What is an autologous donation?
An autologous blood donation is when a patient donates their blood
and it is stored for their own upcoming surgery. The autologous blood
donation will be stored in HEMORIO
until the day before surgery, when it will be shipped to the hospital
where the surgery will occur.
are the benefits?
With this type of donation the patients will receive their own blood.
There is no risk of a Transfusion Transmitted Disease. Transfusions
reactions are very improbably to occur. Each autologous blood donation
is tracked through the processing, testing and delivery cycle. It
is only delivered to the specific donor and hospital.
