Background and purpose: Blood is a life saving product and has no equivalent. Limitation time for storing and cost of typing and cross matched in respect of lab equipment and personnel, may lead to importance of proper request and use of them.
Methods and materials: In a cross sectional descriptive study, 500 patients with elective surgery were participated. Variable and data collection were done with check list. Data analyzed with SPSS soft ware. The standard ratio of cross matched per transfused was less than 1/5 pack.
Results: Results shown that of 500 patients, the blood transfused only for 80(%16) of them. The mean of hemoglobin for patients who have transfused were 12/4. The mean of hemorrhage for patients who have transfused were 822 milliliters and for the rest were 424. The whole products which used were, 325 packs and 15 units were platelet and the rest were whole blood and packed cell.
