Blood Safety

Blood safety encompasses activities intended to mitigate risks of blood transfusion including, in part, donor selection, laboratory testing, component collection, and monitoring transfusion recipients.

Hemovigilance (HV) constitutes one aspect of blood safety, and involves monitoring the entire spectrum of blood donation and transfusion.

The HV Module developed a set of standardized national surveillance procedures used in the monitoring of transfusion-associated adverse reactions, which are aimed at improving patient safety, minimizing morbidity and mortality of transfusion recipients, and identifying emerging complications and infections associated with recipient blood transfusions.
