Autotransfusion is a process when a person receives their own blood for a transfusion, instead of banked donor blood, which can be costly. Autotransfusion is considered when blood loss from a clean, surgical wound is in excess of 20% or more. During the autotransfusion process, blood is salvaged, processed, and reinfused to the patient without complications. Autotransfusion is the safest form of blood transfusion a patient can receive.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? From products to equipment to personnel, PerStat is your answer to cardiac perfusion and autotransfusion needs. Autotransfusion concentrates red blood cells free of activated platelets, activated clotting factors, activated compliments, extracellular potassium, and free hemoglobin. This process holds no risk of infectious disease transmission, and transfusion reactions. Since autotransfusion remains an immediate source of autologous blood, it is accepted by Jehovah's Witnesses. Autotransfusion is used in General, Orthopedic, and Trauma Surgery. PLATELET GEL SERVICES Platelet gel is an autologous source of a concentrated mix of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), along with transforming growth factor-beta (TGF). When used in surgery, operations, post-operative procedures, or wound healing, platelet gel: improves healing time, decreases pain, decreases the risks of infection, and promotes bone regeneration. Platelet Gel applications can be used in: Cardiovascular, Thoracic, Trauma, Transplant, Urology, Plastic Repair, Head and Neck; Ear and Throat, Oral, Central Nervous System; Nerve Repair, Gastrointestinal, and Orthopedic surgeries. EQUIPMENT RENTAL PerStat can provide perfusion, autotransfusion, platelet gel, and IABP equipment rental at an affordable price.
