About the event

Join us where history meets the Harbour at Sydneys original Quarantine Station and journey with us through the practical application of Intraoperative Cell Salvage 

Australian Blood Management would like invite you to participate in our Autotransfusion Symposium at The Q Station, NSW.

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.
