I am pleased that the Haemonetics TEG system solves one of our
blood management challenges. The TEG system helps us reduce
unnecessary blood transfusions, thus helping us provide better care
to our patients and economic savings to our hospital.“

reduces blood transfusions by 50%
with the TEG® 5000 analyzer
Taipei Veterans General Hospital in
Taiwan depended upon empirically
guided transfusion therapy protocols
both during and after liver transplant
surgery, in part because they lacked
specific point-of-care hemostasis
monitors that would provide
functional information for both
coagulation factors and platelets. This
gap in data led to unnecessary blood
transfusions and blood loss.
Haemonetics introduced the
TEG®5000 Hemostasis Analyzer
System into the hospital’s blood
management program. TEG
monitoring provided surgeons with a
more comprehensive picture of each
patient’s hemostasis, helping them
deliver more targeted treatment,
including the right blood products and
the appropriate medications.
Taipei Veterans General Hospital
reported significant results based
on 40 liver transplant cases:
ƒƒ A 50% reduction in blood
transfusions (e.g., FFP, RBC,
and albumin)
ƒƒ A 55% reduction in blood loss
