Heart to Heart #300-006-16

What really happens when a person decides to give blood?  When someone at the hospital needs a unit of blood, aren’t they just given a unit that was donated?  This course maps the process of recruitment of the donor all the way to transfusion of the patient.  The course explains, at a high level, what needs to happen in order for the patient to receive a unit of blood.  Each step, or “path”, of the process is intertwined and dependent upon the completion of other processes.

Blood Quality and Safety - Testing #300-005-15

Hundreds of units of blood and blood components are transfused to patients at Michigan Blood’s hospital partners every day.  The patients, their families and, for that matter, the general public all expect the blood to be safe and effective.  

To keep the blood supply as safe as we can, there are several safeguards that are in place to protect the donors who donate the blood and the patients who receive the blood.  This course focuses on the donated blood testing process.

The Apheresis Process #300-002-14

Apheresis is the process of drawing whole blood from a donor and passing it through a machine which separates it into its components.  The desired component(s) are collected and the rest of the blood is returned to the donor.  This course will explain the apheresis process, including donor requirements, setting up the Trima Accel system, including tubes, bags and cassette, the collection procedure, preparing the components for the laboratory, care of the donor after donation, and cleanup of Trima Accel after donation is complete.

Whole Blood Components 201 #300-004-14

Separating a single whole blood donation into its components is just the first step in the production of five blood products used by our hospital partners.  This module will explain the production of leukoreduced red blood cells, pooled platelets, cryoprecipitate, cryoprecipitate reduced plasma, and the process of blood product irradiation.  We will also discuss the storage, temperature and shelf life of these products.

A single whole blood donation can provide components for several patients.  This module will explain the process of whole blood separation into red blood cells, platelets and fresh frozen plasma, and will discuss the storage, temperature and shelf life requirements for each component.
