Core and surface temperatures in a red-blood-cell unit during storage and transport.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Temperature tracing of stored red-blood-cell concentrates (RBCs) is inevitable with respect to RBC quality control. RBC temperature, which should not exceed 10°C, is usually assessed by devices attached to the surface of the RBC pouch, assuming that surface temperature adequately represents the thermal state of RBC. We investigated… (More)
