Blood Transfusion & Haematology


Nobel Blood Transfusion Service:

Nobel Hospital Pvt. Ltd. is introducing an advance Blood Transfusion Service for the first time in the history of Nepal. Nobel Blood Transfusion Service has passed all the eligibility guidelines as mandated by the Central Blood Bank, Kathmandu, Nepal and is working as a partner with central blood bank.

Blood transfusion service is a place where blood is collected from donors, typed, separated into components, stored and preserved for later use in blood transfusion to recipients. A blood transfusion service may be a separate free-standing facility or part of a larger laboratory in a hospital where proper testing is performed to reduce the risk of transfusion related events.

Separation of blood :

Typically, each donated unit of blood (whole blood) is separated into multiple components, such as red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Each component is generally transfused to a different individual, each with different needs.

Nobel hospital Blood Transfusion Service uses cell separation machine for blood donation rather than traditional manual method. This machine is able to collect particular blood component. For example if patient requires platelets, machine can be formatted to collect platelets only and rest of the component (RBC, WBC and Plasma) will be returned back to the donor where as in traditional method whole blood has to been removed from donor to extract platelets. A unit of Platelets collected through cell separation machine is equivalent to SIX Units of platelets extract from the whole blood. This machine is also performed to collect plasma (the liquid part of the blood) and granulocytes (while blood cells).

Advantages:

  1. Platelet donors can help patients by donating more units during each donation. A Platelet donate can donate platelets twice in a week (24 times in a year) whereas whole blood donor can donate blood once in three month (4 times in a year).This can help to reduce the scarcity of blood donors in Nepal.
  2. Only the blood components needed are collected and the other components are returned to the donor. For example: if a patient requires Platelets then only platelets are collected from the donor.
  3. Platelets derived from Apheresis process takes 60 to 90 mins. whereas platelets derived from whole blood takes 120 to 180 mins. This can help patients in emergency situation.
  4. A unit of Platelets derived from Apheresis process is equivalent to SIX Units of platelets derived from the whole blood. This help to lower the need of maximum donor.


Our Services:

  1. The Cell Separator Automated Machine is only available at Nobel Hospital in Nepal. (not in any other centers).
  2. The viral markers recommended by central blood bank and also pre procedure screening and medical examination of donors.
  3. Blood Transfusion patient in need of blood transfusion can come to Nobel Hospital and get transfused as required.
  4. Deliver the platelets to patients within 90mins.
  5. Storage of packed Red Cell, FFP, Platelets, Cryoprecipitate and all other blood components.
  6. Plasmapheresis for hematological disorders and auto immune disorders.


Blood Collection:

We collect blood from voluntary non remunerated donors only !


Plasmapheresis:

Plasmapheresis is the removal, treatment, and return of blood plasma from blood circulation. The procedure is used to treat a variety of disorders, including those of the immune system, such as myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, lupus, and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. During plasmapheresis, blood is initially taken out of the body through a needle of previously implanted catheter. Plasma is then removed from the blood by a cell separator.


Examples of diseases that can be treated with plasmaphereses:

Guillian-barre syndrome
 

  1. Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
  2. Goodpasture's syndrome
  3. Hyperviscosity syndromes:
  4. Cryoglobulinemia
  5. paraproteinemia
  6. Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
  7. Myasthenia gravis
  8. Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP)/ hemolytic uremic syndrome
  9. Wegener's granulomatosis
  10. Lambert-Eaton Syndrome
  11. Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS or APLS)
  12. Microscopic polyangiitis
  13. Recurrent focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis in the transplanted kidney
  14. Graves' disease in infants and neonates
  15. HIV- related neuropathy
  16. Pemphigus vulgaris
  17. HELLP Syndrome
  18. PANDAS syndrome
  19. Refsum disease
  20. Behcet syndrome
  21. Multiple sclerosis
  22. Rhabdomyolysis


Hematology Services:

Hematology Services provides multidisciplinary, compassionate care for the patients with a variety of cancers that develop in bone marrow, blood and lymph nodes, including leukemia, lymphoma, pre- leukemia and multiple myeloma. Patients with benign (noncancerous) blood disorders such as anemia, coagulation and thrombotic disorders, including hemophilia and deep vein thrombosis are also treated by Hematology Services.

We offer a full range of standard and innovative hematology treatments. We are in process to provide services of bone marrow transplantation. We also offer an in house hematopathology expert, a clinical laboratory that provides prompt test results and a research laboratory that allows patients access to novel treatment approaches. Because we are committed to finding new treatments and helping improve patient outcomes, our team treatments and helping improve patient outcomes, our team is also involved in ongoing clinical research projects. Patients with hematological disorders have been cared for, from diagnosis to cure.
