The Australian National Blood Authority provides information about blood transfusions for clinicians, patients and the media (and lawyers)! I recommend a video on their website titled “Blood, sill saving lives but….there are risks – Patient Blood Management” (www.blood.gov.au – patient tab – patient education videos). Why? It is a ‘risk‘ to consider in personal injury.
