Abstract:

Medical experience in several major world wars and other regional conflicts during the last 75 years have finally convinced the U.S. military medical planners that among other things it is a requirement and not a luxury to maintain a continuing up-to-the-minute trained group of transfusion officers to not only administer and supervise blood banks and donor centers in peacetime, but also be capable of instant mobilization to meet the needs of a major military crisis. This paper establishes a defined set of procedures to be used as an administrative adjunct to a technical BB SOP. It provides administrative guidance for the areas of donor procurement, unit processing, frozen blood components, material management, supplies, ordering, shipping, communications, Exercise Participation, military personnel, records and quality assurance, reports, watchbills, recall rosters, classified materials management, and physical plant maintenance and security for PACOM BPO - Building 1760. This manual should provide all the information necessary for trained blood bank personnel to continue the support of the mission with minimal or no guidance from present or former PACOM BPO personnel.
