Surgery is associated with blood loss. Patients that are already anaemic before surgery have a higher risk of receiving a blood transfusion. Patient blood management focuses on avoiding blood transfusions by correcting iron deficiency anaemia before starting a surgical procedure, minimising blood loss during the surgery and optimising the iron deficiency anaemia treatment postoperatively.
