Autotransfusion – Eliminate the Need for Patient Blood Transfusions

When your patients shed blood during the surgical process, in the past it would typically go to waste. Then they might have to endure one or more additional blood transfusions in order to make it through the surgery.

However, our autotransfusion services collect the bloodshed, mix it with an anticoagulant, filter and wash it, and then run it through a centrifuge before finally returning the blood to the patient.

This process results in a number of benefits for your patients:

Blood borne disease, incompatibility, and the potential for allergic reaction are eliminated

The processed blood is immediately available to the patient

Reduces exposure to HIV and Hepatitis B

Avoids any difficult with religious beliefs rejecting the use of blood transfusions

The immunosuppressive effects which are present with the transfusion of homologous blood, are completely avoided


At Keystone Perfusion Services, we help salvage blood and other patient cells for most surgical specialties, including:
