Risk Behavior among Ineligible Blood Donors in a Blood Transfusion Center (Burkina Faso)

J Hematol Blood Transfus Disord 4: 015

Journal of Hematology, Blood Transfusion and Disorders

The aim of the study was to compare the prevalence of human
immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B and C viruses among two blood
donor populations.
A cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted over a sixmonth
period. It involved blood donors recruited at fixed and mobile
collection sites. Donors were classified into two groups: eligible and
ineligible blood donors. Ineligible donors were excluded at the end of
the medical interview for reasons of risky behavior. In both groups,
the serological markers of the human immunodeficiency virus and
hepatitis B and C viruses were searched.
Out of a total of 10,814 blood-donation candidates, 11%
(1,191/10,814) were ineligible after the pre-donation medical interview
and the risk behaviors represented 4.5% (484/10,814). The
median age was 26 years. Donors from mobile sites accounted for
72.8% versus 27.2% for those from the fixed site. Depending on the
collection site, there were no significant differences in the serological
markers of HIV and hepatitis B and C viruses between eligible and
ineligible donors.
Serological results between fixed and mobile sites are similar.
Strengthening selection in mobile sites seems more relevant. While
retention of old donors is required, continued counseling among

Improving Blood Transfusion Safety: A Survey on the Knowledge and Attitudes of Health Professionals in Blood Transfusion at the Yalgado Ouedraogo University Hospital Center, Burkina Faso

Hematol Transfus Int J 2017 4(1): 00070

Hematology and Transfusion International Journal

Introduction: National guidelines for best transfusion practices have been disseminated so that their recommendations can be applied to any health facility. This work was part of the approach to promoting transfusion safety. Its objective was to study the knowledge and attitudes of the clinical healthcare professionals in the Yalgado Ouédraogo University Hospital in the field of blood transfusion.
Materials and Methods: The survey-type study was conducted in four clinical departments of the Yalgado Ouédraogo University Hospital Center based on a questionnaire. It involved professionals practicing blood transfusion. The anonymous questionnaire was filled out by the participants themselves. There were multiple-choice questions and open-ended questions.
Results: The participation rate was 64% (192/300). The respondents had an average of 7 years of professional practice and worked in departments such as gynecology and obstetrics, pediatrics, nephrology and medical emergencies respectively in 48%, 26%, 16% and 10% of the cases. The study showed that transfusion therapy is a daily practice in clinical departments. However, knowledge is insufficient and compliance with transfusion best practices is limited.
Conclusion: In order to sensitize health professionals on the particular issue of blood transfusion and to improve their knowledge/skills, continuous training of health workers involved in blood transfusion should be an integral part of the action plans of the medical facilities.

Preparation of packed red blood cells in low income countries: efficacy of whole blood settling method in Burkina Faso

Int J Blood Transfus Immunohematol 2016;6:20–29

International Journal of Blood Transfusion and Immunohematology

Aim: This study aims to describe the
characteristics of the red cell concentrates
(RCCs) produced by whole blood settling
in Burkina Faso. Methods: We conducted a
cross-sectional study in the blood centers of
Ouagadougou and Koudougou between 12th
February and 15th March 2015. 427 blood units
selected at Koudougou and divided into three
groups were processed by settling method over
three durations (methods I = 36–48 h, II = 48–72
h and III = 72–96 h). Other 139 units selected at
Ouagadougou were processed by centrifugation
(method IV). The RCCs units’ characteristics
were described by the mean of their hematocrit,
volume, hemoglobin level and content. The
residual plasma level, the hematocrit yield and
the hematocrit concentration ability (ability
of method to raise hematocrit in comparison
with whole blood) have been used to assess
methods efficacy. Results: The volume and

hemoglobin content of overall units met
standard requirements. 2.1%, 14.2% and 27.7% of
units respectively issued from methods I, II, III
had hematocrit over 50%. The average volume
(mL) was 372.88, 357.91, 350.30 and 332.26
respectively for method I to IV (p<0.05). The
mean hematocrit (%) was respectively 45.42,
47.41, 48.24 and 62.28 (non-significant difference
between methods II and III). The hematocrit
concentration ability was respectively 1.14, 1.22,
1.24 and 1.51 and the proportion of residual
plasma 0.39, 0.33, 0.30 and 0.09. Conclusion:
The RCCs obtained by settling method did not
meet all standards. But we can hypothesize
that they would be more effective and safe for
patients. However, it is necessary to undertake
further studies to verify it.
