25.10: Protocol 000005 – blood component fate information

One data line structure is currently defined within this protocol (see Tables 25.13 and 25.14). The data line is a multiple occurrence line with an entry for each item in the message. The data line has a line type indicator in common with the previous protocols to allow for additional line types to be created if required. It is expected that this message will be generated daily and will include information on all units that are:

  • free for use
     
  • allocated to a patient (either directly or notionally)
     
  • marked as transfused or wasted in the period from the date the report was last gathered (minus 5 days) up until the present date.

This message will be used for all products with the exception of certain batched products (such as anti-D). Some batched products are excluded as each dose may not be allocated a unique unit number (platelet pools are not excluded).
