"Introduction
While the incidence of severe transfusion reactions is 0.09% (1/1111), the total incidence of all transfusion reactions is approximately 0.25% (1/400). Therefore, the likelihood that each emergency physician will see one is high, and we should all know the presentation, evaluation, and management of these complications. We will focus mainly on acute reactions here, as they are the most likely to occur in the ED. However, if you rotate through an ICU, or practice in an institution where you are likely to see patients who present a few days after transfusions, it is important to recognize delayed reactions as well...
