Background: Blood transfusion is a very essential part of medical practice. However, blood and
blood component transfusions are associated with some adverse transfusion reactions. Some of
these reactions can lead to loss of patients’ lives and hence defeating the essence of blood usage
in saving lives.
Objectives: This study aims to establish those factors promoting and increasing the susceptibility
of patients for adverse transfusion reactions.
Methodology: Two-year records (July 2014-June 2016) of our patients reported to have blood
transfusion reactions were retrieved, data collated and analysed using IBM SPSS version 22
Results: Forty-six cases out of 5,342 transfusions were reported giving a prevalence of 0.86%.
