Patients with cirrhosis are often transfused with platelets and plasma, yet the optimal role of these blood products is often poorly understood by ordering providers. This activity reviews the variety of plasma and platelet products available for transfusion, explores the role of plasma and platelet transfusion in stable, nonbleeding patients with cirrhosis, and discusses options to maintain a platelet inventory that is adequate to support their patientsâ€™ needs while minimizing wastage of unused units.
This clinical pathology activity is intended for pathologists.
