Patient Blood Management Guidelines Module 1 – Critical Bleeding/Massive Transfusion was developed by the National Blood Authority (NBA) for use by healthcare professionals in managing patients with critical bleeding requiring massive transfusion. You can view a PDF copy of Module 1
The NBA Patient Blood Management Guidelines Module 1 - Critical Bleeding/Massive Transfusion is the first of six patient blood management modules being developed in three phases to replace the NHMRC/Australasian Society of Blood Transfusion (ASBT) Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Use of Blood Components (2001).
Future Patient Blood Management Guidelines modules under development by NBA will address peri-operative, medical, critical care, obstetric and paediatric patient blood management.
Further information on the development of the Patient Blood Management Guidelines can be obtained from the NBA website.
