Extract:

“Blood transfusions to treat anemia can have a significant impact on patient outcomes. Because transfusion practices vary among healthcare providers, many clinicians question the best practice for blood product use. Blood management is defined as a patient-centered standard of care in which strategies and techniques are used to reduce, eliminate, or optimize blood transfusions to improve patient outcomes. Blood management programs have addressed the variances in healthcare provider practice as they’ve reduced blood use and healthcare costs.”
