Back to Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration, 9th edition - Print
The 9th edition of Standards for Perioperative Autologous Blood Collection and Administration (Perioperative Standards) contains requirements that address perioperative collection and preparation of red cell and non-red-cell components. Its goal is to maintain and enhance the quality and safety of perioperative autologous blood collection and administration and to provide a basis for the AABB Accreditation Program. It reflects the concerns and priorities of several different aspects of the discipline, including the input of recognized experts in the field and the best interests of their patients. It was developed in the context of the global drive for quality in health care and internationally recognized principles of quality management.
Significant changes to the 9th edition:
- New Standard 1.4 requires the perioperative program have policies, processes, and procedures in place to ensure continuity of operations is maintained in the case of potential events that could put operations at risk.
- New Standard 18.104.22.168 requires that perioperative programs ensure that in the cases of adverse events, the first step taken is to discontinue the administration of blood components.
- New Standard 8.3.1 requires that perioperative programs ensure that quality indicator data gathered are shared with the individuals who have most responsibility for activities surrounding this information.
