Abstract

The goal of this review is to familiarize readers with current issues related to red blood cell transfusion and alternative strategies in the extremely low-birth-weight neonatal population. We discuss benefits associated with packed red blood cell transfusion and unique adverse outcomes in this fragile group. Alternative strategies for the prevention of anemia requiring transfusion are also reviewed.
