In spite of lower haematocrit and haemoglobin but higher free plasma haemoglobin content, drained blood had higher ATP and 2,3-DPG concentration than pre-deposit, stored blood. Drained blood showed also less ion alterations and probably a lesser immunosuppressor capability. Thus, postoperative blood recovery seems a good source of red cell, with high oxygen transport power, and so, alone or in combination with pre-donated blood, it may contribute to reduce the necessities for homologous blood and decrease its risks.
