Rapid correction of anemia with partial exchange transfusion.


Journal Article

Six pediatric patients have recently undergone eight partial exchange transfusions for anemias complicated by other clinical conditions. The procedure was well tolerated, and those patients who were in congestive heart failure exhibited good clinical improvement. This technique is particularly useful in situations where the patient is unable to tolerate the increased blood volume produced by other methods of RBC-transfusion therapy. We present a formula for estimation of partial exchange transfusion volume and suggest indications for partial exchange transfusion.
