Optimization of RBC Transfusion Practices

The de novo systematic review synthesizing the current literature in the area, concentrating on all behavior modification interventions targeting RBC transfusion practices, is useful as healthcare organizations respond to meet recent RBC transfusion guideline recommendations.

The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of behavior modification interventions that change RBC transfusion practices, specifically, the effects of interventions on the proportion of patients transfused, as well as patient and healthcare system outcomes.

Transmission Electron Microscope Measures The Structure Of A Material

Researchers have found a way to harness the power of Transmission Electron Microscope(TEM), which is used to measure the structure of a material at the highest possible resolution determining the 3-D position of every individual atom. Understanding the microscopic structure of a material is key to understanding how it functions and its functional properties. Advances in fields like materials science have increasingly pushed abilities to determine these features to even higher resolutions.
