Abstract

Blood is necessary and important in the treatment of patients. Today, there is no one who can invent anything that can completely replace blood. Therefore, there is a need for blood donations in order to save lives. Thus, the author investigated the development of effective blood reserve management. The objective of this study was to determine the appropriate blood reserves at NakhonNayok Hospital.

Method: By collecting the blood usage data of patients in NakhonNayok Hospital for the past 6 months between July 1 to December 31, 2020. The blood data were classified by the type of blood constituents and ABO blood group, and studies were made specifically for the components of blood stocked in the blood bank, including Packed Red Blood Cells (PRC) and Leukocyte Poor Packed Red Cells (LPRC) products, Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP), Cryoprecipitate (CPP) and Rh-Negative blood group. In the case of CPP, studies were not made separately for just the ABO blood group, because CPP can be used for all patients with ABO blood group. For the Rh-Negative blood group, only the red blood cells were studied due to low consumption and it could not be summed up on a daily basis. Therefore, the total number of Rh-negative blood units administered to patients within 6 months (or 26 weeks) were collected.

Results: The studies showed that a total of 1,838 units of red blood cells, 800 units of FFP, 64 units of CPP, and 5 units of Rh-negative red blood cells were used to determine the appropriate reserve quantity of red blood cells. From the method of calculating the average weekly blood reserve usage, the values ​​for blood groups O, A, B, and AB were 30, 29, 12, and 20 units, respectively. The optimal amount of fresh frozen plasma, based on weekly usage calculations, was 20, 19, 12, and 20 units, respectively. The appropriate CPP-based reserve, calculated for the weekly consumption was 64 units.
