Indication for calcium replacement after trans-fusion are all except:
|A||Routinely after every 2nd unit|
|B||Blood given at faster rate|
|C||Blood transfusion given to a patient suffering from liver disease|
|D||Neonates requiring transfusion|
|E||Massive blood transfusion|
Routinely after every 2nd unit
In older times there was routine practice to give calcium after every 2nd or 3rd unit but nowadays this : practice is not advocated, now the calcium should be given only if blood is given at faster rate (1 unit in less than 5-10 minutes) or excessive transfusion (massive transfusion) or if a patient is not able to metabolize citrate like in liver diseases and neonates.
