Background: Orthopedic procedures on areas of the body where tourniquet application is not possible, such as the shoulder, is usually accompanied by significant bleeding in addition to a higher need for blood transfusion. Therefore, packed cell units are generally reserved prior to these kinds of procedures, however, not all of those are transfused during surgery. The waste of unused blood units takes a lot of money, time, and energy of the blood bank staff. In this study, we evaluated the average blood units reserved and consumed for elective shoulder surgeries to determine the C/T ratio (crossmatch/transfusion).
