This live webinar will bring together a panel of patient blood management (PBM) and anesthesiology experts for an important discussion on the increasing relevance of PBM and continuous hemoglobin monitoring in navigating current global blood shortages.

Experts will share effective strategies for mitigating challenges related to blood shortages and offer suggestions on how PBM stakeholders can advocate for a decrease in unnecessary blood use.

The discussion will also cover the panelists’ real-life experiences managing blood utilization in their practices and how they have supported clinicians in implementing and bolstering their PBM programs, as well as the benefits of incorporating noninvasive, continuous hemoglobin monitoring (which offers real-time visibility into hemoglobin trends for both adult and pediatric patients) into PBM strategies*.
