Management of anaemia and haematinic deficiencies in pregnancy and in the post-partum period: NATA consensus statement

 

This multidisciplinary consensus statement, which was published online in Transfusion Medicine on July 19 with open access, provides recommendations on the management of anaemia and haematinic deficiencies in pregnancy and in the postpartum period as part of patient blood management (PBM) in obstetrics.

It was developed by NATA in collaboration with the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG).

The recommendations in this consensus statement are intended for use by clinical practitioners managing perinatal care of women in all settings, and by policy-makers in charge of decision making for the update of clinical practice in health care establishments.
