Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants in Need for Bank Blood Transfusion [ Time Frame: At discharge ]

    Bank blood transfusions were given in both groups after assessment of independent assessor, by using a transfusion trigger. All transfusions were recorded in a transfusion log and summarized at discharge. The total number of patients per group in need for any bank blood transfusion was compared.

    The participant were followed for the duration of hospital stay, an average of 6 days (SD 3 days)
