The Goal of Blood Transfusion:Improve Tissue Oxygen DeliveryAvoid Critical Tissue Hypoxia

Determinants ofOxygen Delivery (DO 2 ) to Tissues• In Health:–DO 2 2 to 4-foldgreater thanrequirements• Determinants of DO 2 :– Hb level– Oxygen saturation– Cardiac output– Microcirculation– Hb O 2 releaseblack box in clinical practiseHebert PC, CMAJ 1997; Tinmouth et al, Transfusion 2006

Implications for Research• Epidemiological– Confirming association of transfusion andadverse outcomes– Mechanisms (age of transfusion)• Randomised– lower transfusion thresholds– fresh blood vs older blood

ImplicationsPopulationRBCstransfused/yearGermany 82 mio 4.3 mioRatio: 2.6 Ratio: 4.8Canada 32 mio 0.9 mio

Conclusion 1• Clinical observations and secondary analysesindicate that transfusion of stored blood might beassociated with adverse outcomes• Patients with impaired cardiac function are ahigh risk group for storage related adverseevents of transfusion and an indicator for HV• Prospective randomized trials are urgentlyneeded comparing outcomes related to storagetime of transfused RBCs

Conclusion 2• NO in erythrocytes is a key player in hypoxia• O 2 release is increased via SNO-Hb by– vasodilation– central stimulation of ventilation• SNO-Hb decreases in stored blood < 1day• Currently all RBCs are SNO-Hb depleted• Do we suffocate patients by RBC transfusion(microcirculation and central)?• Renitrosilation of stored blood might be aperspective

Reynolds et al PNAS 2007• RBCs depleted in SNO-Hb were renitrosylated with purified NOsolutions (1). Aliquots of fresh or packed RBCs at storage days 1, 7,14, and 21 along with samples of expired RBCs were mixed withPBS (pH 7.4) in gas-tight vials and subsequently degassed withargon. (The expired RBC samples required additional pH bufferingby washing in PBS.) NO was slowly added to the vials to obtain afinal NO:heme ratio of either 1:250 or 1:500. The vials were thenopened to room air and gently vortexed to achieve rapidoxygenation of the RBCs [as previously determined, the vasodilatoryactivity generated at 1:500 and 1:250 was indistinguishable,indicating saturation in the amount of SNO-Hb produced (1-3)]. Afterresuspending RBCs in PBS (»750 ml),150 ml was used fordetermining NO levels and the remainder was used in bioassays.RBCs used in the canine study were depleted of SNO-Hb byovernight storage (up to 24 h) at 4°C; these RBCs were then mixedwith PBS (without NO) and gently aerated.

Bennet guerrero PNAS• Blood Donation and Processing. Subjects were asked to consumenothing by mouth after midnight before the donation. On arrival tothe donation site (DUMC Post Anesthesia Care Unit), using aseptictechnique and a blood pressure cuff, »500 ml of whole blood wascollected from a peripheral vein directly into a Pall MedicalLeukotrap WB System containing 70 ml of CP2D anticoagulant(containing 0.0156 M citric acid, 0.1227 M sodium citrate, 0.016 Mmonobasic sodium phosphate, and 0.257 M dextrose). Afterleukocyte depletion and centrifugation, packed RBCs wereresuspended in 110 ml of Nutricel [additive solution-3; AS-3]preservative solution. Each unit of RBCs was stored in a monitoredand alarmed refrigerator at 1-6°C. Aliquots of RBCs were withdrawnby using a sterile docking device (Sterile Tubing Welder TSCDmodel SC-201A; Terumo Medical Corp, Somerset, NJ) andtransferred on ice to the appropriate laboratories for analysis at: 3, 8,24, and 96 h, and 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 weeks.
