Pre-operative Anemia Clinic Expansion Announced

On Friday, January 23, 2015, the Duke Anesthesiology Perioperative Enhancement Team (POET), in collaboration with the Center for Blood Conservation, announced the expansion of the Pre-operative Anemia Clinic (PAC) to Duke Perinatal in Durham.

The PAC’s work with Duke Perinatal continues a collaboration that will improve health outcomes for Duke’s expectant mothers in addition to its efforts with the broader Duke surgical patient population in advancing the “triple aim” agenda in perioperative medicine to diagnose and treat anemia prior to surgery, thereby reducing the clinical risk as well as the financial liability associated with anemia and subsequent perioperative blood transfusion.
