PBM – Patient Blood Management Task Force

Patient blood management in cardiac surgery relies on a multidisciplinary and multifactorial approach aiming for a reduction in perioperative blood loss and allogeneic blood transfusions. In a joint effort the European Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesiologists (EACTA) and European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) initiated the elaboration of a European guideline on this topic in order to support current practice and summarize evidence for blood preservation techniques in cardiac surgery.
