Transfusions with heated blood risk aluminium contamination
Patients who need transfusions with heated blood to avoid hypothermia may be exposed to high levels of aluminium.
This is due to aluminium heated plates in the device used during the medical procedure, according to latest research by anaesthetists.
Alarmed by the report, world leading authority on the toxicity of aluminium, Professor Chris Exley, reported in an article in the medical journal The Hippocratic Post as saying that regulators need to act now ‘to avoid a potentially future time bomb for those affected.’
