Author
Abstract
Recommendations, which aim at standardising and rationalising clinical indications for the transfusion of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) in Belgium, were drawn up by a working group of the Superior Health Council. For this purpose the Superior Health Council organised an expert meeting devoted to "Transfusion Guidelines: Pathogen reduction, products and indications for the transfusion of plasma" in collaboration with the Belgian Haematological Society. The experts discussed the indications for the transfusion of FFP, pathogen reduction for FFP and the practical issues of administering FFP and plasma-derived concentrates. The recommendations formulated by the experts were validated by the working group with the purpose of harmonising FFP transfusion in Belgian hospitals.
