In my Opinion all blood transfused in the NICU should follow the following guidelines:

1. Single donor blood ( As much as Possible)

2. All blood and Blood products should be Hepatitis B ,Hepatitis C, HIV , CMV , HTLV , Syphilis and any other screenable disease with high incidence in that particular country.

3. Stored rather than fresh RBC's to reduce donor exposure

4. WBC's reduced RBC's to eliminate WBC's related Complications

5.Gamma radiated RBC's to prevent GVHD

With best regards
