🚨🩸“Every donation is critical and you can make a lifesaving difference.”…
This is what appears first on the American Red Cross website, experiencing, since January 2022, its first ever national blood crisis. At the same time, the French Blood Institution (EFS) announces that stocks have never been so low, 30% below their normal safety level.
Covid19 has tackled international blood reserves, lowering donation to a critically low level.
But the end of Covid19 crisis will not lead to the end of current worldwide blood crisis. Since 2010, the World Health Organization, the AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF BLOOD BANKS and the European Blood Alliance have regularly alerted on the increasing demand level and supply difficulties.
The need for alternatives to allogeneic blood transfusion has never been that high, and is often lifesaving for patients undergoing surgery.
🏩At i-SEP, we have developed same™ by i-SEP, the first ever intraoperative cell recovery device for autologous platelets and RBC to support hospitals in their Patient Blood Management program.
