Abstract:

Cross-matching of blood components to the patient’s blood is mandatory to ensure the safe transfusion of suitable blood components in a timely manner and avoid serious harm to the recipient. This article will outline the validated methods of cross-matching in the laboratory setting. We will also discuss transfusion reactions and consequences of transfusion of inappropriate or mismatched blood components, alongside the principles of patient blood management and pre-operative anaemia.
