Blood and Blood Product Apps
Patient Blood Management Guidelines
FREE. Only available to ipad. This app has been produced by the National Blood Authority and comprises of six evidence based modules containing recommendations and practice points to guide clinical decisions for patients requiring blood products. The modules are: Critical Bleeding/Massive Transfusion (most ED relevant), Perioperative Care, Medical, Critical Care, Obstetrics and Paediatrics/neonates. Each guideline poses a number of clinical questions to guide the reader through the text. There is a handy quick link to a summary of recommendations and practice points (only 4 pages for the Critical Bleeding module) and pdfs of management templates, such as the Massive Transfusion Guideline, that can be attached to email through the Supporting Materials section. Links to the National Blood Authority website and the BloodSafe elearning modules transform this app into comprehensive learning package. Highly recommended.
