In order to decrease the potassium, hydrogen ion, and glucose levels in a unit of donor banked blood (prbc's), what solution and volume are you routinely using to wash the cells using either a 135ml bowl or 250ml bowl?
And how do you label the final product post processing? Thanks in advance for your responses.

  Hi, We routinely wash our donor blood,especially in all paediatric cases,we add  Heparinised Ringers solution for priminig the whole circuit and add albumin in it(5%) and circulate for 5-10mts,the we add the donor blood into the circuit and allow it to mix with the previous priming solution,then slowly we start  hemofiltration and remove the excess volume at the rate of 1:2, there by we try to reduce the potassium,glucose and lactate levels in the donor blood and then we add Bicarb and mannitol in the prime

Hi,
We  used to do the same technique as posted just before this except we use 0.45% Normal saline and do the hemoconcentration, check ABG and Glucose levels, correct the deficit and initiate bypass.
