PBM program

Patient blood management is really a patient-centered, evidence-based method of eliminating unnecessary blood transfusions.
Along with our six-point PBM program, the bloodless medicine support has become a fundamental element of the individual blood management program. Our bloodless medicine support treats patients who refuse transfusions with dignity and regard. Bloodless medicine involves exactly the same concepts as patient blood administration with the only distinction becoming that, for these patients, transfusion isn't a final resort - it isn't a choice at all.
The individual blood management committee might provide guidance to the bloodless medicine program also to the medical staff who treat bloodless medicine patients. Subsequently, our efforts to lessen transfusions throughout UPMC are usually rewarded when dealing with patients who refuse bloodstream transfusions.
Preoperative correction of anemia - A substantial amount of patients requiring elective surgery have anemia (reduced blood counts). Identifying the reason for the anemia is vital in determining appropriate therapy, that may include the usage of nutrition, iron, vitamin supplements, and pharmaceutical agents.
Intraoperative blood cell reinfusion and recovery - This technology captures blood misplaced during surgery, cleans it, and reinfuses it to the individual.
Hemodilution - This process involves removing a particular level of blood before medical procedures, replacing it with intravenous fluids immediately, and returning it to the individual after surgery. The target is to decrease or eliminate the dependence on blood transfusions during medical procedures.
Adhesives and thrombin - The usage of human-derived and synthetic items supports the entire body’s capability to clot, reducing bleeding during medical procedures.
Meticulous surgical techniques, invasive surgery minimally, and electrocautery - The usage of smaller medical instruments and incisions helps reduce loss of blood during surgery. Surgeons is capable of doing many methods - joint replacements, cancer and heart surgeries, organ transplants - without having to use banked blood even.

  • Kale Pasta with Sunflower Cream Sauce

    My kitchen would not be complete without a stash of nut/seed cream (so much so, in fact, I made a video for the pantry reset series.) It’s a lovely addition to soups, porridge, dressings, or sauces. This kale pasta is the perfect way to use the sunflower cream. The pasta comes together fast and also [...]

  • Brown Rice Porridge

    I’m on a mission to make a porridge from every grain I have in my pantry (not really, but I probably should be). I have my favorites and this brown rice porridge is towards the top. One thing about my porridges that happens to be the case across the board: I like them thick and [...]

  • Pumpkin Paneer Curry

    Post sponsored by Frontier Co-op. See below for more details. One pretty well known fact is that I’m not big on tofu- it’s a texture thing. I’ve tried to get over it for years and while there are some recipes I enjoy, it’s still not a favorite of mine. I’ve managed to adapt most of [...]

  • Chipotle Lentil Tacos

    Of all the pantry inspired meals, these tacos are one of my favorites. Lentils soak up flavors amazingly well. Then toss those spiced lentils in a warm tortilla and add your favorite toppings: it’s a perfect recipe for dinner. Beyond the flavor, these chipotle lentil tacos are fairly fast and most of the time is [...]

  • Sumac Acorn Squash Soup with Parsley Sauce

    This is one of those recipes that I like to push the flavors just a bit. The sumac lends a slightly brighter taste to the acorn squash while the parsley/tahini sauce brings the balance. It’s a perfect partnership that also happens to be vegan (thanks for creamy white beans). I also find this soup is [...]
