Abstract: Increasingly complicated surgeries are being performed on neonatal and pediatric patients. Provision of a safe and adequate blood supply is essential for the success of many of these surgeries. Depending on the clinical situation, autologous and/or allogeneic blood may be used. However, in all cases, every attempt should be made to minimize the number of donor exposures to reduce the risk of transfusion transmitted infections. Transfusion of neonatal and pediatric patients requires additional considerations too, such as the risk of graft vs host disease, cytomegalovirus infection, the effects of various preservative anticoagulant solutions, electrolyte levels during blood storage, and wheather or not leukoreduced components are indicated.
