Background and Objectives
The source of blood is human. The use of blood and blood requests are very important in saving life. The aim of this research was to evaluate the blood request and the use of blood in one of the clinical departments.
Materials and Methods
This was a cross-sectional descriptive study. During the 18 months, we observed 1097 patients with 1108 different surgeries and blood ordering (from March 2013 to Sep 2014). The data were analyzed with SPSS version 22.
Majority of the patients (50.95%) were within the age range of 26 to 40 years and 34.99%  within 41 to 60. From 1108 blood orders, 9747 units were cross matched out of which 1389 units (14.25%) were transfused.  The most common surgeries which needed blood were: hysterectomy (abdominal and vaginal) (34.27%), cesarean section (22.7%), and myomectomy (21.01%). In cesarean section, from 1780 ordering units, only 250 units of packed cell were transfused. In the emergency situation, O negative can be administered to any recipients; out of the 430 O negative ordered packed cell units cross matched for 42 recipients, only 52 units (12%) were transfused and 88% were left unused.
We observed the majority of blood units requested were left unused.
