Abstract

A recent UK study that piloted the use of a group ORhD negative Whole Blood (WB) component demonstrated that due to its short shelf-life (14 days) and limited use to pre-hospital trauma patients only, component wastage was high. Reducing component wastage is essential for the future feasibility of this component.
Aim: Examine the trade-off between component wastage due to time expiry and unmet demand using simulation methods.
