2.19. Release pressure on the donor's arm and remove the needle into the needle safety device following the device instructions provided on the reverse side. Sever the donor tubing between the two seals previously made below the CLIKTIP and "Y".

2.19.1. CAUTION: Discard the Diversion Blood Sampling Arm and phlebotomy needle/donor tubing according to institutional standard operating procedures.

2.20. Seal and remove donor tubing from collection bag or strip donor tubing as follows:

2.20.1. To obtain a quality control prefiltration sample, strip blood from donor tubing into collection bag, mix well, and allow tubing to refill; repeat once. To prevent the blood from clotting in the tubing, work quickly as possible. Leave an adequate length of tubing containing the well-mixed anticoagulated whole blood attached to the collection bag.

2.20.2. Or, to maximize collection recovery, strip the tubing, mix well and seal tubing close to the collection bag without refilling. To prevent the blood from clotting in the tubing, work quickly as possible. Remove tubing from collection bag.

2.21. The blood filtration is executed according to the following operation. (see Fig.4)

2.21.1. NOTE: Red blood cells collected from certain donors may have extended filtration times and the potential for ineffective filtration and leukoreduction.

2.21.2. NOTE: Wait 30 minutes after collection before filtering. Filtration can be accomplished at room temperature for units maintained at room temperature and filtered within 8 hours of collection. Filtration can also be performed with units cooled towards 1-10°C within 8 hours of collection (e.g., during transport). If any unit has not completely filtered by 8 hours post collection, filtration must be completed at 1-6°C. Filtration can be unattended.

2.22. Mix the unfiltered whole blood unit by inverting the collection bag #1 (pre-filter bag) several times.

2.23. Hang the collection bag #1 and extend the filtration set to full length. Verify that the filter is vertical and ensure all tubing is freely suspended without kinks.

2.24. Break the CLIKTIP at the outlet of the collection bag #1.

2.24.1. The filter housing will begin to fill with blood and expand on the non-textured side.

2.24.2. Blood will flow across the filter pads and expand the textured side of the filter housing.

2.24.3. Air from the bag and filter will be forced into the primary bag #2 (post-filtration bag).

2.24.3.1. CAUTION: Do not squeeze or apply pressure on the filter while it is attached to the bag containing the filtered blood.

2.25. Filtration ends when the filter has emptied and the housing has collapsed onto the filter pads.

2.25.1. NOTE: Verify that collection bag #1 and pre-filtration tubing has emptied.

2.26. Gently squeeze the primary bag #2 to expel the air in the bag up the numbered segment tubing line and into the filter. To ensure ease of air removal ensure primary bag #2 is below the filter outlet.

2.27. Fill the numbered segment tubing with blood while expelling the air.

2.28. Clamp the blood filled tubing before blood enters the filter.

2.29. Seal the tubing as close as possible to the filter outlet and properly dispose of the filter and collection bag #1.

2.30. Strip the post filter tubing into the primary bag #2, mix well, and allow tubing to refill; repeat once. Make an appropriate number of segments of anticoagulated blood for testing by sealing on or near the X marks. Leave segments attached to the filtered whole blood unit.

2.31. The time between Whole Blood collection and component separation may vary depending on both the blood bag system and processing options selected.

2.31.1. NOTE: Production of Platelet concentrates is not intended with this product.

2.31.2. NOTE: Fresh Frozen Plasma should be separated from the Red Blood Cells and placed in a freezer at –18°C or colder within 8 hours of collection.

2.31.3. NOTE: OPTISOL should be added to the Red Blood Cells immediately after removal of the plasma. If plasma is not separated from the Red Blood Cells within 8 hours, OPTISOL may be added within 72 hours of collection if Whole Blood is refrigerated.

2.32. Follow your institution's standard component processing procedures to prepare components.

2.33. Centrifuge filtered whole blood unit to separate red cells from plasma.

2.34. Break the CLIKTIP of primary bag #2 and transfer leukocytes-reduced plasma into satellite bag #3. Clamp transfer tubing of satellite bag.

2.35. Break the CLIKTIP of OPTISOL Solution bag #4 and drain contents into primary bag #2 containing red blood cells. Seal tubing of primary bag in two places, and cut between seals and separate from satellite bag(s).

2.35.1. NOTE: Empty OPTISOL container may be used for further component preparation.

2.36. Invert the red blood cell – OPTISOL mixture several times to assure the final product is well suspended.

PROCEDURE FOR USE OF DonorCare® Needle Guard

This device is for use by trained individuals.

Intended Use

The DonorCare® Needle Guard is incorporated onto the donor tubing to shield the needle immediately after withdrawal from the donor.

Single Use Only.

Preparation

  1. Move the DonorCare on the tubing ensuring that it slides easily and the arrow is pointing toward the needle hub.

  2. Ensure that the three lock points on the DonorCare are locked closed.

    Whole Blood Collection

  3. Perform the phlebotomy as per your institution's standard operating procedures.
  4. Slide the DonorCare over the needle hub so that it covers approximately one half to two thirds of the needle hub.
  5. Stabilize the DonorCare to the arm by placing a piece of tape over the front end so that the tape does not extend over the front of the DonorCare.

    Withdrawal of Needle

    Important

    The DonorCare must be held stationary while the needle is withdrawn into it.

    Caution

    The needle must be fully shielded by DonorCare to prevent accidental injury.

  6. Hold gauze over the venipuncture site with finger tips without exerting pressure. Hold the sides of the DonorCare near the front with the index finger and thumb of the same hand.
  7. With the other hand, hold the donor tubing close behind the DonorCare.

    Note: A hemostat may be placed on the tubing behind the DonorCare when the blood collection is complete.

    This will help to prevent blood drops from forming.

  8. Pull tubing smoothly and swiftly with one motion until the needle is locked in place inside the DonorCare.
  9. Confirm that the needle is locked by:
    1. Listening for two 'clicks' as the needle is drawn into DonorCare.
    2. If the clicks are not heard as the needle is drawn into the DonorCare, continue to pull firmly on the tubing to assure needle is fully withdrawn into DonorCare.
  10. Visually check that the needle is fully shielded by DonorCare before removing from the donor's arm.
  11. Remove the tape from the DonorCare and arm.

  12. Apply pressure to the gauze covering the venipuncture site.

    Warning

    Do not place fingers at the opening of DonorCare after removal from the donor's arm.

    Difficult Phlebotomy (Examples may include: Slow blood flow, deep or fine vein, steep angle)

It may be necessary to delay placing the DonorCare over the needle hub until the end of the blood collection. In such situations:

Leave the DonorCare on the tubing behind the needle hub. At the end of the blood collection carefully remove the tape from the needle hub and slide the DonorCare over the hub so that it covers approximately one half to two thirds of the needle hub. Withdraw the needle into the DonorCare as stated in steps 6. through 12. above.

Rx ONLY
