The Blood Service has just launched its updated mytransfusion.com.au website, with information about blood transfusion for patients and their families.
The website has been reviewed extensively and incorporates new features to provide clearer information about blood transfusion.
It explains the possible reasons for transfusion, the different types of transfusion, the risks and benefits, why different blood components are used, and what patients can expect.
The website also includes questions for patients to ask their doctor, and ways patients can reduce their chance of needing a transfusion.
The upgraded site is an informative resource for patients and those who would like to learn about blood transfusion.
