This 60 minute eCPD tutorial discusses blood transfusion medicine. We will start with reasons why cats and dogs may require a blood transfusion, and if so, which type of blood products they may require. We will cover blood typing and cross matching along with infusion rates, monitoring the patient during the transfusion, and also adverse reactions and how we may treat them. We will also look at donor selection and collection of whole blood within a practice setting.
This CPD tutorial is worth 60 minutes towards your RCVS requirements.
