Risk Factors for Mechanical Hemolysis of Red Cells During Blood Infusion

Purpose:

To identify risk factors for mechanical hemolysis during infusion of packed red blood cells.

Specialty:

Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine

Objective:

risk factors

ICD-10:

C96.9, D50-D53, D55-D59, D60-D64, D70, R57.1
