Core Tip Anemia and red blood cells transfusion are common during cardiac surgery, and could be associated with adverse reactions. Preoperative hemoglobin optimization through the identification and treatment of anemia and the definition of standardized transfusion algorithm using restrictive transfusion triggers play a central role in the development of Patient Blood Management programs. However, further researches are needed to better define transfusion triggers, based on pathophysiological indices, rather than single hemoglobin thresholds.
