Guidelines for the transfusion of platelets
Author
Abstract
Recommendations aiming at standardising and rationalising clinical indications for the transfusion of platelets in Belgium were drawn up by a working group of the Superior Health Council. To this end the Superior Health Council organised an expert meeting devoted to "Guidelines for the transfusion of platelets" in collaboration with the Belgian Hematological Society. The experts discussed the indications for platelet transfusions, the ideal platelet concentrate and the optimal platelet transfusion therapy. The recommendations prepared by the experts were validated by the working group with the purpose of harmonising platelet transfusion in Belgian hospitals.
