Allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT) is the most common and accepted method of blood transfusion.
Risk Factors for Allogeneic Blood Transfusion. By univariate analysis, the preoperative factors that were significantly associated with BT were weight, BMI, preoperative ROM, Hb, INR, creatinine clearance and albumin (p < 0.15 all) (Table 2).
This encourages physicians to explore blood conservation measures that can reduce the need for allogeneic blood transfusion. At the same time, priming of conventional crystal solution in CPB will inevitably cause serious hemodilution and reduction of plasma colloid osmotic pressure, which will produce adverse effects (1-4).
Demographic data, BMI, preoperative diagnosis, type of anesthesia, medical comorbidities, preoperative autologous blood donation, allogeneic blood transfusion, and pre- and post-operative complete blood count (CBC) including hematocrit (Hct); and Hb levels were evaluated.{Table 1}

Other outcomes were incidence of acute renal failure (as defined by the original study), total blood loss during the study period, proportion of patients requiring allogeneic blood transfusion, volume of blood transfused (assuming one unit = 300 ml), incidence of allergic reactions and length of hospital stay.
It is worth noting that autologous transfusion is costly, presents several logistical problems and is not without some of the risks associated with allogeneic blood transfusion, including the risk of incompatible transfusion.
