A randomised controlled trial of intraoperative blood-cell salvage during Caesarean section in women at risk of haemorrhage

Donated blood is a scarce resource that is essential for major surgical procedures. Donor blood transfusion carries significant risks, which intraoperative blood-cell salvage (IOCS) has the potential to avoid. IOCS collects a patient's own blood lost at operation, processes it and returns it to their circulation. Its use in Caesarean section has not yet been examined adequately, in part because of unfounded fears about contamination of salvaged blood with amniotic fluid. This study will assess if IOCS during Caesarean section reduces the need for donor blood transfusions.
