TRANSFUSIONS IN THE CRITICALLY ILL: WHERE DO WE STAND?  

Keynote Presentation

In his Keynote Lecture, Jean-Louis Vincent will update us on the most recent data from randomised control trials on transfusion strategies in the ICU and summarise the key points to consider when deciding how to move forward with individual patient treatment.

 

 
RCTs in which transfusions are given based on haemoglobin levels are not very useful in critically ill patients. Decisions to transfuse should be individualised, based not only on the haemoglobin concentration, but also on other variables, which are not always easy to define/identify.
