Medina's Tip of the day!


What are the risks of NOT having a blood transfusion when is required?

When our bodies have had lost so many red blood cells, and at the same time, our body is not getting enough oxygen, we run the risk of damaging our vital organs such as the brain or heart.
Blood transfusions are extremely necessary to prevent such damage, which can cause serious injury, permanent handicap or death.

Your surgeon will recommend you to have a 911 blood transfusion if your hemoglobin levels have dropped after surgery. This can happen because of excessive bleeding on surgery, and also depends on each body. Remember "Safety First".
Love. Dr. Medina
