Resumé

Transfusion practice is reported to differ considerably between countries. Comparisons often rely on transfusion rates, incidence - or prevalence rates. In this paper, the one-year period prevalence rate (1-YPPR) of transfusion of red cells (RBC) is presented. Transfusion data, demographic data and patient data were retrospectively combined to calculate sex and diagnosis specific and age standardized 1-YPPR s of RBC transfusion for the complete population in a Danish county. During the calendar year of 2006, 4427 patients received RBC transfusion in Funen County. The crude 1-YPPR of RBC transfusion was 9.2/1000 citizens. Most of the transfused patients had a main diagnosis of neoplasm (22% of recipients), diseases of the circulatory system (15%), the digestive system (15%), injuries (13%) and diseases of the blood (8%). Age standardization reversed the relation between sex specific 1-YPPRs, yielding a statistically significantly higher 1-YPPR in males (6.8/1000) vs. females (6.3/1000). The method for calculating a diagnosis specific 1-YPPR of transfusion of RBC is presented and proposed as an option for comparison of transfusion practice with other transfusion centres. The crude and the diagnosis specific 1-YPPR s are found to increase with age. Thus, age standardization of crude prevalence rates is necessary for meaningful comparisons between populations.
