  1. doi request reprint Predicting improvement in detection of bacteria in apheresis platelets by maintaining constant component sampling proportion
    Peter A Tomasulo
    Medical and Scientific Affairs, Blood Services, Inc, Scottsdale, AZ 85257, USA
    Transfusion 53:835-42. 2013
    ..The sensitivity of early testing varies with the percent of collection volume sampled. We applied the Poisson model to determine whether sampling larger volumes might increase detection at pertinent contamination levels...
  2. doi request reprint Interventions to reduce the vasovagal reaction rate in young whole blood donors
    Peter Tomasulo
    Blood Systems, Inc, Scottsdale, Arizona 85257, USA
    Transfusion 51:1511-21. 2011
    ..There have been multiple reports concerning the predictors of fainting reactions in blood donors, but few attempts to reduce the rates of fainting reactions with concomitant rigorous attempts to monitor the success of the interventions...
  3. doi request reprint Improving the performance of culture-based bacterial screening by increasing the sample volume from 4 mL to 8 mL in aerobic culture bottles
    Stephanie Souza
    United Blood Services Arizona, Scottsdale, AZ, USA
    Transfusion 52:1576-82. 2012
    ..This study compares the rate of capture of true-positive (TP) contaminations between aerobic culture bottles inoculated with either 4 or 8 mL of sample and assesses if a larger sample volume reduces time to detection...
  4. doi request reprint Delayed adverse reactions to blood donation
    Hany Kamel
    Blood Systems, Inc, Scottsdale, Arizona 85257, USA
    Transfusion 50:556-65. 2010
    ..Blood donation is safe, but a small proportion of donors have delayed and/or off-site reactions that have the potential to lead to serious injury. This retrospective study sought to identify risk factors for delayed reactions (DRs)...

    Leon L Su
    United Blood Services and Blood Systems, Scottsdale, Arizona and Blood Systems Research Institute, San Francisco, California, USA
    Transfusion 48:1842-52. 2008
    ..Collection of 7-day PLTs using two-bottle cultures began in April 2006. This study compares our experience using both systems...

    Wouter Wieling
    Department of Medicine, Academic Medical Centre, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    Transfusion 51:2727-38. 2011
    ..Finally, we propose an intervention (dietary replacement of salt lost with blood donation) that has not been applied in transfusion medicine previously but which has the potential to reduce risk...
