Good Practice Paper Preoperative patient blood management during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic

Dr Alwyn Kotze presents a short podcast on the BSH Good Practice Paper Preoperative patient blood management during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic

The focus of this good practice paper is to highlight the challenges in provision of elective surgical services while SARS-CoV-2 remains prevalent in communities.

Dr Kotze discusses the good practice paper in three sections:

1) How the good practice paper is produced and which evidence is taken in account doing so

2) How we think pandemic times have changed our pathways especially concentrating on remote working and how we believe teams can and should prioritise different aspects inherent in a patient blood management programme. 

3) Clinical subject matter pandemic specific on the following:

  • management of preoperative anaemia 
  • bleeding risk assessment and investigation
  • medication management of trying to reduce bleeding

Dr Alwyn Kotze is a Consultant Anaesthetist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Dr Kotze's clinical practices is a mixture of organ transplantation specifically liver transplants and providing other anaesthesia for surgeries.

Guideline for diagnosis and management of hairy cell leukaemia (HCL) and hairy cell variant (HCL-V)

Guideline for diagnosis and management of hairy cell leukaemia (HCL) and hairy cell variant (HCL-V)

February 21, 2021

Dr Nilima Parry-Jones presents a podcast on the Guidelines for diagnosis and management of hairy cell leukaemia (HCL) and hairy cell variant (HCL-V).

Hairy cell leukaemia (HCL) is an uncommon, chronic B cell leukaemia, first reported as a distinct entity in the 1950s.12 HCL accounts for 2% of lymphoid leukaemias, with a male predominance and median age at diagnosis of 58 years. Classical HCL and its variant form (HCL‐V) are now regarded as separate entities,3 with different cytological, haematological and immunophenotypic features. BRAF V600E mutation, present in virtually 100% of cases of classical HCL,4 is regarded as a disease‐defining event, and is absent in HCL‐V.

Dr Parry- Jones discusses the guideline in three parts:

Part 1: Clinical and laboratory features.

Part 2: Diagnostic tests and differential diagnosis including the use of molecular genetics.

Part 3: Therapeutics and response assessment.

Dr Nilima Parry-Jones is a Consultant Haematologist at the Aneurin Bevan Local Health, Wales.
