Makeshift cell-saver
Today we had a young woman arrive with abdominal distention and pain. Israel Jombo, CMO NCH, made the correct diagnosis of ruptured ectopic pregnancy. Her Hct was 10%. We immediately operated, ligated the affected tube and cell-saved her blood using a scoop, funnel and blood bag. We were able to salvage 4 units of blood.

Saved blood!
