Blood & Blood Components Processing Facility
Fatimid transfuses blood and blood products to over 14,000 + registered underprivileged sick children patients who suffer from a painful and incurable life long disorder of Thalassaemia, Hemophilia and other genetic blood disorders.
Blood products needed for the treatment.
All Fatimid Centers have fractionation facilities for the following types of blood products:
- Packed red cells (PC-PRC) is transfused to raise Hemoglobin level and to treat Thalassaemia.
- Fresh frozen plasma (FFP) is transfused to treat coagulation factor deficiency diseases.
- Cryoprecipitate (CP) is transfused to treat Hemophilia, Von Wille-Brand disorders and fibrinogen deficiency disease.
- Cryosupernantent (CS) is transfused to treat Hemophilia B (factor IX) and other blood cloating disorders.
- Platelet concentrate (PLT) is transfused to treat patients who bleed repeatedly due to platelet function defect/ plate deficency.
Whole blood is used in very rare situations where both Hemoglobin and blood volume need to be replaced/increased (road traffic accidents).
The current concept is to use "COMPONENTS OF BLOOD" instead of the whole blood according to the specific indications.
