      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      Red blood cell use in the United States expanded rapidly from 1994 to 2008, as per capita use increased from 42.0 to 48.9 units per 1,000 individuals. Evidence suggests a high rate of unnecessary transfusions. Since 2008 blood use has plummeted by >20% as hospitals recognize the evidence for better patient outcomes with conservative blood use. This program will promote the transfusion of fewer blood products for more appropriate, evidence-based indications, promising better patient outcomes and more efficient use of healthcare resources.
