Hemodynamic Effects of Stored Blood Transfusion in Intensive Care Patients

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:17th Jan 2014

The investigators hypothesize that transfusion of one unit of red blood cells stored under standard conditions in intensive care patients will increase pulmonary arterial pressure and pulmonary vascular resistance to a greater extent than will one unit of fresh red blood cells.
