Researchers: Prof Alistair Royse (Principal investigator) ,  Prof John Fraser Prof David Scott

Brief description This study seeks to compare outcomes for cardiac surgery patients who are given a blood transfusion where the haemoglobin concentration is <7.5 or alternatively <9.5 g/dL. Blood transfusion is common in cardiac surgery and it is not known whether a more "restrictive" approach to blood transfusion has a different outcome. This will be the largest prospective randomised study of its kind, Australia contributing to a Canadian lead multi-centre international trial.
