About the event

A crystal clear dive into the practical application of

Intraoperative Cell Salvage (ICS)

ABM in partnership with Blood Management Services Australia (BMSA) invite you

to participate in our Autotransfusion Symposium in the Gold Coast.

Our position as manufacturer independent service providers allows us to present a balanced view on

the technologies available. Our intention is to summarise the best available principles and practices in

intraoperative cell salvage and how this interacts with real life situations. We aim to offer a friendly, interactive

forum for us all to be able to learn from our collective experiences. The content is designed to be engaging and

accessible for new users, as well as challenging for experienced users.

The contact hours comprise 16 hours of continuing education points for nurses registration.


  • What exactly do we mean by Autotransfusion?
  • How does cell salvage fit into patient blood management?
  • Discussion of the human factors affecting outcome of blood loss and ICS (Hayden’s favourite!)
  • The physiology of blood loss and its management.
  • The differences in the technology available.
  • How do we ensure the quality of processed blood.
  • The dos and don’ts of cell salvage including controversial areas such as obstetrics and oncology surgery.
