Thank you Jummy for that excellent summary of last week’s Medical Grand Rounds. I found Dr. Callum’s presentation to be incredibly enlightening. I had minimal prior knowledge of blood transfusion protocols and I learned a lot. I was particularly interested in the portion of the talk that discussed where transfusion medicine is headed in 2021. I am very interested in following the use of enzymes to convert types A and B blood to type O, as Jummy explained. I believe that this could be a particularly beneficial approach to maximize the use and availability of blood. I was also interested in the discussion regarding the use of computerized physician controls. This is a monitoring system that regulates the ordering of blood that can stop the user for a variety of reasons and require them to re-evaluate their order and confirm. I think that this programming could provide a way to minimize error and reduce the use of blood.
