Neonatal Blood Transfusion

Blood Transfusions in Neonatal Care

Newborn blood transfusions are crucial for certain conditions, such as neonatal anaemia, reduced blood volume, or when there's a blood type mismatch with the mother. 

The transfusion begins by thoroughly screening the donated blood for safety and compatibility, ensuring it’s free from infections. Once approved, the blood is carefully and slowly introduced to the infant's bloodstream through an intravenous line. The baby's well-being is of utmost importance during this procedure; thus, their vitals are meticulously observed throughout. 

After the transfusion, the infant undergoes a period of observation to ensure there are no adverse reactions and to confirm that the transfusion has had its intended positive effects.
