Blood Transfusion Filter is woven mesh made by polyester or nylon, screen-type filter, placed between product bag and patient. This filter is designed to protect the patients from potentially harmful microaggregate and non-blood component particulate matter. These filters removes the microaggregates such as platelet, leucocyte and fibrin aggregates during blood transfusion. Filtration is based on direct interception to retain particles and microaggregates, which are comprised of leucocytes, fibrin, and platelets that form during the storage of blood. The blood transfusion filter ranges in size from 10 to 160μm and can therefore pass through the 170μm clot screen present in blood administration sets.
Even using the blood transfusion filter, there are some problem which likely to occur, such as, allergic reactions, viruses and infection disease, fever etc. However, the likelihood of contracting infections from a blood transfusion is very low (varies with the infectious agent from 1 in 350,000 to 1 in 1 million), but can occur.
