Are you coming into hospital for surgery? Are you concerned about losing or receiving blood? Relax - we have the answer!
Cell Salvage is a process using a special machine that is operated by a healthcare professional to catch any blood that you may lose during your operation. Upon collection your blood is washed with a simple saline solution and is spun to remove any waster products.
After this process you get back nice new clean blood but it is your own. You can therefore have complete peace of mind about the blood that you have received.
If you are interested in finding out more information about Cell Salvage at Spire Bristol Hospital, please ask your Consultant Surgeon or contact our experts in the theatre department on 0117 980 4060.
