Abstract

With the development of blood transfusion, adverse effects occur decreasingly, while people know the blood transfusion deeper and deeper. When medical biomaterials indirectly or directly contact to the blood, they may act with the platelet, erythrocytes, leucocytes, and plasma protein so as to cause thrombosis, hemolysis, complement system activation, and changes of formed elements. Blood compatibility is an important index to evaluate biological action of medical biomaterials. This study was designed to introduce the research development of blood transfusion and the reason of wide application of self-blood transfusion so as to explain the connotation, clinical application, and adverse effects of the three self-blood transfusion ways.
