Default Re: Blood Bank KGMC

The Transfusion Medicine Department at started initially as State Blood Bank.

It was established in 1942 as a blood bank in the premises of KGMC (King George's Medical University).

This blood bank has been presently upgraded to the Department of Transfusion Medicine by the University.

The blood bank was given the designation of "State of Art Model Blood Bank" because it had the authority to supply blood to any hospital of the state.

It became one of the eight of such "State of Art Model Blood Bank" in the country.

After starting of components PRBC, FFP, Platelets, Cryoprecipitate and Cryopoorplasma were supplied.

The Department has also started to provide Ieucoreduced blood to the patients.

Department of Transfusion Medicine has also succeeded in increasing its voluntary donation aided by the untiring efforts of various NGO's.

In order to upgrade the Department, the facility of EQUAS and counselling have been started.

The Department of Transfusion Medicine aims at changing the blood supply system.

They envisage a blood supply chain when blood will be provided to the patient only when it is needed.

The Department also aims to introduce NAT testing (Nucleic Acid Testing) for the blood units in an attempt to shorter the window period thus increasing the safety of blood.
