Abstract

“The strategy of avoiding transfusion often termed ‘bloodless surgery’ should not be limited to JWs [Jehovah’s Witnesses] but should form an integral part of everyday surgical practice as more evidence accumulates on the adverse effects of blood transfusion.”

We offer free consulting services for administrators and physician leaders wishing to establish a bloodless medicine and surgery program.
