Separating this bleeding from surgical site bleeding can be difficult with potential for over transfusion of blood components, especially platelets. Overall, institutions vary in the percentage of patients who receive platelet transfusions, from less than 5% to greater than 80%. It is likely that some patients may benefit from these platelet transfusions. However, it is also likely that a substantial number do not benefit, resulting in blood component wastage. Modest postoperative normovolemic anemia (Hct 24-30; Hb 8-10 g/dl) is common and usually well tolerated, and the practice of routinely transfusing red cells to maintain the hematocrit greater than 30 (Hb > 10 g/dL) likely reflects a transfusion style.

However, the terminology is unlikely to change. 2. The Rhesus system antigens are expressed on a lipoprotein molecule present in the red blood cell membrane. Antibodies to Rhesus usually occur only with immune stimulation such as pregnancy or a previous transfusion, and spontaneous occurrence is rare. The antigen D within Rhesus is further complicated in that some individuals have fewer D antigen sites on the red cell membrane (called weak D) and others have an abnormal type of D (partial D). For transfusion purposes, weak D recipients will often type as Rhesus negative unless a more sensitive test is performed and will receive Rhesus (D) negative blood (Weak D donors will be typed as Rhesus positive by a blood center).

For transfusion purposes, weak D recipients will often type as Rhesus negative unless a more sensitive test is performed and will receive Rhesus (D) negative blood (Weak D donors will be typed as Rhesus positive by a blood center). However, partial D individuals usually type as Rhesus (D) positive. In some cases, they develop an antibody to the abnormal part of the D antigen, giving rise to an apparent paradoxical situation where a Rhesus positive subject develops anti-D.
