Welcome to the Patient Blood Management Program

The Perioperative Patient Blood Management Program (PPBMP) at London Health Sciences Centre is part of Surgery Services.

The purpose of PPBMP is to help patients who will be having an operation, to decrease or completely avoid the need for blood transfusion.

The PPBMP team includes your surgeon, anesthesiologists, hematologists, as well as health professionals from the Preadmission Clinic, Surgical Preparation, Operating Room, Post-Anesthetic Recovery, Surgery Floors, Pharmacy, Intravenous Therapy Clinics, and Blood Transfusion Laboratory.

The PPBMP nurses are your main contact and they will organize this part of your care.

This site is created to help you understand what patient blood management is, and how specific treatments can benefit your health as you prepare for, and recover from, your operation.
