Guidelines for Emergency Autotransfusion in Case of Emergency Hemoabdomen
Autotransfusion is a lifesaving, cost-effective practice. It uses the patient's blood and reduces the risk of transfusion reactions in an emergency setting. With more spay/neuter clinics opening their doors to a larger number of patients, the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance has created these step-by-step guidelines to use in case of emergency hemoabdomen.

This online course covers surgical complications that may arise while performing high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter. It is appropriate for veterinary students, new spay/neuter surgeons and those who need a refresher prior to resuming surgery. It is RACE-approved and good for one hour of free CE for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
