Generally, transfusion is rarely indicated when Hb >10 g/dL and is almost always indicated in when Hb level < 6 g/dL
The determination of transfusion in patients whose Hb is 6-10 g/dL should be based on any ongoing indication of organ ischemia, the rate and magnitude of any potential or actual bleeding and the patient’s intravascular volume status.
Before use, should be thawed in warm water which between 30°C to 37°C.
Higher temperatures will destroy clotting factors and proteins.
Once thawed, to be infused immediately (best within 6hr) or re-stored at 1-6C for up to 24 hours, which will be relabeled as Thawed Plasma, and to be used as a source of stable coagulation factors for up to 5 days
