Transfusion During Fever May Or May Not?
, I want it, if I want a TC transfusion but the condition of a fever patient is OK or not … thanks
Thank you for the question.
Blood transfusion is the act of channeling blood into the body when there is a lack of blood. This transfusion can be done in total, involving all components of the blood (whole blood), but can also only a few components of the blood, for example platelets (TC, thrombocyte concentrate). TC transfusion itself can be given to people with platelet deficiency. With TC transfusion, the bleeding process can be stopped.
Fever there are many possible causes, ranging from infections, heat strokes, inflammatory disorders, malignancies, hormonal disorders, drug side effects, excessive anxiety, and so on. Fever itself is actually not an absolute contraindication to blood transfusion, including TC transfusion. It's just that, given the side effects of transfusion itself is a fever, of course giving TC transfusions when the fever can further make these side effects more severe later. Depending on the cause of the fever, TC transfusion during a fever may or may not be dangerous. Therefore, in patients who have a fever, the most entitled to determine whether the transfusion can be done immediately or needs to be postponed is the doctor or internist who treats the patient. So, consult him directly ...
I hope this helps.
