Blood transfusions are a critical part of everyday life and assist in saving countless lives each year. Blood transfusion service is a vital component of hospital services. The Department of Transfusion in Sterling Multi Specialty Hospital provides blood support to the patients. It collects blood from voluntary and replacement donors only. Strict donor selection criteria are followed by the hospital to ensure good health to the donor and good quality blood. Keeping in mind the criticality of this function, Sterling Multi Specialty Hospital has adopted following strategies to ensure maximum efficiency of this department.
Reduction of unnecessary blood transfusion, 100% use of components so as to save blood and use every component as and when required. Elimination of transfusion transmitted diseases and transfusion of safe blood. To maintain quality of blood and blood products, voluntary donors are taken. In private blood banks, where blood donation camp is not permitted by Government of India, the immediate family members are considered as replacement donors.
Apart from carrying out all mandatory tests (VDRL, Malaria, HIV I&II, Hep:Bs Antigen and Hept:C virus (HCV) as laid down by the Drug Controller of India for licensed Blood Banks, Sterling Multi Specialty Hospital also conducts Hepatitis B core Antibody (Ani HBc Ab IgM + IgG) on every unit of blood to make the blood safer for transfusion.
These tests are conducted on the latest AXSYM Automatic Machine from Abbot, USA. Sterling Multi Specialty Hospital conducts Micro-particle Enzyme Immuno Assay (MEIA) on every unit of blood for HIV I&II, HBs Ag, Abtu GV cire Av & HCV Ab for screening of blood donors. MEIA method is preferred over EliSA method for following reasons -
