BLOOD COMPONENTS IN PNEUMATIC TUBE SYSTEM - THE WAY TO GO?
2016 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Time can be a crucial factor when patients are in need of blood components, it is therefore warranted to examine if the pneumatic tube system (PTS) at Sundsvall hospital can be used to transport blood components. This study had two purposes; to investigate whether PTS- transportation of erythrocytes and platelets were possible, without hemolysis rising above the recommended level and with sustained levels regarding pH, glucose and platelet count (PLT). The second purpose was to examine if the levels mentioned above were affected by the platelets being stored for 1-7 days.On day zero, whole blood was collected from donors in accordance with the National Board requirements. After one hour in room temperature on a cooling plate, the blood was centrifuged and separated with Compomat G5 which produced the three different blood components; erythrocytes, plasma and buffy coat. After overnight storage, five AB0-identical buffy coats were pooled together with IntersolTM solution forming a platelet unit, which was separated into four subunits. One subunit represented the control group and the others represented day 2, 5 and 7 in which pH, glucose and PLT were analyzed before and after PTS-transport. Erythrocyte suspensions were used to calculate any hemolysis due to PTS- transport. The results showed that the only statistically significant difference was on day 2 in PLT. However, the results were still within the recommended levels and thereby without any clinical significance. In conclusion, both erythrocytes and platelet concentrates can be transported in the pneumatic tube without any parameters exceeding the recommended values.
