CLAIRE ATTERBURY, SPECIALIST NURSE, QUEEN ELIZABETH HOSPITAL, KING'S LYNN, NORFOLK

It is vital to observe a patient undergoing a blood transfusion, both to assess his/her general well-being and to note any signs of a transfusion reaction. These include feelings of unease, lumbar pain and chest pain. It is also important to inform the patient of the clinical signs of a transfusion reaction and to emphasise the importance of reporting any signs to the nurse.
