At Trinitas Regional Medical Center, we are committed to meeting the specialized needs of each patient. We understand that some patients prefer the option of therapy without blood transfusions. Our Bloodless Medicine and Surgery Program fills that need. Using an integrated team approach, our highly skilled surgeons, anesthesiologists, hematologists and pathologists along with other specialists and support staff combine to produce this invaluable new facet of patient care.

What is Bloodless Medicine and Surgery?
Bloodless medicine and surgery is a state-of-the-art approach to managing diseases and conditions while lowering and in many cases eliminating exposure to transfused blood. Specifically, a bloodless program utilizes a variety of techniques and resources to minimize blood loss, salvage and re-infuse as much of a patient's own blood as is possible thus ensuring maximum oxygen delivery to the cells and organs. It also involves the use of pharmaceuticals to maximize blood production - essentially using the patient's own body as a blood bank.

Bloodless medicine and surgery is accomplished by some of the following methods:

Patient identification at all points of entry

Minimal blood sampling



 

Effective use of recombinant DNA products that stimulate the bone marrow to produce red blood cells and improve clotting time





 

Use of additional hematopoietic (The formation of blood or blood cells in the body) therapies which serve to restore iron levels, with applications such as iron, folic acid, and ascorbic acid to facilitate iron absorption and stimulate the production of red blood cells

Minimally invasive surgery (lowers blood loss)

Acute normovolemic-hemodilution (lowers blood loss)


Why Would A Patient Want To Use A Bloodless Approach?
Trinitas provides this program as an option for patients who wish to avoid the use of donor blood during medical and surgical procedures. Some patients hold a religious conviction that prevents them from receiving blood transfusions. Others feel more comfortable knowing that with transfusion-free techniques, they avoid the risk of blood borne illnesses such as hepatitis or HIV. Whatever the reason, we respect this decision and feel privileged to be offering Elizabeth's only Bloodless Medicine and Surgery Program.

Which Medical Specialties Can Use A Bloodless Approach?
Thanks to advances in equipment, techniques and technology, Trinitas Regional Medical Center can safely and successfully provide non-blood medical and surgical care for a variety of specialties such as but not limited to:

Cancer/Cancer Surgery

Cardiology

Gastroenterology

General Surgery

Gynecology Surgery

Hematology

Intensive Care Management

Neurosurgery

Obstetrics

Orthopedics

Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat)

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Urologic Surgery

Vascular Surgery


Advanced Technology
Bloodless Medicine and Surgery uses tried and true minimally invasive techniques to reduce blood loss by:


 

Enhancing circulation of a patient's own blood through intravenous fluids called volume enhancers


 

Utilizing the pharmaceutical synthetic erythropoietin to stimulate the production of red blood cells by the bone marrow


 

Salvaging, filtering and recirculating the patient's blood in a continuous cycle by using an advanced cell saver system

Accelerating blood clotting during surgery with an argon beam coagulator

Elevating the body's oxygen level using the hyperbaric chamber

Tracking oxygen levels before, during and after surgery with skin monitors


 

Using proven techniques to lower the patient's blood pressure and temperature during surgery
