My name is Nour AlMozain and I serve as a hematopathology, transfusion medicine, and apheresis consultant in the Laboratory and Blood Bank departments at King Saud University Medical City (KSUMC) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It is one of the largest academic hospitals in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. I supervise a large donor center that collects around 70-100 whole blood and apheresis platelets per day. I oversee the blood component manufacturing process, ensuring that blood products meet the quality of national and international standards. I also lead the inventory management process, always ensuring that blood requisitions meet patient blood management recommendations and local hospital policy guidelines. In addition, I review and report transfusion reactions and help the blood bank scientists in dealing with pre-transfusion testing. Our department provides a wide range of therapeutic apheresis procedures performed by our apheresis nurses, including: therapeutic plasma exchange, red cell exchange, and stem cell collection. My role is to provide consultations for these patients and help the primary teams tailor the appropriate management plan.Continue reading
