requiring during the dialysis
