Patient Blood Management In The Cardiac Surgical Setting: An Updated Overview

In cardiac surgical patients it is a complex challenge to find the ideal balance between anticoagulation and hemostasis. Preoperative anemia and perioperative higher transfusion rates are related to increased morbidity and mortality. Patient blood management (PBM) is an evidence based patient specific individualized protocol used in the perioperative setting in order to reduce perioperative bleeding and transfusion rates and to improve patient outcomes.
