Autotransfusion Units, Whole Blood Hemofiltration

Definition : Autotransfusion units designed to collect blood lost by a patient for subsequent reinfusion into the same patient (i.e., autotransfusion) without processing. These units typically include a suction mechanism to collect blood from the surgical field, a mechanism to add anticoagulants, particulate microfilters, and a reservoir to store the blood. Whole blood autotransfusion units are used mainly during surgical procedures, but they may be also used during postoperative recovery and in emergency or intensive care units after trauma.
