Background: Administration of blood products may be associated with increased morbidity and perioperative mortality in surgical patients. Methods: Patients aged 18 + who underwent gastrointestinal surgery at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center 9/10/2015-5/9/2018 were identified. Multivariable logistic regression models were used to evaluate impact of blood product use on survival and complications, as well as to identify factors associated with receipt of transfusions. Results: Among 10,756 patients, 35,517 units of blood products were transfused. Preoperative nadir hemoglobin was associated with receipt of blood product transfusion (OR 0.55, 95% CI 0.53, 0.68). After adjusting for patient and procedural characteristics, patients undergoing transfusion of blood products had an increased risk of perioperative mortality (OR 7.80, 95% CI 6.02, 10.10). Conclusions: The use of blood products was associated with increased risk of complication and death. Patient blood management programs should be implemented to provide rational criteria and guidance for the transfusion of blood products.
