Effect of prophylactic transfusion of stored RBCs on oxygen reserve in response to acute isovolemic hemorrhage in a rodent model

M S d'AlmeidaIan Chin-Yee


The storage of RBCs results in a time-related decline in 2,3 DPG that may reduce the ability to unload oxygen (O(2)) to tissue. The objective of this study was to compare the effect that transfusion of stored 2,3 DPG-depleted rat blood (7 days in CPDA-1) had on the O(2) reserve in conscious rats, with that of the transfusion of fresh blood (<2-hour storage). Anemic rats (Hb, 80 g/L) received either fresh packed RBCs or stored RBCs to raise Hb levels to 140 g per L. They then underwent isovolemic hemorrhage mimicking surgical blood loss to the point of O(2) supply dependency (OSD). Critical O(2) delivery (DO(2)crit), Hb concentration, and O(2) extraction at OSD were measured in a metabolic chamber. After transfusion, RBC DPG decreased by 50 percent in the stored-blood group, and the p50 value decreased by 5 mmHg (32.1 +/- 2.5 mmHg vs. 37.5 +/- 3.0). DO(2)crit was similar in the two groups (fresh blood: 2.79 +/- 0.44 mL/min x g(-1); stored blood, 2.99 +/- 0.76 mL/min x g(-1)). The critical Hb concentration at DO(2)crit was higher in the stored-blood group (44 +/- 4 g/L) than in the fresh-blood group (38 +/- 5 g/L); the cardiac index and O(2) extraction ratio in the two groups were not different. Under conditions of severe normovo...Continue Reading

Anemia develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia of inflammation (AI, also called anemia of chronic disease) is a common, typically normocytic, normochromic anemia that is caused by an underlying inflammatory disease. Here is the latest research on anemia.
