Abstract

Attitudes to autologous blood donation have been surveyed in a group of 38 postoperative bariatric patients. Only two patients (5%) declined to participate. Twenty-eight of 38 (70%) successfully predeposited autologous blood. Twenty-five of 28 donors (90%) had done so at the suggestion of their surgeon. Concern about contracting AIDS was the motivating factor in the majority of patients (21 patients, = 55%). Lack of infectious complications in general was cited by an additional four (11%). All respondents would donate autologous blood in the future, and would recommend the procedure to others who were about to undergo elective surgery. There was an increase from 29% to 50% who stated that, following their autologous donation experience, they would consider being homologous volunteer blood donors in the future.
