Infusion & Transfusion - Important Treatments in Veterinary Medicine
Infusion and transfusion in veterinary medicine are regularly carried out, just as is the case in human medicine. While liquids are intravenously supplied to the organism during infusions, in order to administer medicine, transfusion serves to replace blood lost during accidents or operations with donated blood.
Infusions in Large and Small Animal Medicine
In circumstances of shock and other impairments of the cardiovascular system, infusion therapy is carried out to reestablish or stabilise the vital functions. If the animal has been suffering from diarrhea or vomiting for a longer period of time, then substitution therapy can bring the animal's nutrient and mineral supply back into balance. In the case of a hypovolemic shock from heavy blood or plasma loss, volume subsitition therapy with isotonic saline solution is administered, as well as a transfusion of blood plasma and erythrocyte concentrates.
Transfusions in Veterinary Medicine
The transfusion (blood transfusion) describes an infusion where donor blood is given to another patient. Should a patient have lost such a high amount of blood to put him in a life-threatening situation, transfusion therapy is applied. The donated blood is usually prepared so that only the elements needed by the recipient can be transfused. Whole blood donations are more seldom done these days, as the shelf life of the conserved blood is quite shorter. Plasma and erythrocytes, as well as thrombocytes, can be stored separate from one another, which makes utilisation of the plasma possible after even several months. With cats, a blood type determination should most certainly be carried out prior to transfusion. Kidney insufficiency or anoemias can warrant transfusion therapy for cats.
