Zehnder, L; Schulzki, T; Goede, J S; Hayes, J; Reinhart, W H (2008). Erythrocyte storage in hypertonic (SAGM) or isotonic (PAGGSM) conservation medium: influence on cell properties. Vox Sanguinis, 95(4):280-287.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Prolonged red blood cell (RBC) storage may be associated with increased post-transfusion morbidity and mortality. A contributing factor is RBC storage lesions. We analysed the role of additive conservation solutions, either hypertonic or isotonic, on such cell properties. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After blood donation in citrate-phosphate-dextrose as an anticoagulant, 10 RBC units were stored with saline-adenine-glucose-mannitol (SAGM; 376 mOsm/l) and 10 units with phosphate-adenine-glucose-guanosin-saline-mannitol (PAGGSM; 285 mOsm/l). Measurements were made on days 1 and 42 of storage. RESULTS: The mean cellular volume measured by centrifuged microhaematocrit increased from 87.6 +/- 3.1 fl to 100.7 +/- 4.3 fl in PAGGSM and to 92.2 +/- 2.5 fl in SAGM (P < 0.001) on day 1, after 42 days it was 95.8 +/- 4.0 fl and 93.8 +/- 3.9 fl, respectively. Spontaneous haemolysis and osmotic fragility were lower after storage in PAGGSM. Both additives showed a similar degree of echinocytosis, decreased RBC aggregability and deformability, and increased RBC suspension viscosity after storage. CONCLUSIONS: The isotonic PAGGSM prevented the initial RBC swelling caused by citrate-phosphate-dextrose less than hypertonic SAGM, but reduced the spontaneous haemolysis rate and osmotic fragility after 42 days of storage. All other parameters, such as echinocytosis, decreased RBC deformability and aggregability, and increased blood viscosity was similar for both additive solutions and remained a major problem of blood banking.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
