Patient Blood Management - Frankfurt PBM Program

Free sample

This book gives a brief overview of the "Patient Blood Management" (PBM) concept and is addressed to health professionals as well as all persons generally involved into hospital management.

"Patient Blood Management" (PBM) is a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach to improve perioperative care. The concept is based on three pillars that target modifiable risk factors for adverse outcome: i) preoperative screening, diagnosis and treatment of anaemia, ii) blood-sparing techniques, and iii) adequate blood product utilization. The superior objective is to optimize patient outcome.

Anaemia is common among hospital patients and an underestimated risk factor for blood transfusions, higher morbidity and mortality. Optimizing and preserving red cell mass before, during and after surgery can be achieved by a number of measures that can be implemented in EVERY hospital. These measures have high potential to improve patient outcome and to reduce costs both for allogeneic blood transfusions and for the treatment of the associated complications. Furthermore, due to the current demographical development, the offer of available blood products is most likely to decrease in the future whilst advances in modern medicine increase blood product demands, thus causing scarcity. Therefore, it is our duty towards society, patients and donors to use blood products wisely and only when absolutely necessary. Patient Blood Management is our strategy to face this challenge.

The use of a PBM concept will be of benefit for patients, society, doctors and hospitals. This book, written by the key members of the University Hospital Frankfurt PBM project, aims to give a deeper understanding of the three pillars of the concept, and provide insights for undertaking further research as well as planning and implementing concrete operative measures.

Patient Blood Management (PBM) is an innovative clinical concept that aims to reduce the need for
allogenic blood transfusions, cut health-care costs, and avert or correct the risk factors related to
blood transfusion, thus minimizing the rate of side effects and complications. This comprehensive
hands-on volume offers a three-point approach for the implementation of PBM to improve patient
outcome, focusing on how to prevent or treat anemia, reduce blood loss, and increase anemia
tolerance. The book also goes beyond preoperative PBM, with detailed accounts of coagulation
disorder management and the administration of coagulation products and platelet concentrates.

Special Features:
Presents a clear three-pillar strategy for the application of PBM: diagnosis and treatment of anemia, reduction of peri-interventional blood loss, and optimization of the tolerance to anemia in the everyday clinical settingCovers issues such as PBM during surgery, requirements for modern transfusion medicine, ordering blood products, the role of pre-anesthesia clinics, benchmarking processes, and potential implications of PBM in the public health sectorOverview of research in PBM including landmark studies and current clinical trialsBoxes in each chapter highlighting key information, core statements, and summariesA multidisciplinary and international team of contributors experienced in PBMPatient Blood Management is a guide for clinicians and residents whose patients are at risk for anemia, coagulation disorders, or severe blood loss. Anesthesiologists, surgeons, and specialists involved in the use of blood and blood products can use the book for quick reference or to learn more about a leading-edge concept for optimizing patient safety and improving outcome.
The New York Times bestselling author of Better and Complications reveals the surprising power of the ordinary checklist

We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies—neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. First introduced decades ago by the U.S. Air Force, checklists have enabled pilots to fly aircraft of mind-boggling sophistication. Now innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world, helping doctors and nurses respond to everything from flu epidemics to avalanches. Even in the immensely complex world of surgery, a simple ninety-second variant has cut the rate of fatalities by more than a third.

In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. He explains how checklists actually work to prompt striking and immediate improvements. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds.

An intellectual adventure in which lives are lost and saved and one simple idea makes a tremendous difference, The Checklist Manifesto is essential reading for anyone working to get things right.

Has your doctor lied to you?


Eat low-fat and high-carb, including plenty of "healthy" whole grains—does that sound familiar?

This updated and expanded edition of Dr. Berry's bestseller Lies My Doctor Told Me exposes the truth behind all kinds of "lies" told by well-meaning but misinformed medical practitioners.
