[What to do in case of adverse event in recipient at the French National Blood Service?].

Abstract : One of the main goals of haemovigilance is to gather and analyze adverse events in recipients of blood products in order to improve blood safety. The French National Blood Service has a specific role in the management of immediate adverse events: to alert to quarantine the potentially dangerous blood products from the same donation(s), to provide blood testing for the etiologic assessment and to give transfusion advice to patients. The updating of the recipient's computer file allows a better monitoring for both immediate and delayed adverse events. Finally, the French National Blood Service's correspondent of haemovigilance is responsible for donor's inquiries, especially in cases of transfusion related to bacterial contamination, severe allergy, suspicion of transfusion acute related lung injury and viral seroconversion. The management effectiveness for adverse events requires a strong collaboration between all members of the haemovigilance network.
