Background: Indiscriminate or no indication prescribed blood products can increase health care costs, transmission of infection, infusion-related complications and improper disposal of blood products and inappropriate distribution of blood products can reduce blood bank reserves.
Objective: This study was performed to determine the index of platelet concentrate transfusion in an emergency department.
Methods: A cross-sectional study was done on 28 patients admitted in the emergency department, Rasool Akram hospital, Tehran for one year (October, 2014-2015). Infusion index include crossmatch / transfusion ratio (C/T Ratio), transfusion ratio (T%) and transfusion index (TI), separately were identified. Also, the non-infusion or incomplete injection units were recorded. For data analysis student T-Test and analysis of variance and chi-square were used.
Findings: 17 (60.7%) cases were men and 11 (39.3%) were female with mean age 47.36±21.30 years. The most requests for platelet concentrate were pre-operation preparation (16 cases).  In 15 cases, 10 units of platelet concentrate was request for the each patient. A total of 249 units of platelet concentrate were requested for 28 patients, which 141 units were used (56.62%). Transfusion ratio, C/T ratio and TI were 71.42%, 1.76 and 5.03, respectively.
Conclusion: Based on the findings, the platelet concentrate transfusion indexes in the emergency department were acceptable and can be used as a suitable approach in the management of blood products in emergency departments of the hospital.
