Synopsis:
The 30th edition of Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services details the latest standards of practice in blood banking and transfusion medicine. As in the past, each chapter heading represents one of the Quality System Essentials and the quality standards are supplemented by technical requirements. The effective date of this edition is April 1, 2016. Significant changes: - New standard 4.1.2.2 allows facilities outside of the United States to have laboratory testing performed in a facility authorized by the Competent Authority in their home country instead of following US-focused regulations. - Standard 5.1.5.2 has been expanded to allow facilities to use pathogen reduction technology for detecting bacteria in all platelet components. - Standard 5.2.1 has added a requirement that all donors be given educational materials regarding the risk of postdonation iron deficiency. - New standard 5.19.7 requires that facilities have processes in place to prevent transfusion-related circulatory overload. It is the responsibility of the ordering physician to determine which patients are at a higher risk level than others. - New standard 7.3 requires that facilities have standardized terminology for classifying and reporting transfusion reactions.
