cryoprecipitate

 [kri″o-pre-sip´ĭ-tāt]
any precipitate that results from cooling, sometimes specifically the one rich in coagulation factor VIII obtained from cooling of blood plasma and used in treatment of hemophilia A (see antihemophilic factor).

cry·o·pre·cip·i·tate

(krī'ō-prē-sip'i-tāt),
Precipitate that forms when soluble material is cooled, especially with reference to the precipitate that forms in normal blood plasma that has been subjected to cold precipitation and is rich in factor VIII.

cryoprecipitate

/cryo·pre·cip·i·tate/ (-pre-sip´ĭ-tāt) any precipitate that results from cooling, sometimes specifically the one rich in coagulation factor VIII obtained from cooling of blood plasma.

cryoprecipitate

[-prisip′itāt]
1 any precipitate formed on cooling of a solution.
2 a preparation rich in factor VIII needed to restore normal coagulation in hemophilia. It is collected from fresh human plasma that has been frozen and thawed.

When the 31st CSH deployed to Iraq in 2010, it stocked only 180 units of RBC, 160 units of FFP, and 90 units of cryoprecipitate (Luschinski, 2011).
These whole blood units yielded WBD components, including 80,431 allogeneic RBC units, 32,753 individual platelet units, 47,055 plasma units, and 4,615 cryoprecipitate units.
The patient received a massive transfusion (16 units of red cell concentrate, 15 units of fresh frozen plasma and 2 units of platelets; cryoprecipitate was not available) intraoperatively, and in addition, tranexamic acid, conjugated equine oestrogen (Premarin) and desmopressin were administered.
We're supporting patients with hemophilia by harvesting cryoprecipitate (frozen blood product prepared from plasma) for them and allocating it for free.
A further 4 units of blood, 4 units of FFP, 1 pool of platelets and 2 units of cryoprecipitate were transfused.
Cryoprecipitate and fresh frozen plasma are the other options, when fibrinogen concentrates are unavailable and only in urgent conditions (10, 11).
During that period of time, the patient received different blood components such as; 6 units of packed red blood cells, 8 units of fresh frozen plasma, 8 units of platelets, and 6 units of cryoprecipitate.
Apart from blood, DBDC is seeing an increase in collections of overall blood products as well, including packed cells (PC), fresh frozen plasma (FFP), cryoprecipitate (CRYO), and single donor platelets (SDP).
There has been an overall increase in the collection of blood products including packed cells (PC), fresh frozen plasma (FFP), cryoprecipitate (CRYO), and single donor platelets (SDP).
Packed red blood cells may need to be issued, fresh frozen plasma and cryoprecipitate need to be thawed, and platelets may also need to be issued.
In total, four units of cross-matched red blood cells, three bags of pooled platelets, seven units of cryoprecipitate and 15 ml/kg of flesh frozen plasma were given to provide adequate haemostasis for chest closure.
