Transfusion of blood [3.10] and blood components[3.12] to subjects of care[3.56] is a medical activity that is subject to many legal regulations and constraints. Many problems may be encountered during treatment due to immunological conditions, transmitted diseases, sustainability and other difficulties. Mistakes and failures may have serious or even fatal consequences. Minimising human activity through the increased use of data processing and automated messaging will introduce an additional safety mechanism.
