BACKGROUND We evaluated the potential for radiofrequency (RF) transponder microchips to standardize and document key steps in the blood collection and transfusion process. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Using the blood center's standard operating procedures for blood collections, we programmed a laptop computer and 10 multiwrite 256-byte RF microchips to prompt operators to enter data for key steps in blood collection. Before collections, RF microchips were attached to blood collection sets at the… CONTINUE READING
