AM21-78: Building the Pediatric Transfusion Medicine Evidence Base: New Insights from Database Research

Oct 19, 2021 9:00pm ‐ Oct 19, 2021 10:00pm

Credits: None available.


Pediatric transfusion medicine is increasingly being recognized as an area that could benefit from additional study independent of adult data. However, few databases prior to the Recipient Epidemiology and Donor Evaluation Study-IV-P (REDS-IV-P) have been designed specifically to capture such data. This session will highlight pediatric transfusion medicine specific lessons learned from databases designed for other purposes, including the Kids’ Inpatient Database (KID), the Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS), the American College of Surgery National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) Database, and the REDS-III Database. The session will also touch on the limitations of these types of existing databases and will highlight data fields that would optimally be captured in future databases to inform practice.
