We have ended up with an error in our program book.  

Is you are attending Session 7: Neonatal Transfusion with Dr. Paul Eastvold we have the incorrect objectives listed in the booklet.  Please see below for the accurate course description and objectives.


7. Neonatal Transfusion Practice Speaker: Dr. Paul Eastvold

Level of Instruction: Intermediate Sponsor: United Blood Services Contact Hours: 1.5


This lecture will cover most of the current transfusion practices in neonatology and will also cover some of the more contentious topics as politely as possible. Remember, blood is an organ a tissue in every right like the other tissues of the body, and it doesn’t like too many roller coaster rides (centrifugations) before it makes it to its destiny, the recipient


At the end of the session, the participant will be able to:

  • Cover the more accepted transfusion practices for neonates and pediatrics
  • Cover the science behind the reasons we should not be doing some of the things to blood products for neonates that we do
  • Come to the end of the lecture with a healthy respect for the fact that human blood is an organ and it doesn’t like being “messed around with” too much before it gets to its final destiny, the recipient
