Procedure Kit/Trays, Blood Transfusion, Exchange

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for repetitive removal of blood and replacement with transfused blood from a donor until most part of the patient's blood has been exchanged (i.e., exchange or exsanguination transfusion). Items in these kits usually include a stopcock extension tube, catheters (e.g., umbilical), syringes, and needles. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Exchange transfusion procedure kits and trays are mainly intended for counteracting the effects of serious jaundice (i.e., icterus) and/or other diseases in newborns; they are also used for other blood diseases such as sickle cell anemia. They are used in newborn, emergency, and intensive care areas in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
