Aim and the benefit of the Patient Safety Practice
 
Patients own blood can be preserved during preoperative preparation and then used as a transfusion in surgical procedures where significant bleeding is expected. This way many complications common to transfusion of blood, such as infections and transfusion immune reactions can be avoided. This procedure is used in many trauma, cardiac and orthopedic cases, for example total joint replacement.
Description of the Patient Safety Practice
 
Transfusion process in which patient receives his/her own blood is the safest way to perform transfusion and it is known as autotransfusion. Preoperative collecting of patients blood is one way to perform autotransfusion during surgical procedure in which blood loss is expected. After the patient is anesthetized, just before the start of surgical procedure, patients blood is preserved in transfusion bags. At the same time, electrolit and coloid infusions are used to keep adequate hemodynamic status. So, if patient is bleeding, he/she is losing ''rare blood''. When hemostasis is achieved, patients own blood is returned. This way, patients’ blood is preserved and the risks of reactions on other people blood are avoided. Total costs of performing this procedure are significantly lower than in previously used methods and because of that, autotransfusion should take place in everyday practice. Beside proper education and usage of standardized blood transfusion bags, other costs are reduced because there is no need for blood testing or preserving blood for a long time.
