Hello all. Thanks for providing a forum such as this for the advancement of bloodless surgery.
My first post and reason for posting is 2 fold.
I work at the local hospital as a Ward Manager on an acute colo-rectal Surgical ward, and we were fortunate in that 2 years ago the local congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses donated a blood cell saver machine to the hospital. I was dismayed to learn that due to "cost" this as far as I am aware, has not been utilised in the way that it could have been. Has anyone got any further information on Cell Saver machines and usage of.
Secondly having a JW background myself (My mother is JW and I was raised in this faith) I would be extremely interested to know of areas in the UK that specialise in Bloodless Surgery......does anyone have a list of co-operating hospitals?
Thanks again, and good to be here!
