First dog blood transfusion training organized

First


DW BUREAU Under the aegis of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav - 75 years of India's independence', the Department of Veterinary Medicine, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary & Animal Sciences University, organized three days training programme on "Practical tips on anaemia and blood transfusion in dogs". It is the first ever training program dedicated to transfusion of blood and its components in dogs in north India. The Blood Transfusion Unit at GADVASU is the first one in north India to separate the whole blood into different components, such as packed RBCs, platelets and plasma and transfuse the need based blood component into the recipient patient. In this way, blood from a single donor dog could be transfused to 3-different patients based on their requirements. Dr. Shukriti Sharma, Course Director and Blood Transfusion Unit Incharge told that the training was specifically designed for field veterinarians, clinicians and young budding postgraduates, involved in pet practice for diagnosis and treatment of anaemia to increase their professional competency. Various lectures and practical demonstrations for diagnosis of anaemia and transfusion of blood and its components following cross-matching, blood typing and screening of donor dogs for infectious pathogens were carried out. Besides, practical demonstrations on ancillary diagnostic techniques viz. ECG, Echocardiography and blood pressure measurement were also demonstrated. He said that the Blood Transfusion Unit has been appreciated throughout the country. (editor@dailyworld.in)
