Blood letting

Last Sunday, Assumption Parish had our quarterly blood letting program. It was perfectly suited for the Medical Mission we had in our hospital. As many patients scheduled for operations were required to have numerous blood products. Just like in the case of our patients who will undergo Mitral Valve Replacement, more or less they need to have 15 bags of PRBC, FFP, and Platelet Concentrate. They usually need to have lots of blood products becuase they will undergo open heart surgery and bleeding tendencies is very visible.
