Blood & Blood Components

Fatimid transfuses blood and blood products to over 14,000 registered underprivileged sick children patients who suffer from a painful and incurable lifelong disorders of Thalassaemia, Hemophilia and other genetic blood disorders.

  • Packed red cells (PRBC) is transfused to raise haemoglobin level in Thalassaemia.
  • Fresh frozen plasma (FFP) is transfused to treat coagulation factor deficiency diseases.
  • Cryoprecipitate (CP) is transfused to treat Hemophilia A (factor VIII deficiency), Von Willebrand disorders and fibrinogen deficiency disease.
  • Cryosupernantent (CS) is transfused to treat Hemophilia B (factor IX deficiency).
  • Platelet concentrate (PLT) is transfused to treat patients who bleed repeatedly due to platelet function defect or thrombocytopenia.

Whole blood is used in very rare situations where both haemoglobin and blood volume need to be replaced/increased (Trauma/accidents).

The current concept is to use “COMPONENTS OF BLOOD” instead of the whole blood according to the specific indications.
