1 How we Managed to change Blood Usage with Q.I. Charles B. Yarnall Bs, CCP, LP Clinical Manager National Clinical Specialist
2 Blood Management back ground Chief Perfusionist at: – Pennsylvania Hospital to 2006 –Temple University Hospital to 2008 –Morristown Memorial 2008 to 2010 National Clinical Specialist –Abington Memorial Hospital 2010 to Present. –Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center.
3 3 Enabling Change for Blood Management 101 Before you begin anything, find the starting line. –Focusing on Intra-Operative Data was the best bet for a successful collection. Most blood banks are not setup for mass data searches bases on specific parameters such as: –Who gave and ordered the blood –What was the reason it was given –Where was the blood given –When the blood was given –Why that amount was given.
4 4 Enabling Change for Blood Management 101 Get your medical record numbers together. Go out and gather all available information –Your Blood Bank Administrator. –Director of Pathology –Hospitals STS Data base –Hospitals Blood management Committee This is a great opportunity to start building your extended support team. You need a multimodality approach for change to: –Start, Take Hold and Survive.
5 5 Enabling Change for Blood Management 101 Make the Data collection and entry as simple as possible. –The more information you get, the easier the answers will come. –Motivation is key: Additional work at the end of the case is never fun. –Accuracy is Paramount: Take the time to audit cases weekly, be supportive. – Review the list with your team and ask for feed back.
Adult CPB Quality Indicators Intraop Blood Products? Yes/No –Intraop Red Cell Units –Red Cell Units on CPB –Fresh Frozen Plasma Units –Cryoprecipitate Units –Platelet Units Red Cell Expire Date Highest Intraop Glucose Type of Procedure CPB Time Preop HCT First HCT in O.R. Post Heparin HCT Lowest on CPB HCT Last HCT in O.R. Anesthesia Volume Dynamic (Net) Priming Volume
7 Enabling Change for Blood Management 101 Once you have 90 days of Data Compile your findings –Graphing the result speaks volumes. –It’s the best way to gain a true perspective Share the data with your team every week: Pick a day and time of the week and stick to it. Talk about challenging cases. Review what was done, or not done, to help conserve the patients blood components.

9 Abington Memorial Hospital 3 Year running blood component usage - Only half the story -
10 Benchmark your findings - The other half - Intra-Op RBC Intra-Op PLT Intra-Op FFP Intra-Op CRYO National Top 10% Abington
11 Don’t Keep It a Secret Share your information –Most people have no idea of: A Departments actual usage Their ranking with Benchmarking The cost associated with a poor ranking –????????????? –Your either rising above, or digging a hole.
12 Enabling Change for Blood Management 101 Find a CHAMPION. –It might not be you! –It should be someone you can access easily. Cardiothoracic Surgeon Cardiac Anesthesiologist Director of Blood Bank. –COMUNICATION skills are PARAMOUNT! –A proven team builder will carry the process forward at a faster rate
13 The bottom line – Hard Dollars Each unit of blood products cost around: –$250 for PRBC’s –$56 for FFP –$700 for Single Donor Platelets –$500 each for Pooled Platelets

17 Biopassive Surface Coating STS & SCA Blood Conservation Practice Guideline 1 & CPB Practice Guidelines 4 Heparin bonded circuits: 13 –Decreased incidence of RBC transfusion by 20% –Decreased resternotomy by 40% –Decreased ICU LOS by 9.3 hours and Total LOS by 0.5 days 1.STS Blood Conservation Guideline.

18 Reduce ECC Prime STS & SCA Blood Conservation Practice Guideline 1 & CPB Practice Guidelines 4 Exposure to allogeneic RBC significantly reduced in low prime group as compared to standard (full) prime group. 5,6 Lowest HCT on bypass significantly higher in low prime group. 5 1.STS Blood Conservation Guideline.

19 Ultrafiltration Ultrafiltration is associated with a significant reduction in postoperative blood transfusions as well as reduce bleeding in adults undergoing cardiac surgery. 7 Post-bypass ultrafiltration significantly reduced morbidity by 43%. 8 Hemobag ® demonstrated a 64% reduction in allogeneic RBC units transfused (SC –Florida Hospital) 9 7.Boodhwani M., et al.

20 Abington Memorial Hospital 11 month running blood component usage - Hard Work will lead to rewarding outcomes -
21 Abington Memorial Hospital 3 Year running blood component usage - Only half the story -
22 Benchmark your findings - let the numbers speak for themselves - Intra-Op RBC Intra-Op PLT Intra-Op FFP Intra-Op CRY National Top 10% Before After Abington Intra-Op RBC 73% reduction Intra-Op PLT 85% reduction Intra-Op FFP 97% reduction Intra-Op CRY 8% reduction
