Blood : Blood Preferable to use blood or plasma collected in citrate phosphate dextrose (CPD) < 72hrs old However in newborns with severe asphyxia or hydrops fetalis blood that is < 24 hrs old is preferable. Umbilical Central Catheters : Umbilical Central Catheters NRP Course Materials. www.aap.org/nrp/coursemats/coursemats_dvd10.html Exchange Transfusion : Exchange Transfusion Simple or Isovolumetric 2-Volume Exchange Transfusion : Simple or Isovolumetric 2-Volume Exchange Transfusion Normally used for hyperbilirubinemia Also for Hemolytic Disease (Rh incompatibility, ABO incompatibility, etc) Isovolumetric is preferred when there is cardiac insufficiency Hyperbilirubinemia : Hyperbilirubinemia Bilirubin ~ jaundice (physical finding) Bilirubin is a breakdown product of Red Blood Cells In newborns jaundice is very common Must be differentiated from pathologic jaundice Hyperbilirubinemia : Hyperbilirubinemia Hyperbilirubinemia : Hyperbilirubinemia The level of bilirubin that is dangerous changes as a function of: Infant’s age Illness Weight Hyperbilirubinemia : Hyperbilirubinemia First line therapy is phototherapy Goal of both phototheraphy and exchange transfusion is to prevent Kernicteris. Cerebral Palsy and other permanent neurological disorders. Partial Exchange in Severe Polycythemia : Partial Exchange in Severe Polycythemia Asymptomatic Hematocrit > 75% Symptomatic > 60-65% Polycythemia can cause Tachypnea Congestive heart failur Seizures Priapism Gangrene of an extremity Testicular infarction Retinopathy of prematurity Necrotizing enterocolitis/Ileus Acute renal failure Partial Exchange in Severe Polycythemia : Partial Exchange in Severe Polycythemia Exchange polycythemic blood for Normal Saline, Albumin, FFP. Volume of exchange (mL) = Blood Volume x Weight x (Observed Hct – Desired Hct) Observed Hct Partial Exchange for Severe Anemia : Partial Exchange for Severe Anemia Restore circulating Red Blood Cell volume without introducing too much fluid. Usually for patients who are not acutely anemic Acutely anemic patients need simple emergent transfusion They have had time to compensate due to a slower process Fetal-maternal transfusion/hemorrhage Twin-twin transfusion Partial Exchange for Severe Anemia : Partial Exchange for Severe Anemia Volume = Est. Blood Volume x Weight x (Hct desired – Hct observed) (70%-Hct observed) Complications of Exchange Transfusion : Complications of Exchange Transfusion Introduction of Infection Vascular complications from the Umbilical Central Catheters Hypoglycemia Coagulopathies Potentially reduce circulating platelets, clotting factors Electrolyte abnormalities Hypocalcemia, hyperkalemmia Metabolic acidosis Using non CPD blood or older stored blood. Metabolic Alkalosis Necrotizing enterocolitis Summary : Summary Exchange Transfusions are performed for many indications There are two types: 2-Volume Exchange Transfusion Simple or Isovolumetric Partial Exchange Transfusion You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
